Errani and Zheng win tough matches in Hobart

Two matches stood out today in Moorilla Hobart International competition. Melanie Oudin and Sara Errani were on the court for close to three hours, breaking each other 9 times, until Errani emerged the winner, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

Going for 2 1/2 hours were Zheng Jie and Kaia Kanepi, who appears to be returning to her 2008 form. Zheng defeated Kanepi 4-6, 6-3, 7-6, after 12 breaks of serve. Kanepi hit 7 aces and committed 9 double faults.

The often-injured and unpredictable Tamira Paszek defeated Roberta Vinci 6-4, 6-3, and Alla Kudryavtseva defeated Ekaterina Makarova 6-0, 6-0.
