Toronto Doubles QF: (2) Ai & Kata def. (6) Shuai & Zi 6-1 7-5

Nice job

Fifth consective SF

Nearly bagelled in the first (took them five SPs to close it out), and then were down 5-3 in the second, and down two set points.
They charged forward and took it on their second MP!


Ai & Kata Please beat Alicia & Mara tomorrow, get revenge and reach another final !!

Zi&Shuai Zi, good luck in the SF tomorrow

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Well done! But next round against Mara/Alicia should be more difficult!

The race to the Masters gets really interesting! 5 teams, 4 spots!!!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

yan/shuai need to play more matches together but anyway they are just a temporary team... yan will play doubles with jie once she is totally healthy poor sun and shuai (they were meant to be no.2 team)
