Top seed Safina advances to quarterfinals in s'Hertogenbosch

Number 1 seed Dinara Safina--who will also be the top seed at Wimbledon--enjoyed a straight sets win today over Yaroslava Shvedova at the Ordina Open. She will be joined in the quarterfinals by Francesca Schiavone, 6th seed Daniela Hantuchova, and Olga Govortsova. The latter three had wins over Alona Bondarenko, Kateryna Bondarenko and Nathalie Dechy, respectively.

Safina didn't do as well in doubles, however. She and partner Sorana Cirstea were defeated in the quarterfinals by the Italian team of Sara Errani and Flavia Pennetta.
