Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

Without a doubt the best match I’ve watched in a long, long time. I must say I was really surprised by the level of play. 5-7 6-3 7-6 for Pavlyuchenkova.

Agnieszka Radwanska and Li Na qualifies for the quarterfinals.
5th seed Angelique Kerber loses to Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets. Her next opponent: Maria Sharapova who dispatched Kirstens Flipkens 6-1 6-0.

On the men’s side, David Ferrer schools Kei Nishikori and will meet fellow countryman Nicolas Almagro in the quarters. Berdych beats Kevin Anderson.

Stanislas Wawrinka leads 6-1 5-2, serves to lead 2 sets to love, and then is a break up in the fifth set but Djokovic recovers to win 1-6 7-5 6-4 6-7 12-10 in about 5 hours. But of course he’ll be up and running in the next round, we all know his secret: his gluten-free (sarcasm on).
