Bartoli upset by Yakimova in Miami

Qualifier Anastasiya Yakimova, number 84 in the world, broke 12th seed Marion Bartoli six times today in Miami, and advanced to the third round of the Sony Ericsson Open. Yakimova, playing as a qualifier, made it to the second round of the BNP Paribas Open this month. She was defeated by Ana Ivanovic. Yakimova's 6-4, 6-3 defeat of Bartoli sets her up to play Alisa Kleybanova in the third round.

Also upset today was 27th (still injured) seed Sybille Bammer, who fell to Samantha Stosur in straight sets, and 28th seed Alona Bondarenko, who lost in straight sets to Nicole Vaidisova. Bondarenko won one game.
