Lisicki and Cirstea to play in Tashkent final
Magdelena Rybarikova did not get the birthday present she would have liked today. She had to retire in her semifinal match in Tashkent against Sorana Cirstea. Rybarikova has been ill all week, and I assume her retirement occurred because of her illness. And on her twentieth birthday--too bad. Cirstea will play Sabine Lisicki in the final. Lisicki defeated Peng Shuai, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4.
