Austrian phenomenon Tamira Paszek defeated second seed Maria Kirilenko of Russia 6-1, 6-3, and became the first semifinalist at the 2008 ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand.
Sixth-seeded Paszek was happy with her on court performance. “I didn’t miss many shots,” she says, adding that she felt she had her rhythm.
Other quarterfinal matches are Vera Zvonarevia vs. Marina Erakovic (at the moment I’m writing this they’re playing the third set), Katarina Srebotnik vs. Aravane Rezai, and Lindsay Davenport vs. Sara Errani. (source: TVNZ)
