Carnicero wins at home, Araujo and Castello up and running

Esther Carnicero managed to win on home soil as she and Mari Carmen Villalba beat Raquel Segura and Alicia Blanco 6-1 6-3 on Tuesday.



The Barcelo Valladolid Master's round of 32 is up and running at the iconic Plaza Major, with some of the city's finest players stepping onto the court.

While Carnicero won, it was not meant to be for another Valladolid-born player in Marina Guinart, who lost against five-seed Aranza Osoro and Lucia Sainz.
