Serena ousted by Bammer! Oh Bammer!

bammer (3)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?

Schiavone then took a 3-1 lead in tiebreaker before Bammer seized control.

bammerSybille Bammer has reached the final eight at Indian Wells and will take on defending champion Ana Ivanovic for a berth in the semi finals. Bammer is the only Mummy currently playing on the tour, and her daughter Tina is often in the stands watching her Mum play.

During 2001 Bammer took a break from tennis to give birth to her daughter Tina. Her boyfriend Christophe took a break from his career to take care of Tina, who is a frequent regular in the crowd. Bammer said of her daughter, “She is always telling other people to be quiet because Mummy is concentrating.” Now that Tina is seven and in school, she stays home with Daddy while Mum is on tour. She arranges her schedule so as not to be away for any longer than a month at a time.

Ivanovic will need to bring her ‘A’ game to defeat Bammer, who can upset most players with her canny mixture of unconventional shots. She is highly motivated to do well, and is aware that there are hundreds of little eyes watching her every stroke as Tina and her school friends focus on the match.
