PORTOROZ, Slovenia -- Unseeded Russian Anna Chakvetadze scored a surprise victory in second-round action at the Slovenia Open.

On Wednesday, Chakvetadze dismantled four-seed Italian Sara Errani by a 6-1, 6-2 count in a match that lasted just 58 minutes.

It was a sudden end to the tournament for Errani, who produced a hard-fought straight-set victory against Georgian qualifier Anna Tatishvili on Tuesday.

Slovene Polona Hercog also advances, getting by countrywoman Katarina Srebotnik 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 6-3 on the hardcourts. Hercog will have to take down Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland, who downed Austrian Tamira Paszek by a 7-5, 6-4 result.

In other action, sixth-seed Vera Dushevina of Russia dispatched unranked Virginie Razzano of France 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. Dushevina's road to the next round doesn't get any easier, as she faces a showdown with Chakvetadze.
