Ustero and Alonso came to Valencia with great momentum, having just reached the quarter-finals in Valladolid from the qualifying rounds, but were beaten on Wednesday by the eight-seed.

Elsewhere, Italians Giulia Sussarello and Emily Stellato continued their great season as they are now into the second round, having come from qualifying. 

They beat favourites Ariadna Cañellas and Carla Mesa 7-6 6-4 in what has been the best season of their respective careers.

Finally, the first meeting since splitting between Marta Talavan and Lorena Rufo would end in tears, as the teenager Rufo had to stop the match due to injury in the third set.
