Defending champion Magdalena Rybarikova rallied past Christina McHale for a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 victory in the first round of the Citi Open on Monday. Playing with a wrap on her left thigh because of a lower back injury, the seventh-seeded Rybarikova twice lost serve in the opening set. The 43rd-ranked Slovak rebounded as McHale also struggled on her serve. ''Her game went down and I had my chances,'' said Rybarikova, who broke McHale three times in the final set. ''Especially in the third set, I really played my game.'' Paula Ormaechea advanced with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Beatrice Capra. In the men's event, 2011 champion Radek Stepanek defeated American Steve Johnson 7-6 (3), 6-3. Somdev Devvarman beat Rhyne Williams 7-5, 6-1.
