ACURA CLASSIC (San Diego, California, hard, WTA Tier I)
=============
Second round
------------


- VERA ZVONARËVA [8] lt. Mashona Washington, 6-4 4-6 6-4

Apparently Washington played very well, particularly her serve - although Bepa wasted several break-points in the third set. Bepa is now on a losing-streak of three matches in singles! :sad:

- VERA ZVONARËVA/ELENA LIKHOVTSEVA [2] lt. CONCHITA MARTÍNEZ/VIRGINIA RUANO PASCUAL [3], 1-3 (15/0) retired

I had to wait overnight to find out why Bepa and Elena retired so abruptly after taking an early lead (3-0 with one break became 3-1).

Bepa sprained her left ankle, and it sounds very bad according to Sam at http://www.zvonareva.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=185 : Bepa had to go to hospital and now "is on crutches and has an air cast on her foot". :scared:

She has pulled out of this week's Los Angeles tournament. I wish her a speedy recovery - but more importantly, a full recovery.
