Chakvetadze had the match in her hands, but kudos to Alison on making the QFs.

FTH. Seriously. Don't knock her until you've seen her. She has a great game for grass, and she couldn't be a nicer, more sporting girl.

Keep it going Alison! Yanina will be tough, but it will be interesting to see what you do against her!

Anna led 64 32 with a break and then all but capitualated, especially in the third set.
another disappointing loss to add to the countless she already has.......

Anna :crying2: This week means nothing to me. She defeated no one. Petkovic has never won on grass in her life, so great job Anna on getting as far as you did with a good draw. :weirdo:

Thrilled for Alison though! :bounce: Amazing week for you! Keep going!! :D

She really deserves this breakthrough! I am so pleased. :woohoo:

Kudos to Riske... she seemed to serve excellently, but Anna really should have won this. Ah well... disappointing, but this week is an improvement.

She's a very good player. Very, very nice girl as well.

Holy shit!! Alison :D What a week. First time qualifying for a WTA event, first main draw win, first wins over a top 100 player, and now her first WTA quarterfinal.

Nothing to lose against Wickmayer now. Go for it!

Yes! Great job Alison! She's such a sweet girl. So nice to see her having success after turning pro. She gave up a (pretty sure it was at least) full ride to Vanderbilt to go pro. GL in the quarters!

No, she beat Chakvetadze, who is a headcase. Good win - yes, amazing - no.

This could be Riske's breakout tournament.
She's around the same age as Wozniacki, so its about time she started to win at the WTA level

Young players are all in the Wozniacki comparisons. She is the most accomplished under 20 player
