Sigh. Oh well.
Top seed Agnez Szavay lost yesterday to Pauline Parmentier in the quarterfinals of Bad Gastein. Third seed Caroline Wozniaki was also upset by Mariya Koryttseva. Looks like Caro will have to wait a while to get her first title.
In other news, Marion Bartoli is looking fitter than when I saw at Indian Wells. That fitness showed in her easy win over A Chak at Stanford last night. Serena easily dispatched Peppermint Patty Schnyder as well. I'm looking forward to a Bartoli/ReRe final.
On the men's side, all four top seeds (Blake, Simon, Querrey, Tursonov) have made the semis in Indianapolis. I'm watching the Querrey/Simon semi right now and I must say that Gilles Simon may be the most unknown top 25 player on the men's side. I have never seen this dude play and he reminds me of JJ. He has a crappy serve, runs everything down, and has no kill shot.
