Weekly Overview (12)

You know the drill.

The Overrule didn't get any kind of run for our money due to Kevin Anderson's withdrawal from Queen's before his second round match. Most bookmakers have an "all in, compete or not" rule where it concerns outrights although there are a few exceptions. Over the course of a season it's inevitable that luck may go against us once or twice in instances such as this and that's what happened here.

On the women's side Tsvetana Pironkova lost in two tight sets to Sorana Cirstea in the second round while Kristina Mladenovic lost in the third round to eventual champion Daniela Hantuchova (16/1). Mladenovic served for the match in the second set against the Slovak but couldn't close the deal.

In the Nurnberg final Simona Halep made a mockery of the excessive market move on her price - based almost entirely on an ankle injury she had picked up in the second set of her semi-final with Lucie Safarova - by comfortably beating home favorite Andrea Petkovic to claim the first title of her career. The Romanian was outstanding under pressure saving all eight break points she faced in the match with consummate ease.
