Another big upset--this one overlooked

With all the surprises going on in the singles draw, I suppose it makes an unfortunate kind of sense that a huge third round upset in doubles has been all but ignored. Yesterday, top seeds Hsieh Su-Wei and Barbora Strycova were defeated in straight sets (6-4, 7-5) by 14th seeds Alexa Guarachi and Desirae Krawczyk. 

2nd seeds Timea Babos and Kiki Mladenovic not only won their third round match--as of today, they have advanced to the semifinals with a victory over Marta Kostyuk and Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Babos and Mladenovic are the defending champions.
