- - KIRILENKO 7-5 4-6 4-6 - GAME, SET AND MATCH! Kirilenko has been ousted. She looked in some trouble at the start of the set, having a rub down from the physio, but fought on. In the end it was Hlavackova's aggression that told - she hit 38 unforced errors, considerably more than the 14th seed - but she also thundered 45 winners. She will now meet Serena Williams, the fourth seed - so suffice to say it won't get any easier for the Czech. Draw
- - KIRILENKO 7-5 4-6 - SET! Hlavackova gets the break early in the second, and defends it doggedly. It's exactly what she had the opportunity to do in the first, but this time she gets it right. This match deserves a decider, and will now get one.
- - KIRILENKO 7-5 - SET! The 14th seed gets over the line - but she made hard work for herself, only coming through having been 5-4 down and fending off a set point. Hlavackova caught short with the opening set in sight, but should take heart from having matched her higher-ranked opponent for so long.
- - Next up on the women's side of the draw, Maria Kirilenko, seeded 14th, takes on Andrea Hlavakova for the right to meet Serena Williams in the last 16. A dubious honour, given the form of the American.
