Pennetta upset in New Haven
Number 6 seed Flavia Pennetta was upset today in the second round of Pilot Pen Tennis by Sorana Cirstea, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3. Cirstea's win sets her up for a third round match against top seed Anna Chakvetadze, who defeated Casey Dellacqua in straight sets. Cirstea defeated Chakvetadze the only other time they have played, on green clay in Charleston this year. Cirstea had some tough times a few months ago, but appears to have bounced back.
