Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Davenport Advance, Zvonareva Falls!

New York City, USA


The third day of the US Open kicked off today with a few Russians in action while American Lindsay Davenport was to play during the night session. Sveltana Kuznetsova had a tough start to her second round match being taken to a tiebreak by her opponent, Sorana Cirstea. The second set was more to Kuznetsova's liking as she took the match 7-6(3), 6-1. Elena Dementieva was also in action and had a pretty easy time against Pauline Parmentier, 6-2, 6-1. Demetieva is looking to make it deep into this draw. The only large upset of the day came when the Bronze medalist from the Beijing Olympics went out in the second round, 6-3, 6-3 to Tatiana Perebiynis.

Lindsay Davenport had a tough second round encounter as well. Playing off against a hard hitting opponent in Alisa Kleybanova, Davenport was leading in the first set by a break but couldn't put it away until her second oppurtunity. The second set was just as slow as the first but Davenport was a bit stronger taking the match, 7-5, 6-3. This is the first time this year Davenport has reached the third round of a major after losing to Sharapova in Australia and retiring at Wimbledon. Jelena Jankovic had a very tough time earlier in the day, almost losing her match up. Struggling with nerves and rusty match play, the number 2 player had to go the distance to close out her match against Sofia Arvidsson. Jankovic usually struggles to get better at the majors.

Tomorrow Ana Ivanovic, and the Williams Sisters come back for their second round matches. Each are looking to progress towards the weekend.
