Black and Huber out of Indian Wells

At the beginning of play in Indian Wells, the tour promoted Cara Black and Liezel Huber as "the ones to beat." Alisa Kleybanova and Monica Niculescu took that seriously, defeating the top seeds 7-5, 7-6 yesterday in the second round.

Also of interest was the defeat of the unseeded, but formerly highly ranked, team of Yan Zi and Zheng Jie. The winners of their second match were 7th seeds Maria Kirilenko and Flavia Pennetta (6-7, 6-4, 10-6).
