Just a day after top seed Francesca Schiavone exited the Hanson Korea Open in the first round, second-seeded Marion Bartoli fell in the second round to Vania King 6-3 7-5.
Seventeen double faults and first serve percentage of 43 marked Bartoli’s game and those weaknesses handed King almost half of the points on Bartoli’s serve. The world No.98 King scored her first Top 10 victory.
King’s opponent in the quarterfinals of the Hansol Korea Open will be Klara Zakopalova, who upset seventh-seeded Irina-Camelia Begu 6-1 6-1. (photo: © Neal Trousdale)
