Former French Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova exited the ATP/WTA Portugal Open on Thursday, a bitter 6-2, 6-2 quarter-final victim of Swiss outsider Romina Oprandi.
"Unfortunately this was just one of those days where I wish I didn't even step on the court," complained the 27-year-old wildcard who won the French Open in 2009, five years after lifting the US Open.
"It was just a horrible match, I haven't played that badly for a long time. Romina's style of play doesn't give you any rhythm to get into the match, which is a good tactic for her.
