WTA: Wednesday’s Results, Thursday’s OOP

Posted by gauloises1 on February 11, 2010

So things are starting to get pretty interesting in Paris. While top seeds Elena Dementieva and Flavia Pennetta were untroubled by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Alisa Kleybanova, third seed Yanina Wickmayer was upset by Petra Martic, a largely unknown Croat.

I’m not entirely surprised, as Wicky has played a serious lot of tennis recently and could do with at least a couple of days before Dubai. But it’s a seriously big win for Martic, who is hurriedly being publicised by the WTA:

In Pattaya City, Licky was sadly upset by Tamarine Tanasugarn, 75 in the third. Seeds 6-8 also fell, Julia Goerges getting destroyed by Sesil Karantcheva, Sania Mirza losing a three-setter to Tatjana Malek, and Kimiko Date-Krumm forced to retire due to an ankle injury.

Not a great start to the year for Licky …
