First it was number 2 seed Agnieszka Radwanska who, today, lost her chance to go to the Generali Ladies Linz final: Radwanska was defeated 6-3, 6-2 by Petra Kvitova. Then top seed Flavia Pennetta was defeated 7-6, 6-3 by Yanina Wickmayer.
Things didn't go as planned in Osaka, either, with top seed Caroline Wozniacki getting upset by 3rd seed Samantha Stosur, 6-0, 4-6, 6-4. Stosur hit twelve aces, and had 74 and 55 first and second serve win percentages.
Stosur will play 4th seed Francesca Schiavone in the final. Schiavone defeated Sania Mirza 6-2, 6-1.
