Bagels in Doha

There was some bagel distribution in Doha today, too. Patty Schnyder beat Tamira Paszek, 6-4, 6-0; there is reason to believe that Paszek was not feeling well, which would account for her poor showing in the second set. Former top 10 player Ai Sugiyama defeated Agnes Szavay, 7-6, 6-0, and--though she won the match--Li Na also had a no-game set against Elena Likhovtseva, whom she defeated, 6-1, 0-6, 6-4.

Also, Sania Mirza retired today during her Qatar Total Open first round match against Olga Govorsova. Mirza was cramping, and finally had to stop playing. Govortsova def. Mirza, 4-6, 7-6, 3-2

And of note: Caroline Wozniacki defeated Marion Bartoli, 6-2, 6-3, in the first round.
