Mary lost 7-5 6-4...
Too bad she lost...but Myskina is pretty hot right now and very fit. So, maybe this is a sign of Mary getting better and better...especially against a player on the verge of cracking the Top 10.
Keep working hard Mary...

Pierce was undone by Myskina's powerful passing shots and intelligent use of angles.
However, the Frenchwoman did show some of the form that once elevated her into the world's Top 10 when she battled back to 5-5 after trailing 1-4 in the opening set.
Myskina then produced some superb shots to take the set in great style, with a double-handed backhand down the line.
The Frenchwoman matched Myskina shot-for-shot in the second set until the score reached 4-4, even saving a breakpoint with a blistering volley in the third game.
But Myskina picked up the pace when it mattered, breaking Pierce in the ninth game and holding her on serve to seal the victory.
