Big Names Dropping Like Flies

First of all sorry I didn't do a post for yesterdays results, I had one or two internet issues but I'm up and running again now. The big news from Day 5 was the Maria Sharapova was sent packing by pocket rocket know as Jie Zheng, 6-3 2-6 6-3 the score. Its been quite an up and down season for Maria so far, with a first round loss in Australia and a title in Memphis before coming here. The 2nd, 4th and 5th seeds, Caroline Wozniaki, Elena Dementieva and Agnieszka Radwanska all made it through to the last 16 with few problems.

On to Day 6 where there were upsets aplenty. Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez (seriously why does she need so many names) beat down Victoria Azarenka in straight sets 7-6 6-2. Number 9 seed Flavia Pennetta lost to in form player Shahar Peer in three sets while Alisa Kleybanova squeezed past US Open champ Kim Clijsters in a third set tiebreak. Jelena Jankovic almost joined those three at the airport but battled her way to a 2-6 7-6 6-4 victory over Sara Errani.

The draw has opened up nicely and everyone will be back on court tomorrow when the quarterfinalists will be decided.
