Radwanska retires in New Haven

Top seed Agnieszka Radwanska, whose shoulder injury came back to haunt her a couple of weeks ago, retired today in New Haven against Olga Govortsova. Govortsova won the first set 6-0, and when she was ahead 2-1 in the second, her opponent retired. The U.S. Open begins in less than a week, which doesn't bode well for Radwansksa. On the other hand, she has done extremely well before while injured---and that includes her 2011 back-to-back Asian wins--so we'll just have to wait and see.

Sloane Stephens won nine games in a row against Marion Bartoli, putting her ahead 3-0 in the third set, but she lost. Bartoli defeated her 6-1, 0-6, 6-3.

In Dallas, 2nd seed Jelena Jankovic has made it to the third round, having defeated both Yaroslava Shvedova and Arantxa Rus.
