Poor Jelena Dokic

Jelena DokicHow close was Fed to losing to Acasuso? but it was a great fightback and you sense Acasuso lost interest at the end, Chardy beat Bolelli, Rochus took out his second straight French veteran, Del Potro rolled over Troicki, Jankovic destroyed Rybarikova drop-shotting antics and all, Venus picked her game up to beat Safarova, Cornet went down in tears to Cirstea and Dokic retired against Dementieva.

Poor Jelena Dokic. Up a set and a break against Elena the (almost) Great Dementieva, she broke down with a back injury and couldn’t continue though she bravely tried to battle on for two games where she was unable to run. She then broke down in tears and was consoled by the wonderful Dementieva (yes, it’s true, Dementieva is simply too nice to win at the highest level). Rest up and play like a hurricane at Wimbledon, Jelena.

Jelena Dokic and Elena DementievaMarion Bartoli had a whinge after losing against Garbin: “the court was really heavy. The balls were heavy. My serve was not okay at all. I couldn't hit the balls correctly, either. ...the conditions that were really not good. It was so cold, freezing out there. The balls were stuck on the strings of the racquet, so that's why there were many break points, and the ball was too slow.” etc, oh and Garbin’s Italian...

Groth won, Stosur won, Rogowska has now lost to both Bondarenkos in her three match career, Haas is looking good, Roddick is still alive, Tsonga put out the dangerous Monaco, Glatch’s great adventure is over, Wozniacki took her foot off the pedal several times but still won comfortably, AMG and VRP are out and Radwanska the Greater is doing it easy. Both Serbs and both Williams sisters still surviving despite churning rumours of their alleged frailty.

Matches to watch:
Rezai vs Larcher de Brito – brave young guns
Sharapova vs Shvedova – the new tough Moody Maria against a qualifier
Benesova vs Ivanovic – the struggling Ivanovic represents an opportunity for Iveta
Venus vs Szavay – bye bye Venus?
Kohlschreiber vs Ferrero – two sets all
Nadal vs Hewitt – it’s the final for Hewitt, can he catch the Toro unawares?
Stepanek vs Cilic – opportunity for Cilic but the Worm’s in form
Davydenko vs Wawrinka – neither of these players’ name is one you want to see in your draw
Hanescu vs Simon – another French upset?
Murray vs Tipsarevic – bye bye Andy
