10 aces to 9 in 2 sets of a WTA match!…gotta be a record.

Jelena Dokic set up a quarter-final showdown with Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters after continuing her excellent form at the GDF Suez Open in Paris with victory over Nadia Petrova. Qualifier Dokic built on her shock win over Lucie Safarova by disposing of Petrova 6-4 7-6 (7/4) and setting up her clash with Clijsters, who will reclaim the world number one position if she wins.

American Bethanie Mattek-Sands also made the last eight after a 7-5 6-3 win over French lucky loser Stephanie Cohen-Aloro, who stepped in following the withdrawal of Maria Sharapova with a throat infection. Fourth seed and former Wimbledon semi-finalist Petra Kvitova beat Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-4 6-7 (8/10) 7-6 (11/9) in a marathon tussle lasting three hours and 14 minutes. There were also wins for sixth seed Andrea Petkovic, who beat Slovak qualifier Kristina Kocova 6-4 6-2, and seventh seed Yanina Wickmayer, a 6-1 6-3 victor over Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic.
