Zvonareva out of Dubai competition

Today was a big day in Dubai. Alisa Kleybanova upset 2nd seed Vera Zvonareva, Jelena Jankovic defeated Kaia Kanepi, Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated Francesca Schiavone (Schiavone again saved six match points), and--not surprisingly--Agnieszka Radwanska defeated Marion Bartoli. Top seed Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the quarterfinals, and Yanina Wickmayer, who worked so hard to upset Li Na, lost to Shahar Peer. Sam Stosur (def. Patty Schnyder) and Flavia Pennetta (def. Victoria Azarenka) also advanced to the quarterfinals.

Wozniacki will play Peer in the next round. If Wozniacki wins, she will again take over the number 1 ranking.

In Memphis, 6th seed Rebecca Marino hit fourteen aces in her quarterfinal match, and defeated Coco Vandeweghe. This is the first time that Marino has been seeded in a tournament. She will play Evgeniya Rodina in the semifinals.
