Hobart: Peer, AMG, A Bondarenko Through
Posted by gauloises1 on January 14, 2010
Shahar Peer kept her impressive early-season form going today, surviving a tough challenge from Carla Suarez-Navarro to progress to the semifinals, 46 76(4) 75.
You don’t make her angry.
Next up for Shahar is Sara Errani, who beat qualifier Kirsten Flipkens to make the semis. In the top half of the draw, Anabel Medina Garrigues faces Alona Bondarenko after victories over Gisela Dulko and Zheng Jie respectively.
Top seed. Somehow.
The day didn’t get any better for Dulko and Zheng, who were then beaten by Chan and Niculescu in the doubles. Time to head to Melbourne, methinks.
