Marina Erakovic ousted from Swedish Open

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 18/07/2016

New Zealand tennis No.1 Marina Erakovic has failed in a bid to qualify for the main draw of the Swedish Open in Bastad.

World No.114 Erakovic lost to a player ranked four places below her, Slovakian Jana Cepelova, 6-1 6-3 in the second round of qualifying.

Erakovic has struggled to push on since reaching the third round at Wimbledon three weeks ago, having exited in the first round of a WTA tournament in Switzerland last week.

Meanwhile, the second-seeded pair of New Zealand's Artem Sitak and American Nicholas Monroe are through to the quarter-finals of the ATP Croatian Open in Umag, winning 6-2 6-1 over Croats Dino Marcan and Ante Pavic.
