Beijing: The Coneback Starts Here

Posted by gauloises1 on October 4, 2009

OK, probably not. But Alize won a match! Admittedly I’m not sure whether to attribute it more to progress on her part or the persistent inconsistency of Sam Stosur. Still, good result for Alize. Wozniak next. You can take her, Cornet!

In fact, it was a fairly action-packed day in Beijing. Flavia Pennetta, the aforementioned Wozniak, and Alona Bondarenko all notched up wins in main draw action, and in qualifying, Kateryna Bondarenko, Shahar Peer, Melinda Czink, Yaroslava Shvedova, Urszula Radwanska and Alla Kudryavtsyeva all nabbed places in the main draw. Oh, and Pavs won – hooray! – setting up a rematch with Venus, after Venus prevailed over Vera Dushevina. Only after making life extremely difficult for herself in the second set though.
