Tsurenko dumped out in Katowice, Flipkens through


Sixth seed Lesia Tsurenko was dumped out of the Katowice Open in the first round as Stefanie Voegele caused an early shock in Poland.

After a shaky start Tsurenko's game totally deserted her as Voegele won eight games in a row to complete a comprehensive 6-4 6-0 victory on Monday.

Ninth seed Kirsten Flipkens had fewer problems as she strolled past her opening round adversary Donna Vekic 6-1 6-4, the Belgian not facing a single break point in the match.

Next up for Flipkens is Andreea Mitu after she came from a set down to beat Romina Oprandi 4-6 6-2 7-5, while Kristyna Pliskova was also made to battle for her 6-2 3-6 6-4 win over Heather Watson.

Meanwhile, Monday's final match saw Elizaveta Kulichkova beat wildcard Vera Lapko 7-6 (7-4) 6-0.
