Sybille Bammer of Austria(a Mum on tour with her daughter) recorded her most significant victory to date with a surprising win over Serena Williams 7-5, 6-4. Serena joins her sister Venus in the losers circle as she also lost today to Flavia Pennetta.
In other matches Daniella Hantuchova defeated Vera Zvonareva 7-6, 0-6, 7-6. Elena Dememtieva defeated Cirstea 6-4, 6-4, and Wozniacki advanced when Melinda Czink retired.
With the Williams sisters, Kuznetsova and Zvonareva all gone, the field is wide open for someone to step up and win. Will it be Kim Clijsters?
