Eugenie Bouchard's comeback match from concussion ended in tears Monday when dizzy spells forced her to retire from her China Open first-round match against Andrea Petkovic.On a day when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was also hit by dizziness, Bouchard lasted just 10 games before retiring from her first match since she slipped and banged her head in the locker rooms at the U.S. Open.Earlier Tsonga refused to blame Beijing's notorious air pollution as he was also hit by dizzy spells before falling at the first hurdle 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 to little-known Austrian Andreas Haider-Maurer.The departures of Tsonga and Bouchard came after women's top seeds Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova, troubled by injury and illness, both exited Sunday.
