Didn't Camilla Kremer win a £10k somewhere recently? Portugal?
Yes, another fairly poor start for the British players. Let's hope Lorna Woodroffe can at least get through to a semi-final, possibly against Bachmann.
However, a potential quarter finalist is Elodie Lebescond, who must be playing well to beat Shelley Stephens 6-1, 6-1.
The bottom half of the draw is dominated by Eastern Europeans. A Birnerova - Kondratieva semi-final looks one possibility.
Keothavong and Woodroffe did beat the Vesenjak sisters (Slovenia) 6-0, 7-5 in the first round of the doubles
