Defending champion out of Korea Open

Defending champion Kimiko Date Krumm was defeated today in the quarterfinals of the Korea Open. 8th seed Agnes Szavay's 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 victory puts her into the semifinals. Also advancing were top seed Nadia Petrova, Klara Zakopalova and 5th seed Alisa Kleybanova, who defeated Kirsten Flipkens, wild card Dinara Safina and Ekaterina Makarova, respectively. Date Krumm and her partner, Ayumi Morita, also lost their semifinal doubles match.

In Tashkent, Elena Vesnina and Alla Kudryavtseva will face each other in the final. Vesnina has appeared in three tour finals, but has never won a title. This will be Kudryavtseva's second tour final.

Alla Kudryavtseva was in the Guangzhou final last week so this will be her second final. She was beaten by Groth last week.
