Alize Cornet won in Linz

Alize Cornet
Mirza’s finally woken up for 2009, Schiavone took a bagel from Latisha Chan before progressing, and Bartoli thrashed the local wildcard.

Cornet gesticulated wildly, argued with herself and missed many easy shots but still won – how bad do you feel Barrois? Benesova lost to Kvitova again and the Radwanska sisters can meet in the next round if they can get past Cornet (Aga) and Safarova (Urszula). You know you want it to happen.

(We also want an all Woz QF in Osaka which will happen if when Wozniacki beats O'Brien.)

Jelena Dokic continued her roll in Joue-Les-Tours and has apparently asked for a wildcard for Moscow. Tickets for the Dokic express please.

Hewitt fell apart losing six straight games and the match to Monfils, Lopez took down Ferrer, Robredo’s still winning, Verdasco lost, del Potro’s hurt – no doubt caused by the too long season which he just had a month off – Blake took another set off Rafa before inevitably succumbing and Djokovic and Simon both strolled.

The great Marat Safin lost in Shanghai and afterwards beat up his conquer Berdych and then Andy Roddick for good measure. Berdych was feigning injury and needs to grow up and Roddick has to think a little bit with his brains. Roddick opposed Safin’s attempts to shorten the season in 2004 and has now called on the ATP to do so which angered Safin. Safin’s shortened season will of course end at the Paris Masters.

Ivo Minar got banned for eight months. I'm still not sure which Minar he is.

Yahoo blog takes another swipe at the foot-fault lineswomen.
