Canada Flying the Flag at WTA Memphis.

Posted by gauloises1 on February 18, 2011

A slightly disappointing end to Great Britain’s Heather Watson’s campaign in the WTA Memphis tournament today, after she lost in straight sets to Evgeniya Rodina. Still, it was Our Heather’s second quarterfinal in 2011 – as a qualifier, no less – so we won’t bemoan the loss too much. Anne Keothavong also lost to Magdalena Rybarikova the other day.

So long and farewell, you old British ladies.

Memphis in general has been an utter seed massacre, with only one surviving; sixth seed, the very tall, hard-hitting, unassuming female Delpo Rebecca Marino, who beat Coco Vanderweghe in the quarterfinals. She’ll face Rodina tomorrow, with Rybarikova vs. Hradecka to determine who’ll await the winner. Go Rebecca.

Singles – Quarterfinals
(6) Rebecca Marino (CAN) d. Coco Vandeweghe (USA) 61 76(6)
Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) d. (Q) Heather Watson (GBR) 63 64
Lucie Hradecka (CZE) d. Ksenia Pervak (RUS) 64 63
Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) d. (Q) Alexa Glatch (USA) 63 62

Doubles – Quarterfinals
Pervak/Senoglu (RUS/TUR) d. (1) Voracova/Zahlavova Strycova (CZE/CZE) 60 63
(4) Hlavackova/Hradecka (CZE/CZE) d. (WC) Hampton/Oudin (USA/USA) 61 61
