Question What's going on with Hong Kong Expo now?

It seems like Williams sisters, Elena and Vera are playing best of 3 tie break sets doubles now..... Isn't it supposed to be a 8-game pro set?

How come Vera replaced Nicole to play doubles with Elena?

Anybody knows?

My guess is the organizers changed the format so that the audiences in Hong Kong can watch Serena to play more?? or Nicole is sick and cannot play the singles against Elena tonite??

Thats what I was thinking, that something must be up with Nicole.

Hope its not serious and how will this affect the RR format?

I'm trying to get current scores. All I know is that the Williams sisters were down 5-7, 3-1, but I can't get current score.

Well Done, Alyona & Vera!!!

I've seen a few shots on the live webcam before, and Alyona's returns were amazing to watch!!!

But is she still need to play the singles against Nicole now?

The Williams sisters are still in the doubles competition. All players played a regular doubles match as a favor due to the withdrawl of Nicole. BTW, because of that withdrawl, Elena walked into the final.
