STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Sixth-seeded Andrea Petkovic got her body realigned and returned to form to beat fellow German Carina Witthoeft in a first-round match of the Bank of the West Classic on Monday.
"I played really bad up to 1-5," Petkovic said. "It felt like my upper body and lower body were swapped. After that I played fine."
The 17th-ranked Petkovic won 5-7, 6-1, 6-3.
