Ealry elimination for Sakkari

Although she won the first set, the Greek champion ended the game, losing 5-7, 6-1, 6-3 to Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in her Kremlin Cup tournament opener in Moscow last night.

Maria Sakkari started off very well, taking the first set, but left out of power quickly, losing the next two sets relatively easily to her Russian opponent.

This early blocking also means less chances for the 24-year-old tennis player to secure a place in the 12th WTA Elite Trophy, held next week in Zhuhai, China.
