before friday, all the russians fall



1) Venus Williams continues to tear through the draw with a 6-3, 6-4 win over fifth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova. Venus reaches the semi-finals as the twenty-third seed.

2) Nikolay Davydenko lost in three sets to Marcos Baghdatis. I really thought Davydenko would win, but he’s been lackluster so I’m not surprised. And I didn’t give Marcos enough credit. I guess he’s not just coasting on emotional fumes anymore a la 2006. (And he’s seeded tenth, after all).

Okay, now we’ve seen a version of Kolya’s Airness shirt in every color imaginable. It’s time to change the cut of his kit, people!

3) And Mikhail Youzhny took two sets off Rafa Nadal but lost in five. Here he is wearing adidas.
