Makarova Upsets Azarenka at Madrid Open
MADRID (AP) - Ekaterina Makarova of Russia upset top-ranked Victoria Azarenka 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 Wednesday to reach the third round of the Madrid Open.
Azarenka, runner-up in Madrid the past two years, lost her temper, broke her racket and argued with the chair umpire.
The Belarusian double-faulted five times and got in just over half of her first serves. The 24th-ranked Makarova had 60 percent first-serve accuracy.
In men's play, sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych defeated Jerzy Janowicz 6-7 (3) 6-3, 6-2 and No. 14 Kei Nishikori downed Viktor Troicki 7-5, 6-2.
