Depending on how the quarterfinals go tomorrow, the Bondarenko sisters may wind up playing each other in the semifinals, an event that would most certainly be a treat for spectators. Alona and Kateryna Bondarenko are two of the three seeds remaining--Nicole Vaidisova is the other.
Melanie South is to be commended. She defeated (in addition to wild card Anna Fitzpatrick) both 4th seed Sybille Bammer and 17th seed Aiko Nakamura to get to the quarterfinals, in which she will play Yanina Wickmayer. Sad though it may be, it is unusual to see a British player do this well.
