Lucky loser Sam Stosur defeated third seed Vera Zvonareva, 6-3, 6-2 in Stanford tonight. Stosur hit ten aces in her winning match.

Meanwhile, Sybille Bammer, whose fortunes have not been too good this season, became the latest victim of the suddenly successful Alexsandra Wozniak,who defeated her 6-4, 7-5.

Number 5 seed Patty Schnyder had to work to defeat Alisa Kleybanova, 7-6, 6-4, and number 6 seed Marion Bartoli had her work cut out, too. She defeated Anne Keothavong, 6-3, 1-6, 7-5.

Interesting tournament for both Wozniak and Stosur.

Wozniak defeats Stosur in qualifying, but then the Australian makes it into the draw as a lucky loser when Davenport pulls out. Both end up stringing together wins in the main draw... and now face each other again in the QF. Stosur gets a second chance, while Wozniak gets that "why-won't-you-stay-dead?" sort of feeling in the pit of her stomach. :)
