Photos from Bastad: First-round action & players' party fun at the Ericsson Open

After yesterday’s rain-shortened action at the 2016 Ericsson Open, Tuesday in Bastad was blessed with plenty of sunshine and the first round of Sweden’s WTA tournament was in full swing.

Spectators got to watch Sara Errani’s successful start at the tournament, as the #2 seed won her first-round match in straight sets, joining 2015 Bastad champion Johanna Larsson, who kept the upper-hand over fellow Swede Rebecca Peterson.

Tuesday was a particularly good day for all the German players, with all four of them clearing the first round. While Annika Beck got past Sorana Cirstea and Mona Barthel beat Yaroslava Shvedova, Julia Goerges was involved in a fierce battle against Polona Hercog. Two and a half hours and three sets later, Goerges joined the group of successful Germans that was rounded out by Stuttgart surprise finalist Laura Siegemund.

In the evening, Bastad got into a proper party mood as it was time for the players' party. Practically full players' field was in attendance for a fun-filled evening with drinks, before the business end of the tournament resumes on Wednesday morning.

The Ericsson Open first round will complete tomorrow, featuring the first match of tournament's #1 seed Angelique Kerber, as the Wimbledon finalist will face off with Sweden’s own Cornelia Lister.
