Wow it's been awhile since Venus played in Moscow. The last time I think was in 1998 losing to Mary Pierce in a weird match.

Take the cup, Venus :)

BTW joy you're right, I don't get it either, but I'm just glad she's playing in Moscow :)

MOSCOW (AP) -- Magdalena Maleeva upset top-seeded Venus Williams 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (3) Thursday in the second round of the Kremlin Cup.

Williams, who had a first-round bye, looked tired and had trouble with her returns against the 27-year-old Bulgarian.

On the men's side, top-seeded Marat Safin beat Brazil's Andre Sa 7-6 (3), 4-6, 7-5. Fifth-seeded Roger Federer beat Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 6-4 and will face Safin in the quarterfinals Friday. Second-seeded Yevgeny Kafelnikov also advanced with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Nicolas Kiefer.

Williams acknowledged she did not play her best match against Maleeva.

``You know, I didn't play for three weeks and I'm really tired,'' said Williams, who was playing in her first match since losing to her sister, Serena, in the U.S. Open finals. ``She (Maleeva) played really well, she played good at the right points.

``I made a lot of mistakes. It wasn't always going the best from me.''

In the decisive third set, Maleeva went up 3-1 on a break, but Williams evened it at 3 and both held serve to force a tiebreaker.

At 2-2 in the tiebreaker, Williams double faulted for the eighth time in the match, and Maleeva won the next three points to take a 6-2 lead. Maleeva closed the match with a powerful serve.

Williams will next play at the season-ending WTA Championships in Los Angeles from November 6-11.

``I want another break. It's nice to be at home,'' Williams said. ``It's quite difficult to play all year. Then you need a break because even if you do go home you have to practice.

``There is not a moment you can be away from tennis. Right now, I think it's my problem that I need to be away and do other things in my life.''

In other second-round play Thursday, third-seeded Lindsay Davenport defeated Spanish qualifier Magui Serna 6-4, 6-3.

Davenport was playing her first match since the U.S. Open.

``I really did not know when I would be ready to play after the U.S. Open,'' Davenport said. ``I was really happy I felt healthy after New York, and I really wanted to play here. ... I'd never been here.''

In other results, Elena Bovina upset ninth-seeded Elena Dementieva 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. France's Nathalie Dechy ousted Meghann Shaughnessy of the United States 6-3, 6-3 and will meet Maleeva in the quarterfinals.

Nadia Petrova of Russia reached the quarterfinals when Anna Kournikova withdrew from the tournament after injuring her left ankle during her doubles match Wednesday.

Tests done Thursday morning showed Kournikova partially ruptured her left ankle ligament.
