Australian Open '09: first four rounds

Round One: Powerful ninth seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland out to Kateryna Bondarenko of the Bondarenko twins doubles team: that is almost a joke.

Round Two: (You have to gain some composure from the Radwanska result for this): number six seed Venus out to Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro. (I told you to get composured.)

Round Three: PRC's Jie Zheng takes out Kateryna Bondarenko, while Kutzi takes out her sister. Hmmmm, this bears watching this year: France's Alize Cornet (no. 15 seed) (pictured) took out no. 19 the Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia. France, hmmmm. Alize (please do not even think a French hope in France.) Ana Ivanovic (the no. 5 seed) out. Jelena Dokic 3-6 6-1 6-2 over eleventh seeded Caroline Wozniacki. Marion Bartoli (another French), who I expect to do well this year, on to meet Jelena Jankovic.

Round Four: Marion Bartoli defeats Jelena Jankovic 6-1 6-4. Jelena Dokic on to the quarter-finals of the year's first major 7-5 5-7 8-6 over Russia's Alisa Kleybanova. Jie Zheng retired in the first set, waving through the Russian Kutzi to meet Serena in the quarters. All in all, a superb image surfing op.
