Azarenka upsets Dementieva in Stuttgart quarterfinals
I saw Victoria Azarenka play Elena Dementieva in Charleston this year, and it was a spirited and high-quality match. Dementieva won that one, 6-4, 7-5. Last year, on the Moscow indoor surface, Dementieva defeated Azarenka in the quarterfinals. Today, Azarenka turned it around in Stuttgart, defeating Dementieva, 7-6, 3-6, 6-1. She will play a resurgent Nadia Petrova in the semifinals, and that should be a good match.
