Last week it was the men in Queen’s, this week it’s the ladies in Eastbourne taking over Tennis Channel airwaves. And there have already been some interesting results at the AEGON International.
Kim Clijsters beat countrywoman Yanina Wickmayer, 6-1, 6-1 in her first match since April. Aravane Rezai took out top seed Caroline Wozniacki on Tuesday, who said afterwards, a little worryingly: “I still think I’m a great player.” Victoria Azarenka gained a little positive momentum with a straight set win over Agnieszka Radwanska. Francesca Schiavone fell in straights to Sorana Cirstea, saying afterwards that she’s still recharging her batteries. Sam Stosur, Nadia Petrova and Svetlana Kuznetsova are also in the ladies draw – the tournament is a combined event, with Nicolas Almagro and Felicano Lopez the top ATP seeds.
