Dokic reaches semifinals of Malaysian Open

Jelena Dokic upset 8th seed Bojana Jovanovski today in straight sets to reach the semifinals of the Malaysian Open. Also going out was 2nd seed Marion Bartoli, who lost in straight sets to 5th seed Lucie Safarova. The other semifinalists are Michaella Krajicek (def. Anne Kremer) and Jarmila Groth (def. 6th seed Ayumi Morita). Groth has a wild card and is also seeded fourth.

Meanwhile, in Monterrey, top seed Jelena Jankovic has advanced to the quarterfinals, as has Gisela Dulko, who has now won seven straight matches in Mexico.

Go, Jarka!!! Okay, just had to get that off of my chest. Love her game, and I hope from her recent results (here and in Fed Cup) that she's developed a Plan B for herself, since when Plan A (laser-strike tennis) goes off, she has often seemed at a loss. And loses ;).

(go, Jarka!)

Kvitova got past that; perhaps Groth will, too. I hope so.
