Lead seed loses again at Eastbourne

The Argus: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in action today Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in action today

Eastbourne top seed Agnieszka Radwanska made an instant exit from the tournament today for the third year running.

The women's world No. 4 from Poland, champion in 2008, lost a gruelling battle on centre court against Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the Aegon International 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4).

Dan Evans became the first British casualty in the men's event.

The British No. 2 behind Andy Murray suffered a 6-2, 6-3 defeat in 66 minutes against German qualifier Tobias Kamke.

Evans, ranked 139 in the world, had no answer on court one to Hamburg-based Kamke, ranked 64.

Kamke's reward is a clash against defending champion and third seed Feliciano Lopez, the runner-up at Queen's last week. The Spaniard has a bye through to the second round.
