Nothing personal against Russians, but Martina has now beaten all three of the Russians who won slams while she was away. Now, she just has to figure out a way to get past Dementieva.
Anyway, sets up a semi against Amelie, which should be interesting to say the least.
But I think Hingis has proven beyond any doubt now that she can cope with the power players.
Incidentally, she was obviously going for more on her serve today. She hit three aces and made four double faults, something she doesn't usually do, so she is packing more serving heat.
