Great win for Petrova. Nadia was down 1-3 in the First Set and then reeled off five straight games to win the First Set 6-3. Likhovsteva then came up on top early in the Second Set as she raced to a 3-0 lead and held two Break Points to go 4-0 up but Nadia managed to save them. The next couple of service games for both players remained on serve until Likhovtseva failed to serve out the Second Set at 5-3 as she lost her serve to 15. Petrova then held serve to level the Second Set at 5-5 and immediately broke to 15 to allow her to serve for the match. Nadia made no hesitations as she easily served out the match, converting to her first Match Point.

Nadia won 6-3 7-5 :)

In the Quarter Finals, Nadia will face another Russian Vera Zvonareva who upset Third Seed Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1 6-3. Petrova leads the H2H against Zvonareva 2-1 having won their last meeting in Berlin 2006 in straight sets where Nadia went on to win the title.

Good Luck Nadia!
