Upset of the day:

Maria Kirilenko def. Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1 4-6 7-5

After a flawless first 2 tournaments this year, Agnieszka Radwanska dropped in her form and seems to be struggling. She loses a tight one to Maria Kirilenko, who has dropped sets in her previous rounds to lowly ranked players and fresh from a shoulder injury. These 2 have met numerous times and Radwanska has not lost to Kirilenko since 2009. This is a worrying trend for the world number 4. By the looks of this, she's unlikely to defend her Miami title next week. Anyway, great job to Kirilenko for making the most of her game. She'll be facing Kvitova next, who she took out in Olympics.
