Marina Erakovic has made it back into the winner's circle for the first time since May, winning her match against Kritsyna Pliskova at the WTA tournament in Washington DC.

The New Zealand No 1 defeated the Czech 4-6 6-2 6-4 in one hour 34 minutes to book her place in the second round

She will now face American Shelby Rogers, who was given a wildcard into the main draw of the tournament.

Rogers caused an upset by defeating the tournament's third seed Alize Cornet from France 7-5 4-6 6-4.

Erakovic's pervious win was against Nadiia Kichenok from Ukraine in the first round of the French Open.

After four successive defeats, Erakovic took a break after Wimbledon and Washington is her first tournament since then.
