Eastbourne & Ordina Open: WTA Results

Posted by gauloises1 on June 17, 2009

First things first. Let’s get this out of the way. Momo lost to Ekaterina Makarova 76(8) 76(13). EKATERINA MAKAROVA.

“I have no idea. I don’t have any explanations to give you,” said world No.l7 Mauresmo. “She did just a little better than me. I took chances and it didn’t work. I guess the main thing is to forget about this match and look forward to Wimbledon.”

Please, please let this be one of the times when she loses early and then gets so pissed, she comes out firing at the next tournament and destroy the competition.

And if not … you’re on my list, Makarova.

So what else happened? How about Virginie Razzano taking out Elena Dementieva in three sets? I only saw the first (bagel) set and the beginning of the second, but it was clear that Virginie had a very clear (and clever) game plan, and was focussed on executing it perfectly. Wonderful tennis to watch.

Sadly, Nadia Petrova and Li Na Na Li were forced to retire against Vera Dushevina and Agnieszka Radwanska. Caroline Wozniacki had a good win against Sam Stosur. Well, I *say* a good win. She really had her chances to finish it off in two. Still, Sam’s got some work to do before Wimbledon.

Wozniak had another good win over Zheng Jie Jie Zheng, and Marion Bartoli put out JJ-killer Anna Chakvetadze. Is anybody else kind of feeling Marion for the title?

In Den Bosch, things were a little less interesting. A bad day for the Bondarenkos, as Alona and Kateryna lost to Schiavone and Hantuchova respectively, but otherwise no great surprises.
