Top 3 seeds out in Los Angeles doubles competition

We are down to the semifinals at the Los Angeles Women's Tennis Championships, and only one seeded team--Hsieh Su-Wei and Peng Shuai--remain in competition. Hsieh and Peng are seeded 4th.

3rd seeds Flavia Pennetta and Lisa Raymond lost in the first round. In the quarterfinals, top seeds Sam Stosur and Rennae Stubbs were eliminated, as were 2nd seeds Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama.

In the semifinals, Hsieh and Peng will play Maria Kirilenko and Agnieszka Radwanska, the team who defeated Stosur and Stubbs. In the other semifinal contest, Vania King and Monica Niculescu--who got a walkover from the quarterfinals--will play Chuang Chia-Jung and Yan Zi, who defeated Hantuchova and Sugiyama.
