An interesting day in Doha

Ana Ivanovic sprained her ankle, Maria Sharapova struggled with a suddenly savvy Galina Voskoboeva, Dominika Cibulkova got the best of Patty Schnyder, and Tammy Tunasugarn--of all people--defeated Amelie Mauresmo. Ai Sugiyama continued her nice run (she took out Agnes Szavay yesterday) with a defeat of talented countrywoman Ayumi Morita, and Anabel Medina Garrigues beat Maria Kirilenko.

Ivanovic def. Govortsova, 6-3, 6-1
Sharapova def. Voskobeva, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1
Cibulkova def. Schnyer, 6-3, 6-4
Tunasugarn def. Mauresmo, 7-6, 7-5
Sugiyama def. Morita, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0
Medina Garrigues def. Kirilenko, 2-6, 7-5, 6-1

And to round out the day's oddities--after being up 5-1 in the second set, Virginie Razzano lost to Shahar Peer, 6-1, 7-6.
