Perhaps she was tired after winning in Fes. Perhaps Anna Chakvetadze found some of her old, great form. For whatever reason, 15th seed Medina Garrigues was defeated today in straight sets by Chakvetadze.
There were no other upsets in Rome today, though one might take pause at the 6-1, 6-0 scoreline of the Agnieszka Radwanska-Alona Bondarenko match. 10th seeded Radwanska did the job in under 50 minutes.
