I was just watching the Wozniacki match. Lisicki plays with style & won the first set comfortably. Has CW got the will to win the second?

Whoa! Lisicki took the 1st set so easily I turned away. Now it's Wozniacki up 4-1 in the second.

Suarez-Errani are getting into some long rallies. 1-1 now Suarez up 1-0 sets.

CW won the 2nd set 6-3. Lisicki played some excellent tennis in the 9th game & took it to several deuces & break points.  CW did well to stay focused.

And they play on. Errani has not been able to hold serve but she faces an early exit if she can't this time. Sara serving 4-5

#7 seed is out! Sara made it to the QF in 2012  :(

An upset on paper, but Suarez Navarro is a top player when she's healthy. And she was a QF here in 2009 taking out Venus along the way.
