The surprise of the days starred in the Czech Petra Kvitova, who overcame a 7-6, 6-3 to Russia’s Nadia Petrova, seeded third.
There were no third chances for him to lose today, and therefore both players had to play the game face to face in order to stay alive in the tournament.
David Ferrer was complicated from the start, Soderling’s serve got broken into an opportunity, and that was enough to win the first set 7-5.
In the second set, the Swede was 5-2 up and seemed to take the match comfortably, but Ferrer responded, equal to 5 to 5, and when it seemed that he could consummate the comeback Soderling appeared to close the set and match by 7-5.
