Luxembourg, Moscow: Mumback Continues, Licky Wins

Posted by gauloises1 on October 20, 2009

They aren’t hanging around on the ladies’ side as the race to Doha/Bali/ending the season with some form of dignity goes on. In Luxembourg, all the seeds progressed including Suarez Navarro, who seems to be having a late surge, and a certain Licky, knocking out a potentially tricky opponent in the form of Iveta Benesova 61 64. That’s my girl. Sadly Laura Robson fell in the final round of qualifying. Again.

At the Kremlin Cup, Lucie Safarova and Alona Bondarenko negotiated tough openers, beating Ekaterina Makarova and Anna Chakvetadze respectively. Seventh seed Dominika Cibulkova, who has been conspicuous by her absence of late, fell to the many-named Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, and Nadia Petrova steamrolled wildcard Yana Buchina 62 60. Well done.
