NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Third-seeded Eugenie Bouchard of Canada and four-time champion Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark both suffered straight-set upsets Wednesday in the second round of the Connecticut Open.

Bouchard, who played with her left thigh wrapped, lost 6-2, 6-2 to Australian Samantha Stosur.

Wozniacki, the fourth seed, was beaten 6-4, 6-2 by Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Giorgi will play Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the quarterfinals. Muguruza, ranked 26th in the world, needed three sets to dispatch qualifier Peng Shuai of China, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.

Stosur faces Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium on Thursday. Flipkins came from behind to upset Andrea Petkovic of Germany 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6) in a match that lasted 3 hours, 11 minutes.

Second-seeded Petra Kvitova, who won Tuesday, is only remaining seeded player in the tournament.
