Li takes 2nd set 64! after a mini choke! 41 up, and had 4 game points to be 52 up! breaks Lisicki in final game, and takes it on her first set point.

Final set, Li to serve! please win!

To say the Lisicki/Li Na match isn't up to the standards of their Wimbledon match is a bit of an understatement.

Li 12/49 W/UE
Lisicki 11/52

It has been dire. Car crash tennis from both of them.

13/47 Li
13/46 Sabine

Li/Masha could be all kinds of ugly!

Li wins 36 64 62! breaks Lisicki to love in final game :)

so ugly, yet its a win! hopefully rid those r2 demons from last years wimble!
great to see her do back to back QFs at IW + Miami, considering she has had back to back r1 losses in 2010 + 2011 at these places!


next up is Sharapova! who leads the H2H 5-4, though Li has won the last 4 encounters all in straight sets. (i swear Li plays better against higher ranked players)

Terrific start by Cibulkova against Azarenka - holds serve in very long opening game and then breaks for *2-0. She is being very aggressive and so far, it's working a treat. Doubt if she can keep it up but it is very good to watch.

What's the deal with Vania King and Yaro Shvedova playing against each other in doubles today? They haven't fallen out, have they?! I thought that they got on so well..

Shvedova + Vosko.... are both from kazakhstan so im guessing Olympics related?

wasnt it difficult too, as Vania is higher ranked in singles so cant play same tournaments? i think i read that somewhere

wow Dominika! 5-0 up! she took out Little Jie 62 60 in the last round! shes on fire! be good to see how Azarenka is going to deal with this!

is it bottom half QFs tomorrow? or just mens r16 matches? anyone know?

Ah - that would make sense! Still, must have been a bit odd for them.

What odds would you have got on little Dom being 5-0 up on Vika in the first set?

Dom had a dire run of form not so long ago, but she has recently been showing signs of her game clicking again.

Lots of clean, aggressive hitting from Dom.

And Vika's bh all over the place. She's having the bad day in the office that was probably coming to her, I think,

i went for a quick shower at 51... and wtf?! its 61 41 already! when Dominika is on, she is really on. a remember the match she beat Caro last year, went for broke on all her shots. hits the ball so early! return winners!

im not watching but from the score line this is whats happening! like Vika, and expected her to not defend her title here BUT didnt see her losing to Cibulkova!
