Parmentier out in Forest Hills
Pauline Parmentier, the top seed at the Forest Hills Tennis Classic, is out of the competition. She was defeated by Peng Shuai, 6-3, 6-2. I was a bit surprised to find that Jamea Jackson had defeated Marina Erakovic, 7-6, 7-5. Also winning was Carla Suarez Navarro, who defeated Timea Backsinszky. Finally, Lucie Safarova defeated Akgul Amanmuradova.
