Eleni won in singles over Fedak. The score is unknown now. All I know is that Eleni won, because results aren't out yet but tomorrow's OOP is out and Eleni will play against Russia's Olga Puchkova in the quarterfinal :D. The doubles result isn't out yet either, as the doubles semifinals will most likely be played on Saturday. Also, Anna Gerasimou must've lost too:sad:.
