Flipkens and Errani produce Hobart upsets

Qualifier Kirsten Flipkens defeated Hobart 6th seed Aleksandra Wozniak today, 7-5, 6-2 in the second round of the Moorilla Hobart International. Also going out was 3rd seed Kateryna Bondarenko, who lost a very close match to Sara Errani. Bondarenko was a step behind for much of the match, yet she continually caught up. In the end, though, Errani was able to post a 7-6 (8), 6-4 score.

Also advancing in the second round were 5th seed Carla Suarez Navarro (def. wild card Alicia Molik) and 2nd seed Shahar Peer (def. Jelena Dokic).

In doubles quarterfinals, Errani and partner Roberta Vinci upset 2nd seeds Sania Mirza and Virginia Ruano Pascual, 6-3, 7-5.
