Canadian Eugenie Bouchard (above) made a winning debut at the ATP-WTA Portugal Open on Tuesday as third seed Samantha Stosur’s downward spiral continued with a first-round exit. The 30-year-old Australian Stosur was beaten in just 72 minutes, going down 6-4, 6-0 to Swiss qualifier Timea Bacsinszky, and will now need to make amends quickly next week in Madrid as the French Open draws nearer.

Second seed Bouchard, who was a semi-finalist at the Australian Open in Melbourne in January, beat Russian Alisa Kleybanova 6-4, 6-1 to reach the second round, winning in 73 minutes.AFP
