BASTAD, Sweden - Grace Min of the United States upset second-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the first round of the Swedish Open on Monday.

The 20-year-old Min, who reached her first WTA semifinal in Bad Gastein last week, beat the 23rd-ranked Russian 6-0, 6-4 after trailing 4-2 in the second set.

Jana Cepelova from Slovakia defeated Swedish wild card Rebecca Peterson 6-4, 6-4, while Irina-Camelia Begu from Romania retired at 4-2 down in the second after losing the opener 6-4 to Spain's Lara Arruabarrena.

Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa also made it through after beating Mariana Duque-Marino of Colombia, 6-3, 6-4.

Scheepers moved into the main draw when top-seeded Serena Williams announced she would not appear at Bastad this year because she was "still not at 100 per cent" after a viral illness.
