Seles was upset 6-2, 6-4 by Henrieta Nagyova of Slovakia in the third round of the $1.3 million Evert Cup women’s tennis tournament.
In her match with Seles, Nagyova captured the opening five games and took just 65 minutes to eliminate the No. 3 seed.
“My head wasn’t there. I think my game wasn’t there. She didn’t give me a chance to get into it,” said Seles, who is playing at Indian Wells for the first time since winning the event in 1992.
“It was the first win … against a top 10 player,” Nagyova said. “I played … the best match of my career.”
