Rodionova survives stomach cramps to advance to Commonwealth Games quarterfinals

Anastasia Rodionova, the top seed in women's singles, doubles and mixed doubles at the Commonwealth Games, had some trouble with stomach cramps in the second round of singles play, but easily defeated Larikah Russell, 6-1, 6-3. Sania Mirza, Olivia Rogowska, Marina Erakovic and Sally Peers also advanced to the quarterfinals, but Katie O'Brien--struggling with a shoulder injury and hardly able to practice--did not. Mirza has also reached the women's doubles quarterfinals.

Heather Watson won her second round match and will play Rodionova in the quarterfinals.

Sarah Borwell and her partner defeated Watson and her partner in mixed doubles.
