BRISBANE, AAP –┬áSam Stosur’s lean record on home soil continued on Sunday, with the Queenslander bundled out 6-1 6-3 by Brisbane International seventh seed Anastasija Sevastova.

The world No.41 had her opportunities in the first set, but wasn’t given a second chance by the Latvian in a one-sided affair on Pat Rafter Arena.

In eight visits to Brisbane, Stosur is yet to pass the second round.

Stosur will play the Sydney International before attempting to progress beyond the fourth round for the first time at the Australian Open.
