CHARLESTON, AAP – Sam Stosur has suffered an early exit at the Volvo Car Open against world No.107 Kristie Ahn.
Stosur had 26 unforced errors in her 6-2 6-4 loss to Ahn, her first opening-round loss at the green claycourt tournament since 2007.

She will next head back to home soil for Australia’s Fed Cup World Group Play-off tie against Netherlands in Wollongong.
