Schiavone, Wozniacki beaten in Eastbourne
Also beaten were fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska and sixth-seeded Flavia Pennetta. Kim Clijsters fared far better in her first match on grass in nearly four years, defeating fellow Belgian Yanina Wickmayer 6-1, 6-1 in this Wimbledon warmup.
“She tried to take the ball early and hit every shot,” Wozniacki said. “Definitely, I would like to have got some more matches here but I just need to keep my head up and play some practice matches and prepare for Wimbledon that way.”
Clijsters last played on grass in the 2006 Wimbledon semifinals. On Tuesday, she ousted her 20-year-old opponent in 54 minutes.
Radwanska, the 2008 champion, lost 7-6 (2), 6-1 to Victoria Azarenka of Belarus. Pennetta was beaten 7-6 (5), 6-1 by Russian qualifier Ekaterina Makarova. Nadia Petrova struggled before edging Croatian qualifier Karolina Sprem 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4).
