Benesova knocks out top seed two days in a row

Yesterday, Iveta Benesova stunned Montreal spectators by taking out Rogers Cup top seed Jelena Jankovic. She liked the experience so much, she repeated it today. She and partner Barbora Zahlavova Strycova upset top doubles seeds Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova 7-6, 1-6, 11-9.

Benesova's next opponent in singles will be the winner of the 2nd round match between lucky loser Kimiko Date Krumm and 17th seed Marion Bartoli. Benesova and Zahlavova Strycova will face Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yan Zi.
