Alona wins the battle of the Bondarenkos

Alona Bondarenko
Ljubicic lost, Groth won, Starace lost, Melzer lost, Isner won, Hewitt won and Chardy lost. Vaidisova lost, Cirstea won, Cibulkova won, Petrova won and Vesnina beat Mayr.

Alona beat Kateryna Bondarenko in Ponte Vedra Beach as expected but it took three sets and a comeback by Alona. Alona decided not to call her coach for a chat when she couldn’t get her game going because it would have been unfair on her sister who couldn’t call her coach. That’s because Kateryna’s coach was sister Alona – her opponent. So although Alona thought about getting her coach / boyfriend / hitting partner in for a chat to help her at 4-1 down in the first, she decided against it since there was no way Kateryna was going to get any coaching help. Alona went on to win anyway.

The Bondarenko sisters get on fine together as long as there's no argument over using the toilet.
