Olga Govortsova claimed the shock result of the first round at the Barcelona Ladies Open, as she defeated top seed Francesca Schiavone in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3. The Belarusian will now be looking to build upon this, as she prepares to take on Laura Pous-Tio for a place in the quarter-finals.

“We played each other four times before, so I knew how she plays - she doesn't make mistakes,” said Govortsova, who had only beaten Schiavone once prior to this week. “I knew I had to be aggressive against her, and I did a good job of that today.”

Govortsova will now meet Spain’s Laura Pous-Tio, who should be able to rely on the backing of the home crowd. Pous-Tio made an explosive start here, thrashing Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2.

Govortsova is the slight favourite here, and this is backed up to some extent by her 7-5, 7-5 win against Pous-Tio last year in Hobart. That said, this should be a close match, and it would be no major surprise to see Pous-Tio upset the odds.
