Top-seeded Milos Raonic was beaten 6-2 7-6 (7) by Croatia's Ivan Dodig in the second round at the Eastbourne grass-court tournament today.

The Canadian struggled from the start, dropping his serve in the opening game and then again to fall behind 5-2. He then 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.
