Canada's Bouchard eliminated 6-2, 6-0 by qualifier Mertens at Ricoh Open

June 06, 2016 - 11:12 AM

ROSMALEN, Netherlands - Montreal's Eugenie Bouchard had a rough start to the grass-court tennis season, losing 6-2, 6-0 to Elise Mertens on Monday at the Ricoh Open.

Bouchard, the tournament's seventh seed, was broken six times in nine chances by the Belgian qualifier.

The up-and-down 2016 season continues for Bouchard, who advanced to two finals earlier this year but was coming off a disappointing second-round exit at the French Open.

Also Monday, Toronto's Daniel Nestor and Pakistan's Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi lost 6-3, 6-1 to Mexico's Santiago Gonzalez and Scott Lipsky of the U.S.

Vancouver's Vasek Pospisil faces Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in first'round men's action on Tuesday.
