British number two Anne Keothavong throws away a final-set lead before crashing out to Marina Erakovic in the first round of the Texas Open.

British number two Anne Keothavong has been knocked out of the Texas Open in the first round.

The 28-year-old had looked to be on course for a superb victory against New Zealand's Marina Erakovic - ranked 24 places above her in the WTA rankings - when she went a break of serve ahead during the final set.

However, Erakovic, 24, stormed back to eventually prevail 6-1 5-7 7-6 (11/9).

Erakovic then teamed up with British number one Heather Watson and the pair overcame American duo Elizabeth Lumpkin and Yasmin Schnack 6-2 2-6 10-8.
