Medina-Garrigues out in Strasbourg

Three-times WTA Strasbourg champion Anabel Medina-Garrigues went out of this year's tournament at the quarter-final stage after losing 7-6(2) 7-6(5) to Alize Cornet.


The Spanish fourth-seed was defeated in a close-run contest against the French wild card, twice coming up short in tie-breaks.

World number 83 Cornet will now face fellow French competitor Pauline Parmentier, who beat Alexandra Panova of Russia 6-3 6-3.

Francesca Schiavone is the only seeded player left in the tournament after her comfortable 6-0 6-3 win over Sweden's Johanna Larsson.

The Italian second seed will play Sloane Stephens for a place in the final after the American defeated Japan's Ayumi Morita 6-3 6-4.
