Andrea Petkovic crashed out of the Guangzhou International Women’s Open in the first round with a straight-sets defeat to Monica Puig.

The world number 19 and second seed succumbed to a 6-1 6-4 defeat to Puig on Tuesday, marking her second straight surprise loss following defeat to Johanna Konta in the third round of the US Open.

Puig, ranked 106th, raced into a 4-0 lead before taking the first set and then displayed resiliency to bounce back from an early break in the second to set up a clash with Yanina Wickmayer, who beat Magda Linette 6-4 6-4.
