Casablanca et al: Wednesday’s Results, Thursday’s OOP

Posted by gauloises1 on April 8, 2010

Rain hit Houston yesterday, postponing Lleyton Hewitt’s first match back from hip surgery but fortunately not interfering with two extremely WTF matches, one being Nicolas Massu’s agonising three-set victory over Ryan Sweeting and the other being Chela v Schwank … on which more later. In Marbella, Tatjana Malek upset new top-20 lady Aravane Rezai and Kim Clijsters won her first match on clay since the Mumback. And in Ponte Vedra Beach, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova made her fourth quarter-final of 2010. Check out little miss consistency.
