Simona Halep wins in St Raphael

Simona HalepChaky’s back but didn’t last long in Moscow thanks to Bondarenko the Elder. Alona’s younger sister now has a higher ranking then her which should serve to spur her on. Kateryna’s playing in Luxembourg this week. The Radwanska sisters, Agnieszka and Uszula have also split up this week.

Also in Moscow, Petrova knocked over Buchina (who was given the Wildcard instead of Dokic), Domi showed her lack of practice and Govortsova took care of the last WC. The men are playing too in Moscow but you wouldn’t know it yet. The only two top names are Davy and Safin and they play each other in the first.

In Luxembourg AMG, CSN and Lisicki took care of business. Brit hopeful Robson lost in qualifying.

Simona Halep rebounded from her 1 and 0 thrashing by Dokic last week to beat Kerber in St Raphael. Good win against a top 100 player. Maybe the surgery is helping her now.

Rumours that Peer will not be granted a visa for the end of year tournament in Bali that she has qualified for. No doubt the WTA is already frantically working on this ie drafting their announcement to spin this for the best.

Wickmayer is a dark horse for the Aus Open according to Wertheim – there goes her chances then...
