Shvedova upset in Birmingham

6th seed Yaroslava Shvedova lost her second round match today at the AEGON Classic in Birmingham. She was defeated 6-4, 6-4 by qualifier Sesil Karatantcheva. Also going out in the second round were 8th seed Andrea Petkovic and 16th seed Vania King.

In the first round, 12th seed Elena Baltacha retired with a g.i. illness. Baltacha suffered heat illness last week in Nottingham, where she won the tournament and had to play her quarterfinal and semifinal matches on the same day; she has been feeling a bit weak ever since.

It rained again today in Birmingham, and several matches had to be suspended.

Diane, did you hear that Amelie Mauresmo is now coaching Michael Llodra through the grass season? I have been trying to find a link to this but I saw it on twitter sometime ago.

I didn't hear that, but it's true. Here is the Tennis.com story, referring to the original story in L'Equipe: http://tinyurl.com/2vqj4lt
