I think it is true. More and more sources say so.

Go Elena in doubles with Maggie.

Two BUL's in the quarters, that must have been a long time ago. I don't think Bacheva and Maleeva achieved that at one event.

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Sesil & Patty can be a pretty good matchup.... coz' they both have the same bitchy personality!!!! Hehe~~~ Anyway, gamewise... should be a good match, but I think Patty's extreme top spin shots and her lefty serves will cause some problems for Sesil!!!

I think Maggie has been in the quarters at the same time with both her sisters at some point but can't pinpoint when that was.

How she can lose to a 15 year old who only runs well and has a good backhand

Probably back to her inconsisent form

Let me people taste the moment for one more moment . Here is an article talking about the match.

Quote:
Heat of the battle favours teenager
Paul Malone
06jan05



EXCITING Bulgarian teenager Sesil Karatantcheva yesterday admitted she was in shock after wearing down heat-stressed Russian veteran Elena Likhovtseva in a dramatic Gold Coast second-round match.

Karatantcheva, the French Open junior champion, was rightly proud of how she somehow halted a streak of nine straight games against her, coming from 0-3 down in the third set to edge out Likhovtseva, seeded seventh, 6-2, 0-6, 7-6 (7-3).

Both players were warned by umpire Scott Ray for taking too much time between points in the third set of their Uncle Tobys Hardcourts encounter and Karatantcheva, 16, later sympathised with Likhovtseva over how the Russian had been docked a point penalty for a second delay-of-game offence.

Karatantcheva will have the resilience of youth on her side today when she tries to upset second seed Patty Schnyder in their quarter-final after a dramatic third set during which she found it "impossible to breathe".

The flamboyant Bulgarian, who has risen to No. 133 in the rankings, lay on her back after clinching match point after also trailing 1-3 in a punishing tiebreak.

Likhovtseva had called for a trainer at 4-3 in the third set to treat her for heat stress, but found the reserves to break Karatantcheva's serve when the teenager served for the match at 6-5.

"I believed I could still win even when I was behind, but I feel kind of shocked that I did," the Florida-based Karatantcheva said.

"I felt like: 'I'm young, so I have more mental priority than she does'.

"She got the point penalty, but the heat was unbelievable. You could get no oxygen after the long rallies in the third set."

On a steamy afternoon when tempers frayed, top seed Nadia Petrova admitted she has sore legs from her difficult straight-sets wins over China's Jie Zheng and Na Li.

Petrova received a warning for racquet abuse during a 7-5, 6-3 verdict yesterday over Li.

Schnyder, seeded second six years after winning the Gold Coast title, reached the quarter-finals without losing a set following a 6-4, 6-1 defeat of American qualifier Angela Haynes.

Schnyder has sought to duplicate her 2004 Australian Open preparation by rehiring Adelaide player Tim Creighton as a hitting partner to help her get a slice of the Grand Slam cake.

And here is a little quote from the WTATour site:

Quote:
...
Schnyder's opponent in the final eight will be Bulgarian qualifer Sesil Karatantcheva, who upset No.7 seed Elena Likhovtseva, 62 07 76(3). The 15-year-old rising star on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour needed 2 hours, 9 minutes to reach the quarterfinals, overcoming a 4-1 deficit in the third set, which alone lasted 1 hour, 17 minutes.

"This was a very sweet win and I know I will remember it," Karatantcheva said. "There was a point when I thought I could lose that match, but I know that it's not over until the final point.

"In the first set, I played well but the second set went so quick. She was winning it all and it wasn't until the game at 3-4 in the third set that I felt I was really back in the match. The points were so long and I hoped that being younger might help me. I was lucky to be the winner."

Karatantcheva wasn't the only teenager to reach the quarters on Day 4 as she was joined by 16-year-old Frenchwoman Tatiana Golovin, a 75 36 62 winner against Dinara Safina. Golovin will next face Italy's Flavia Pennetta, who took out France's Camille Pin, 62 46 63.
