Schnyder out of Bali

It's not pretty to be up 3-0 in the third set, have a game point to get up 4-0, and then lose the match, but Patty Schnyder did just that today against Sorana Cirstea at the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic in Bali. Cirstea had the lead in the second set, then lost it, but managed to squeeze out a 6-2, 5-7, 7-5 victory. It was the first top-20 win for the 137th-ranked Cirstea, who has gotten herself noticed lately.

Schnyder wasn't alone in getting upset. Anabel Medina Garrigues also had a third set lead, but lost her match against Sara Errani in their 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 match, which went on for almost three hours.
