The Russian got off to a solid start in the match by winning a tie-break to take the opening set 7-6.

But the Slovak hit back, taking the second set 6-4 at the grass court event before going on to win the decider by the same margin.

Rybarikova will go on to face Elena Vesina in the second round, while Safina's season appears to be in tatters: it is now nearly two months since she last won a match.
