Nalbandian crashes out at Tennis Classic

Defending champion David Nalbandian dropped out of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington DC at the first difficulty as he was defeated by James Blake. Nalbandian, seeded eighth, never found his rhythm as he lost 6-2 6-4 in the second-round clash.

The Argentinean was the only seed to lose as number 11 John Isner topped Tobias Kamke 6-1 6-3, 13th seed Kevin Anderson rallied to send off qualifier Chris Guccione 3-6 6-2 7-6 (7-0) and No 16 Jarkko Nieminen beat Igor Kunitsyn 7-5 6-4, all in second-round clashes.

The rest of the action was in the first round, and was painted by a long clash between Grigor Dimitrov and Tim Smyczek, which finally saw Dimitrov come through 4-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-3).
