Shock exit for Kvitova in Shenzhen first round


BEIJING: Double Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova went out of the WTA Shenzhen Open in the first round on Tuesday, retiring hurt in a shock exit for the world No.6. The second seed was broken twice as she lost the first set 6-2 against China’s Zheng Saisai — ranked 72 in the world — in 41 minutes, and dropped out before a point was played in the second set. It was Kvitova’s second consecutive first-round exit in China, after she went out at the first hurdle at the China Open in October — when she played on painkillers while suffering the ongoing effects of glandular fever.
