Angela Haynes pulls off upset in first round

I didn't pay any attention to the Pacific Life Open first round match between the talented Sara Errani and Angela Haynes; I just assumed Errani would move on. Surprise! Haynes beat her, 7-5, 6-2. I didn't see that one coming.

Zheng Jie beat down Emelie Loit, 6-0, 6-1, and Tsvetana Pironkova defeated Marta Domachowska, 6-4, 6-2. This also surprised me. Though Pironkova can sometimes put in a good performance, I thought the resurgent veteran would do better.

Also out is Nathalie Dechy, defeated by Mariya Koryttseva, 6-1, 6-4.
