ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) -Second-seeded Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan was eliminated in the first round of the St. Petersburg Open, losing to Lukasz Kubot of Poland 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 Wednesday.

Eight-seeded Jurgen Zopp of Estonia advanced to the second round when Russian qualifier Andrey Kumantsov, trailing 6-3, 5-3, retired because of dizziness.
