RG Day Three: WTA Round-Up

Posted by gauloises1 on May 27, 2009

I’m not going to lie, blogging is *slightly* getting on top of me this week. So sorry if I’m missing interesting stuff. There’s so much actual tennis it’s hard to keep up with everything around the tennis …

Anyway, here’s my half-assed attempt to round up everything I missed on the vaginal side of things.

In addition to Serena’s previously-discussed win, two other top-tenners were in action today. Jelena Jankovic in her new blue ANTA outfit (which I’m not sure I like) dismissed Petra Cetkovska with nary a blink other than that caused by a rain delay.

Blow, wind, and crack thy cheeks.

I definitely like Zheng Jie Jie Zheng’s outfit better, but this is a gorgeous colour on JJ, and let’s face it, the woman is always going to look good on clay.

Elena Dementieva went down a break initially to Chanelle “jeepers creepers, where’d you get those peepers?” Scheepers, but steadied the ship to win in straight sets with only a modicum of drama.

In what felt like it should have been a upset but actually wasn’t, homegirl and dangerous floater Virginie Razzano took out Daniela Hantuchova.

Anabel Medina Garrigues faced a tough challenge from recent two-time finalist Ekaterina Makarova, but took care of business in the end with a third-set bagel, and Svetlana Kuznetsova took out French wildcard Feuerstein. In pink, no less.

On the less seedy side of things, Czink, Rybarikova, Bammer, Kutuzova, Cirstea, Wickmayer, Martic, Stosur and Wozniak all advanced. Ruano Pascal knocked out Nicole Vaidisova in straights, and Jelena Dokic made it through to the next round over fading Croatian hope (and typist’s nightmare) Karolina Sprem:

Oh, and a shout out to Galina Voskoboeva (or Voskybosky, as I like to think of her), who kept me in the suicide pool by knocking out Sania Mirza.

The thanks of a grateful nation to you, Vosky.
