Weekly Overview (7)
Petra Kvitova's winning streak ended at nine as she was beaten by Maria Kirilenko in the last eight. We were one step away from an intriguing battle between Maria Sharapova and Kvitova but Kirilenko scuppered any chances of that match-up coming to fruition. Kvitova led 6-4 4-1 before imploding at the flick of a switch in the second set.
Tomas Berdych made good progress on his way to the last four where his section of the draw opened up very nicely. Berdych had said he would rather face Roger Federer than Rafael Nadal in the last four and the Spaniard - playing his first hard court event since returning from injury - proved why with a largely commanding performance. Berdych had his chance to extend the match into a deciding set but he couldn't serve out the second set when his opportunity came.
