Tennis-Mauresmo tumbles out of Warsaw Cup quarter-final

WARSAW, April 30 (Reuters) - French world number three and top seed Amelie Mauresmo crashed out of the $585,000 Warsaw Cup on Friday, losing to fast-improving Italian Francesca Schiavone in three sets.
Holder Mauresmo won the first set 6-3 but then lost a tie-break (7-2) for the second, before succumbing 6-1 to an impressive display of serving from Schiavone, who has advanced to 20th in the world rankings over the past year.

The win puts 24-year-old Schiavone in the semi-finals, where she will play fourth-seeded world number 13 Svetlana Kuznetsova, who beat another Italian Silvia Farina Elia in straight sets 6-1 6-4 earlier on Friday.

Top seed in the other half of the draw is world number 11 Venus Williams, who withdrew injured from last year's final. The American former Wimbledon champion plays Bulgaria's Magdalena Maleeva later on Friday.

The fourth quarter-final pitches Israeli Anna Pistolesi against Russia's Vera Zvonareva.

I thought Venus was ranked 13th?

She is ranked 13. So that is not a "fact"

Exactly. That is what I was trying to point out.

Perhaps we could have a showdown between the two #13's. Maybe one of them will get "lucky". LOL
