Agnes Szavay and Anna Chakvetadze both went out in the first round in Dubai today. Szavay was defeated 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 by Camille Pin in a match in which Szavay double-faulted nine times. People tend to dismiss Pin because she cannot serve (why didn't she ever do something to fix that?), but the rest of her game is pretty good.
Chakvetadze was beaten by Ayumi Morita, 7-5, 6-2.
In other Dubai news, things went better for Ana Ivanovic this time when she played Alisa Kleybanova in their second round match. Ivanovic won, 7-5, 6-4.
