Dulko and Radwanska do a 3rd set thriller

How frustrating is it to have to leave the house when someone is serving at 5-6 in the 3rd set? Pretty frustrating, but that's what happened to me today. The third set between Gisela Dulko and Radwanska was on fire, with constant breaks, break-backs and games lingering at deuce. In the end, Dulko saved three match points on her own serve, forced Radwanska to serve it out, then broke her again. It ended in a tiebreak, which Radwanska won handily, 7-1, dashing my hopes that Dulko would move on to the next round. What a fight, though!

Radwanska def. Dulko, 6-2, 1-6, 7-6

Another hot young player, CarolineWozniacki, did not fare as well: She was defeated by Alona Bondarenko, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. And, of course, Victoria Azarenka fell to Dominka Cibulkova. Meanwhile, Alize Cornet took out Sybille Bammer, who has been having some back problems lately.
