The WTA Represents

by Savannah

It's late. Or early depending on your perspective. Roger vs Marat is taking place as I type this. Baghdatis is about to play Mardy Fish.

Meh. There were two great WTA matches played tonight. Well, entertaining might be a better word. There were 80+ ufe's between Alisa Kleybanova of Russia and Ana Ivanovic so we're not talking pristine tennis here but it was a great match to watch. Ivanovic was showing emotion. Kleybanova was determined to make it to the round of sixteen and join the conversation the Russian women are having with the tennis world. In the end it was Kleybanova who fell to the court in joy.

Meanwhile Jelena Dokic continued her march towards the elite eight riding the support of the crowd and overcoming a shaky start to overcome Caroline Wozniacki.

Dokic will meet Kleybanova in the next round. I'm going to bed. Here are some pictures to keep you company.

You may ask yourself why there's a random picture of Marat Safin at the top of this post. As they say, if you don't know act like you do.
