Sweden's Peter Lundgren defeated fifth-seeded David Pate, 3-6, 6-1, 6-3, as the streak of upsets continued Wednesday in the second round of the $293,400 Transamerica Open at San Francisco's Cow Palace.
Lundgren got even for a loss last week in Los Angeles to Pate, who won that tournament by beating Sweden's Stefan Edberg in the final.
In another San Francisco upset, eighth-seeded Jay Berger lost to Sammy Giammalva, 7-6, 6-3. After three days of play, the only seeded players remaining are No. 7 Kevin Curren and No. 1 Ivan Lendl.
Lendl disposed of Mel Purcell in less than an hour, 6-2, 6-3, in a first-round match.
Top-seeded Chris Evert routed Anne Minter of Australia, 6-0, 6-1, to move into the second round of a Virginia Slims tournament at New Orleans.
