Bulgaria's top female tennis player Tsvetana Pironkova was defeated in the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open on Monday.

Pironkova was defeated with 3;6, 1:6 by Lucie Safarova in a match, which lasted 73 minutes, daily Dnevnik reports.

The Bulgarian suffered a heavy defeat and could not offer a considerable resistance to Safarova throughout the match.

Pironkova started the first set well, coming in the lead with 3:2, but then she lost nine games in a row, which considerably affected the outcome of the match.

Safarova recorded her fourth consecutive victory against the Bulgarian, having won all but one of the direct encounters against her opponent.
