Safina at Olympics :: update

14 Aug

while on the subject of the Olympics, Dinara has been making good strides to reach the semi-finals.

world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia was hoping for revenge after No. 6 seed Safina defeated her in the semifinals of a WTA Tour event in Los Angeles last month, en-route to winning the title :: despite a tricky second set, Safina prevailed 6-2 5-7 6-3 and so there are three Russians in the semis – No. 5 seed Dementieva faces No. 9 seed Zvonareva, and Safina faces Li Na (who may have a huge home-crowd advantage)

and speaking of amazons, both No. 4 seed Serena Williams and No. 7 seed Venus Williams were despatched in the quarters, Serena by Dementieva (3-6 6-4 6-3) and Venus by Li Na (7-5 7-5)
