Ekaterina Wins, Ekaterina Loses

In the Battle of the Ekaterinas, “Maka” — Ekaterina Makarova — triumphed, losing the first set to fellow Russian Ekaterina Bychkova before taking the next two to win, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3. Makarova’s loud cheering section may have helped buoy her, and her resemblance to storied champ Steffi Graf couldn’t have hurt. Bychkova ended her Open in the second round for the fourth straight year.
