(1)Amelie Mauresmo d. Maria Kirilenko 4-6 6-4 6-1

I guess Momo needed some time to get her game started again
BTW she had matchpoint for 6-0 in the final set...

No, Maria just faded completely midway through the second. If she had been in better shape, she would have won. Mauresmo was terrible until 4-4 in the second. I don't think she'll go much farther here...

Three times Mauresmo went up 0-40 on Maria's serve, then lost the next five points .

i don't mean to bash momo, but something is so unsettling about her having the #1 seed...

Whenever Amelie has pressure, she falters.

Congrats Amelie....
...but what a great effort from Maria! She's really getting there, gaining the experience, and in the future she'll be able to pull through matches like this. I bet the creeping thought "Oh my, I'm beating the world number two here." had a little, if just a little to do with her defeat.

Bad luck to Maria - it did look like there would be a major "upset" here when she lead 6-4 3-1 but it wasn't to be.

Maria you will get there one day.

And the infamous mboyle attacks Momo again.

Look at this way, she won despite not playing her best. She always struggles against young Russian players. And her last 2 loses were to Linetskaya and Safina. 'nuff said.
