Updated: Doubles defeat for Ana and Maria

Ana and Maria Kirienko lost their first round doubles match against Jelena Jankovic and Tina Krizan. The teenagers lost 6-3, 6-4 in what ranks as their most disappointing result of their short partnership.

Ana and Maria had reached two semi-finals and a final in their first three tournaments together so hopes were high, but Jankovic and Krizan, both of whom have played twice as many doubles matches as Ana, proved too strong and won the big points.

Ana said: "It was a very strange match. We just didn’t perform.

"I think both of us, me as well of course, weren’t really there, not concentrating like we usually do."

Ana faces Dinara Safina in the third round of the singles competition tomorrow. The match will take place at 12pm local time (1pm Central European Time) on Court 13.
