April 03, 1992

HILTON HEAD, S.C. -- Second seed Martina Navratilova was eliminated in straight sets, and a qualifier for the first time in a decade made the quarterfinals at the $550,000 Family Circle Magazine Cup yesterday.

The top seed, Gabriela Sabatini of Argentina, led her third-round match against Amanda Coetzer of South Africa, 7-5, 5-3, when play was suspended because of darkness.

Navratilova was ousted, 6-4, 6-2, by Natalia Zvereva of Belarus, who is seeded No. 10.

Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, the No. 3 seed from Spain, dispatched Ines Gorrochategui of Argentina, 6-2, 6-1. She now meets Leila Meskhi, the No. 7 seed from Georgia, who made the final last year. Meskhi won, 3-6, 6-2, 7-5, over No. 16 Debbie Graham.
