New Zealand’s Marina Erakovic staged a fantastic upset at her home tournament ASB Classic by beating top seed and last year’s finalist Vera Zvonareva.
It is a really big win for the world No.153 who won the match in the third set tie-break and in that way reached the ASB Classic semifinals. I watched the match a little bit on the internet, and Erakovic, as well as the crowd, were ecstatic, and quite shocked.
Final score: 63 26 76(5)
