Stunning win for Ana and Maria

Ana and Maria Kirilenko comfortably beat top seeds Liezel Huber and Martina Navratilova in the first round of the J&S Cup doubles competition. The teenagers triumphed 6-2, 6-4 in a match that lasted 84 minutes.

Between them, Huber and Navratilova have amassed 187 doubles titles on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour; Ana and Kirilenko have won just two, but they underlined their quality with a fabulous win. They will play Iveta Benesova and Michaella Krajicek in the quarter-finals, after the Czech-Dutch pairing beat Marta Domachowska and Janette Husarova 5-7, 7-6, 6-4.

Meanwhile, Ana's second round singles tie against Patty Schnyder has been scheduled as the third match on the Central Court on Thursday. It is expected to begin at 3pm Central European Time.
