Wozniacki loses Doha match to Stosur

Sam Stosur, seeded 6th at the WTA Championships in Doha, defeated 1st seed Caroline Wozniacki 6-4,0 6-3 today. Wozniacki now has a 1-1 record in the Championships, and Stosur has a 2-0 record.

2nd seed Vera Zvonareva defeated 8th seed Victoria Azarenka 7-6, 6-4 today in a match in which Azarenka made too many unforced errors. Zvonareva is now 2-0 in Doha.

In today's other match, 3rd seed Kim Clijsters, playing her first Doha match, defeated 6th seed Jelena Jankovic. Jankovic, who is now 0-2 in the competition, has been sick for over a week, and is reported to have passed out in the locker room after yesterday evening's match against Vera Zvonareva.

Tomorrow, maroon group members Sam Stosur and Elena Dementieva will compete, as will Caroline Wozniacki and Francesca Schiavone. In the white group, Kim Clijsters will play Victoria Azarenka.

I enjoyed watching both Stosur matches. She seemed so determined and on her game. Sometimes it seemed as though Wozniacki didn't know what to do with Sam's shots.

I didn't get to watch it (I'm on vacation, and am limiting my tennis viewing), but I saw the highlights. When Stosur is on, she is aggressive and successful. It seems that, too many times, she holds back.

I enjoyed both, too. I thought Stosur looked great today. Seems like the TC talking heads were right - Wozniacki appeared overwhelmed by Stosur's power. It was for the most part an interesting, fun match to watch. I wish the second set had been tighter, that's all.
