Busy day in Birmingham

Several players did double duty today, as participants in the AEGON Classic played catch-up from the many rain delays.

Top seed Zheng Jie defeated Melanie South in the second round, but then was upset, 7-6, 6-4, in the third round by Magdalena Rybarikova. Also upset in the third round was 3rd seed Aleksandra Wozniak, who was defeated by Melinda Czink, 6-7, 7-5, 7-5. The next upset--also in the third round--was of 5th seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who was defeated in three sets by Sania Mirza. And finally, 7th seed Francesca Schiavone was defeated by Maria Sharapova.
