Budapest Grand Prix
Singles - Second Round: (1) Roberta Vinci def. (WC) Maria Joao Koehler 6-2 6-0
That should do it: Roberta Vinci is back in the Top Twenty.
Singles - Second Round: (Q) Karin Knapp def. (2) Maria Kirilenko 1-6 6-1 7-5
Maria Kirilenko had already pulled out of the doubles with an injury, so this was somewhat expected. But it costs her her chance to rise above #18.
Singles - Second Round: Silvia Soler-Espinosa def. (3) Anabel Medina Garrigues 3-6 6-3 7-5
Unlike the preceding, this was not expected at all. This costs Anabel Medina Garrigues the chance to clinch a return to the Top Thirty, although it still looks fairly likely.
Singles - Second Round: (4) Petra Cetkovska def. (Q) Heather Watson 6-3 6-1
Heather Watson will remain below #100. She'll get a wildcard into Wimbledon if she needs it, but Roland Garros doesn't appear to be on the calendar.
Singles - Second Round: Galina Voskoboeva def. (5) Zheng Jie 6-4 6-1
Cross Zheng Jie out of the contest for the Top Thirty. But Galina Voskoboeva is up to around #42; another win would likely make her Top Forty.
Singles - Second Round: (6) Kaia Kanepi def. Vania King 6-3 6-4
Vania King loses a bunch of points and will fall to around #58.
Singles - Second Round: (7) Nadia Petrova def. Jarmila Gajdosova 7-6(7-2), retired (Left Ankle Injury)
Jarmila Gajdosova loses even more points than King; she appears bound out of the Top Sixty.
Singles - Second Round: Carla Suarez Navarro def. (9) Polona Hercog 6-4 3-0, retired (Right Foot Injury)
We had three retirements on this day, plus one other player who probably should have. What a day....
Doubles - Quarterfinal: (2) Mirza/Rodionova def. Lee-Waters/Moulton-Levy 6-0 6-4
Doubles - Quarterfinal: (3) Shvedova/Voskoboeva def. Bratchikova/Jurak 7-5 6-3
