Samsonova has forged a reputation as one of the most feared players in the draw having won a maiden WTA title in Berlin as a qualifier and ascending to a career-high ranking of World No. 42.

But the 22-year-old Russian was largely second-best against Tomljanovic who has the measure of Samsonova throughout their one and half hour contest.

Samsonova served six aces but accounted for four double faults. She made a horrible start to proceedings as Toljanovic coasted to take the opening four games without reply. The Australian fought power with her own power and rounded off the first set 6-2.

It was a similar pattern in the second set, with Tomljanovic securing two breaks of serve. But even after dropping her own serve at 1-4, the insurance break proved decisive.
