Great Britain's Laura Robson was beaten in straight sets yesterday in the first round of the WTA Pan Pacific Open by the Hungarian Greta Arn.
The world No 106 triumphed 6-4, 6-3 against the 16-year-old, ranked 227, after the pair had come through qualifying in Tokyo. Arn, 31, will face Caroline Wozniacki in round two after the world No 2 and top seed received a first-round bye.
Meanwhile Gilles Simon, untroubled by the new challenges of fatherhood, won his seventh ATP title when he beat German qualifier Mischa Zverev 6-3, 6-2 in the final of the Metz International on Sunday.
The eighth-seeded Frenchman, whose season has been hampered by a knee injury, served perfectly throughout to prevail in 67 minutes against Zverev, who had beaten him in their two previous encounters.Reuse content
