L.A.: Shazza Outlasts Blondarenko, Stosur Ousts Ivanovic

Posted by gauloises1 on August 7, 2009

Good to see Sharapova backing up her win over Azarenka; she beat Alona Bondarenko in three sets, including a bagel.


Pose later, play now.


That’s the stuff to give the troops.

A nice revenge win for Shazza over Alona, who beat her in Warsaw and if memory serves had some unflattering things to say about the state of Shazza’s game afterwards. Considering she’s up against Urszula Radwanska next, she has an excellent chance of making the semis.

On the other side of the draw, Sam Stosur rolled over Ana Ivanovic in straight sets to set up a probable quarterfinal meeting with Dinara Safina, assuming she gets past Zheng Jie Jie Zheng.


Ana was reportedly her usual smiley, blathery self in her post-match presser, saying that she feels as if she’s headed in the right direction and that she’s “really [been] through a lot in the past couple of months”. Hmmm. Changing coaches and getting a new boyfriend is pretty tough. I’d still have to give the edge to Stosur though, what with the Lyme disease and viral meningitis and everything.

But seriously. Can we have the old Ana back? This is getting boring.

    I laughed so loud my aunt’s dogs started barking from downstairs. Pretty sure it woke up my cousin. Well done.

    ALSO, is it just me or do all of Masha’s new outfits look over-designed?? I feel like she had too much time on her hands while she wasn’t playing and just took the all a step too far…
