Just days after the biggest clay court tournament of the year wraps up, the WTA stars shift to grass.
And it's the Aegon Classic in Birmingham where the players shift to first in the grass court season.
Grass was never Francesca Schiavone's best surface, and she fell in the first round this week too.
Belinda Bencic beat last year's runner-up, Donna Vekic, before falling to the defending champion...
Camila Giorgi won a round but was outdone by Wimbledon semifinalist Kirsten Flipkens in the next one.
Lucie Safarova had a great French Open but dropped her opener here to Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.
Daniela Hantuchova, the aforementioned defending champion here, beat Bencic in her first match...
... but the former World No.5 was stunned by Kimiko Date-Krumm, a former World No.4, in the 16s.
As was Samantha Stosur, also a former World No.4, who fell against fellow Australian Casey Dellacqua.
Dellacqua had never been beyond the quarterfinals of a Premier-level event before Birmingham.
Klara Koukalova battled into the quarterfinals before losing out to the No.1 seed, Ana Ivanovic.
And Sloane Stephens, the No.3 seed, fell on Quarterfinal Friday too, to No.9 seed Zhang Shuai.
WTA Rising Star Ashleigh Barty has been doing her part off the court this week, here at a Kids Clinic.
The young Australian, who turned 18 earlier this year, showed off her skills at the Kids Village.
Barty and Dellacqua are the defending doubles champions here, and one of the best teams in the world.
