Top seed knocked out of MPS Group Championships

Number 1 seed Nadia Petrova lost her semifinal match in Ponte Vedra Beach today. She was defeated by Aleksandra Wozniak, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. Wozniack will meet--of all people--Caroline Wozniacki, in the final. Wozniacki had to fight her way to the end of her semifinal match against the newly dangerous Elena Vesnina, in a contest that went on over two and a half hours. Wozniacki won it 2-6, 6-3, 7-6.

Meanwhile, in Marbella, Spain, 2nd seed Jelena Jankovic defeated Anabel Medina Garrigues, 7-5, 6-2 in the semifinals, and Carla Suarez Navarro defeated Sorana Cirstea, 6-2, 6-7, 6-2.
