Chakvetadze advances to quarterfinals in Slovenia

Anna Chakvetadze upset 4th seed Sara Errani today in the second round of the Slovenia Open, after defeating Ekaterina Makarova in the first round. Palona Hercog defeated wild card Katarina Srebotnik, and Stephanie Voegele defeated wild card Tamira Paszek.

In Bad Gastein, Simona Halep retired toward the end of her second round match because of a right shoulder injury.

What happened to Chakvetadze? It seems she's slipped off the tennis radar recently.

She slipped off some time ago, after the trauma she went through when she and her father were burglarized and attacked. She's just never been the same since. I miss having her in the top 20; I really like watching her play.

Good for Anna! Wish she could consistently put two wins together but more than that, 3 or 4. This should be a boost to her confidence. She was an interesting player who I also enjoyed watching.
