Bacsinszky, Schnyder exit Zurich Open

Switzerland's two tennis hopes in the last ever Zurich Open have both made early exits from the tournament.

Timea Bacsinszky was beaten 6-3, 6-3 by Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik in Wednesday's first round match.

Bacsinszky said she had badly negotiated four break points: "I am really annoyed. I know I can do so much better."

Patty Schnyder, who won her eleventh career title in Bali last month, lost her match to Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic by 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 on Tuesday.

The Zurich Open WTA tour event is ending after 25 years. Swiss have won the title in 1993, 2000 and 2002.

Meanwhile in the Madrid Masters on Wednesday, Roger Federer advanced to the third round after beating the Czech Republic's Radek Stepanek 6-3, 7-6 (6).
