Agnes Szavay, seeded second at the Nordea Nordic Light Open in Stockholm, was defeated 6-4 7-6 by last-year’s finalist Vera Dushevina in the second round of the Tier IV tournament.
Szavay broke early in both sets, but couldn’t capitalize. In the first set she was leading 5-4 and was serving for the set, but made two double-faults and two forehand misses. Eventually, Dushevina entered the quarterfinals by winning a close tiebreaker against Szavay.
World No.14 Szavay made it big last year, but this season hasn’t been so bright for the Hungarian. We’re waiting for her to rise again and reach the very top.
