Third-seeded Nadia Petrova of Russia also advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Anna Smashnova of Israel.
The unseeded Israeli had trouble with her serve, dropping the second game on a double fault. Petrova held her serve in the third game for a 3-0 lead, but could not convert break points in the next game, allowing Smashnova to rally.
Smashnova broke back in the seventh game on a string of unforced errors by her Russian opponent, and went level at 4-4. But a wide backhand by Smashnova at 5-4 helped Petrova win a tight first set in 55 minutes.
Petrova finally took control to win the second set comfortably.
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
