Julia Goerges produced an upset when she sent Madrid Open finalist Kristina Mladenovic packing on Next Gen Arena on Tuesday.

The German, who is ranked 31 places below her opponent, fought back from 5-3 down in the opening set and secured the only break of serve in the second set on her way to a 76(6) 75 victory.

Svetlana Kuznetsova prevailed 61 76(3) against Czech youngster Katerina Siniakova, despite a spirited second set fightback from the world No. 37.

“I was feeling like in total control [at 6-1 4-1 up] and it was too good to be true,” said the No. 7 seed. “Then I start to rush things and started to play fast, and it was very wrong for me. Then I found myself 4- 5 and she was serving. So Carlos [Kuznetsova’s coach] came out and tried to help me, and he did great job.”

No. 5 seed Johanna Konta dropped just three games as she saw off Yulia Putintseva in the opening match on Pietrangeli Court to set up a third round clash against either Venus Williams or Lesia Tsurenko.

Elsewhere there were wins for Ekaterina Makarova, Anett Kontaveit and No. 15 seed Kiki Bertens.
