Canada's Rebecca Marino lost 7-5, 6-4 to No. 12 seed Camila Giorgi of Italy in the second round of the Rothesay Invitational on Tuesday.

Marino, from Vancouver, was playing Giorgi for the first time in 12 years.

The tournament in Eastbourne, England is a grass-court tune-up for Wimbledon, which starts next week.

Her lone career win at Wimbledon came in 2011.
