Unseeded Srichaphan shocks Davydenko.
|The way unseeded Paradorn Srichaphan played in his 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 victory over No. 6 seed Nikolay Davydenko Friday in the second round of the US Open might cause tennis fans everywhere to pay a bit more attention to the brawny 26-year-old Thai .|
Srichaphan employed a powerful forehand against Davydenko, tallying 21 forehand winners and controlling most of the match by making the 24-year-old Russian scurry and sometimes shrug in exhaustion at the shots he just could not reach.
Sania closes on to a clash with Sharapova.....
Sania Mirza defeated Marion Bartoli of France 7-6 (7/4) 6-4 victory over at the Arsmstrong Stadium here today.
Sania's powerful ground strokes proved too hot to handle for the 19-year old Bartoli whose defensive tactics backfired against her aggressive opponent.
Sania will now meet either Russian top seed Maria Sharapova or Julia Schruff of Germany for a berth in the quarterfinals.
