Iveta and Alla K beat No.2 seeds Mirza/Shvedova in Birmingham. I saw the match and they combined well. I'm sure Iveta could have made more of a match against Moore if she really wanted to because she was hitting the ball pretty well from the baseline.
I don't think they'll beat Zheng/Zhang though (assuming there's any play today).

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
