Top seed Elena Dementieva lost to Virginie Razzano 6-0 3-6 7-6(4) in the second round of the AEGON International in Eastbourne.
The world No.4 Dementieva was bageled after 21 minutes. In the second set she recovered her aggression, but missed her chances in the third-set tiebreak.
With No.7 seed Nadia Petrova also losing on Wednesday, more precisely retiring because of problems with her back, only two seeded players have reached the Eastbourne quarterfinals: eighth-seeded holder Agnieszka Radwanska and sixth seed Caroline Wozniacki.
