EASTBOURNE, England (AP)—Top-seeded Milos Raonic was upset 6-2, 7-6 (7) by Ivan Dodig in the second round at the Eastbourne grass-court tournament on Wednesday.

The Canadian struggled from the start, dropping his serve in the opening game and again to fall behind 5-2. He failed to convert a break point as Dodig served for the set. The second set went with serve and Raonic failed to convert a set point in the tiebreaker before Dodig clinched the match.

Earlier, Marion Bartoli of France withdrew from the tournament with a viral infection, giving No. 2-seeded Li Na of China a walkover into the quarterfinals.

Later, 2012 runner-up Angelique Kerber plays 2010 champion Elena Makarova and Petra Kvitova faces Yanina Wickmayer.
