Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) d  Justine Henin (BEL) 6-4 7-6(8). Few saw this coming. Kuzzie surprised the 2010 finalist with a mixture of power and precision. Henin scrambled and had her chances late in the second set, but the Russian wasn't ready to go home just yet.
Did that just happen?
After hearing that there were some sections of the media who thought her press conferences were boring, Great Dane Caroline Wozniacki decided to take matters into her own hands. Rather than taking questions from the media, Caro pre-empted and answered all questions herself. "You know, I find it quite, you know, funny because I always get the same questions. So I'm just going to start. I know what you're going to ask me already. So I'm just going to start with the answer," the world No.1 said. Following she fielded questions about global warming, cricket, what she likes in men ("Honesty. Understanding what I'm doing. Maybe a sportsperson himself.") and when she's planning on getting married and having kids ("First I have to find a guy.") Nice work, Caro.

First up it's fifth seed Sam Stosur versus Brisbane International winner Petra Kvitova, followed by world No.1 Rafael Nadal and teenager Bernard Tomic. Sparks flew the last time Tomic played a night session at RLA - will Rafa send Bernard to bed early or will the teenager stay up late and cause some havoc?
It'll be a long drive home for …
Viktor Troicki. After pushing compatriot Novak Djokovic to five sets in the first round of the US Open last year, Troicki will be unhappy with the outcome of today's match. After losing the first set 6-2, Troicki called time citing a stomach strain.
What did you say?
Reigning French Open champion Francesca Schiavone copped some random questions today.
Q: Can you tell us a few words about Kim Clijsters? (Schiavone and Clijsters are in opposite halves of the draw.)
Francesca: Yeah, but why Kim?
Q: Just in general, what can you tell us about her comeback?
Francesca: You know who is Kim. I think I don't have to tell you who is.
Q: Did things change in Italy after winning the French Open? Did you receive more invitations for TV shows, for example?
Francesca: You didn't read the newspaper?
Q: Yeah, I did.
Francesca: I think they ask me 100 time [already].
A little known fact about
Caroline Wozniacki. The world No.1 likes to bake and played the piano until the age of 13. Just don't ask her about whether or not she deserves being No.1 without having won a Grand Slam tournament
