:eek: :eek: Black upsets Conchita Martinez

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press


MADRID, Spain -- Third-seeded Conchita Martinez lost to Cara Black 6-2, 6-3 Tuesday in the first round of the Spanish Open.

In another upset, eighth-seeded Virginia Ruano lost to Klara Koukalova 6-2, 4-6, 6-1.

Sixth-seeded Magui Serna beat Austria's Patricia Wartusch 6-2, 6-2, while Conchita Martinez Granados beat countrywoman Marta Marrero 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3), 6-4 in a tough match that lasted nearly 3½ hours.

Top seeds Chanda Rubin and Alexandra Stevenson make their debut Wednesday.



Did anyone see this match by chance?? How did it all unfold??? Blacks not bad but they way Conchita's been playing lately, its still a little shocking to me...

Cara is capable of pulling upsets. She just needs to put her mind to it and she could be back in the top 30.

I've been told that Conchi played badly and was frustated since the beginning of the match.....

:worship: i think conchi took a wildcard simply as a favour to arantxa after lindsay pulled out. true, cara had conchita in the 3rd round of RG in 2002 in three sets, but it was about time: conchita had beaten cara in 1999 3R of RG, and 2000 3R of RG, both times in three sets. :eek:

conchita needs rest after her exploits in Rome :hearts:

Well Cara has always had a sting in her tail especially on clay.

Yep I think as you wise man;)
If Conchi has gone to Madrid it's been as personal favour to ASV.

Its not too suprising, before seeing the results I would have said it would be a close match. Consider the fact that Cara has played Conchita tough on clay before, and Cara must still be on a high from performing so well in Rome. She reached the 3rd round from qualies.

This match is probably one of the few times where I don't mind that Conchi loses! :p

Traditionally, she never plays the week before the French, and although it is disappointing that she lost in fromt of home support, i still expect Conchi to do some damage at the French. :)
