Switzerland's Emmanuelle Gagliardi, on the other hand, found her luck was out, forfeiting her match aagainst Italy's Rita Grandea because of a bad back.

Meanwhile, Swiss men's tennis had mixed fortunes at the Nottingham Open in England. Marc Rosset beat Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela, 6-4 6-4, but his fellow Swiss, Roger Federer, was unlucky to lose to Australia's Richard Fromberg, 7-5 6-1.
