-Unseeded Camille Pin of France upset seventh-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-2, 6-0 in the first round of the Cincinnati Open on Monday.
Pin, who is ranked 78th on the WTA Tour, said she focused on keeping the 57th-ranked Makarova off-balance by changing tempo in the first meeting between the two.
"I knew she was a tough player,'' said Pin. "When I watched her play, I knew there were certain ways she liked to play, and I tried not going to where she liked.''

Katya has to get fitter and stronger. She has to flatten out her forehand once in a while.
Patty Schnyder can do that and Katya has to learn to be more aggressive when she gets her opponent moving and opens up the court.

She has a stylish game, and people will enjoy watching her, but she needs to improve to get into matches were people can see her style of game

Katya is a very good doubles player. And being a lefty who can serve and volley, everyone is going to want her as a partner.
I think Katya has a chance to be a star. Her style is fun to watch. She just needs more improvement and definately more fitness. You can't fall apart because it's a 3 set match
