There was big second round doubles action today in Flushing Meadows. The American team of Carly Gullickson and Alexa Glatch upset 7th seeds Hsieh Su-Wei and Peng Shuai, 7-5, 6-3, and 14th seeds Sania Mirza and Francesca Schiavone were broken 6-2, 1-6, 7-5--after saving four match points--by Gisela Dulko and Shahar Peer.
Also upset were 16th seeds Victoria Azarenka and Vera Zvonareva. They were defeated 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 by Sorana Cirstea and Caroline Wozniacki.
Ipek Senoglu and Yaroslava Shvedova took at set off of 5th seeds Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama, but the seeded team won, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. It should be noted that Shvedova, who is still alive in the singles draw, had to call for a trainer for what appeared to be a thigh strain.
