Nao Hibino was a shock first-round casualty at the Monterrey Open on Monday but fellow seed Ann Li advanced.

Seeded ninth for the WTA International tournament, Japan’s Hibino was upstaged 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 by Jasmine Paolini. American eighth seed Li, however, had no such trouble in her 6-3, 7-5 victory over Arantxa Rus on the outdoor hard courts.

More woe for Vandeweghe

Coco Vandeweghe – the 2017 Australian Open semi-finalist – suffered another early exit. After being ousted by Mihaela Buzarnescu in the opening round in Guadalajara last week, former world No 9 Vandeweghe was eliminated 6-3, 6-2 by Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez. Fernandez will face either top seed Sloane Stephens or lucky loser Kristina Kucova in the second round.

Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, Nina Stojanovic, Viktoria Kuzmova, Lauren Davis and Tamara Zidansek all progressed from the opening round.
