Dominika Cibulkova def. (7) Nadia Petrova, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
Is anyone shocked by this result? I am not. I think that Dominika has the drive to do well, and Nadia is always struggling to find that one thing to keep her having a solid season, with solid results. Domi came out pretty hungry for this wing, and she really, really showed it. Like she did against Elena D. at Wimbledon, Nadia fought back but then she sort of just seemed to go away, like at Wimbledon. I love Nadia, but I think that this is one part of her game that definitely needs work if she plans on being a Top 10 competitor again anytime soon.
This was a amazing, and hard fought win for Domi.
Congrats. : )
