18 year old Kazakhstani star Zarina Diyas was made to pay for too many unforced errors as she came up short against Alberta Brianti in the first round of WTA Baku.

The future is bright for Kazakhstani tennis with Yaroslava Shvedova and Ksenia Pervak ranked inside the top 50 and Diyas has the potential to join them in the higher echelons of the women's game judging by some of her results so far.

She hit the headlines by reaching the quarters of WTA Prague aged just 15 and then a year later she earned her first wins over top 50 players at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, stunning Gisela Dulko after coming through qualifying before thrashing world number seven Jelena Jankovic 6-1, 6-2 in under an hour.

However Diyas has been hindered by multiple injuries over the past year and a half and she's on the comeback trail once again, ranked down at 249 in the world. However she showed promising signs at a 25K ITF event in Uzbekhistan last month, winning the title without dropping a set.

Having made the main draw cut for WTA Baku this week, Diyas' lack of sharpness was ruthlessly exposed by the experienced Brianti earlier today. The Italian took advantage of multiple unforced errors from her young opponent as she cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 win.
