The tournament's first major upset occurred last night, too, as the 3rd-seeded Chan sisters were defeated in the first round of doubles by Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke. The veteran team won the match 1-6, 7-6, 10-6.
And yesterday featured another long, tense contest--this time, between 2011 runner-up Lucie Safarova and Varvara Lepchenko. Safarova defeated Lepchenko 7-5, 6-7, 6-3.
For Jankovic's many fans, there's good news: She and partner Andrea Petkovic will play doubles together today against the Czech team of Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova. This alone is worth the price of admission to the grounds.
