The seeds continued to fall in the Tashkent Open in Uzbekistan with only two left in the quarter-finals after more shocks.

Top seeded Russian Ksenia Pervak, 20, needed one hour and 22 minutes to dispatch local wild card Sabina Sharipova 6-3 6-3 and book a last eight meeting with French qualifier Victoria Larriere, who shocked fifth seed Magdalena Rybarikova 6-4 6-4.

The only other seed to advance was sixth seed Alla Kudryavtseva, the Russian proving too strong for her compatriot Vitalia Diatchenko and triumphing 6-1 2-6 6-3 in just under two hours.

Other seeds to fall were seventh seed Elena Rodina, who went down 6-7 (7-4) 6-4 6-1 to Eva Birnerova, and fourth seed Anastasija Sevastova, who was beaten 7-5 3-6 6-3 by Valeria Savinykh.

Elena Danilidou and Sorana Cirstea also advanced while Urszula Radwanska had to overcome both the loss of the first set and the local crowd to defeat Uzbek hope Akgul Amanmuradova 6-7 (7-2) 6-4 6-3.
