CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Top-seeded Anna Kournikova lost to rookie Bruna Colosio 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-4 in the first round of the USTA Women's Pro Tennis Championship on Wednesday.
Colosio, ranked No. 384 in the world, won two qualifying matches earlier this week to earn a berth in the 32-player field. The 72nd-ranked Kournikova, who was bothered by a left thigh injury that forced her to withdraw from the Cloister Cup over the weekend, was the only player in the top 100 entered in the USTA Pro Circuit clay court event.
Colosio held serve just once in the third set but broke Kournikova in each of her five service games. Kournikova served 15 double faults in the match, including two in the final game.
