In a result I predicted at the beginning of the day, unseeded Anastasia Rodionova upset No. 19 Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 2-6, 6-4.
After match point, Kuznetsova refused to shake Rodionova’s hand, which in this case is far more of a reflection on Rodionova than it is on Kuznetsova.
Rodionova is, after all, one of only two players in WTA history to be defaulted from a match for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Rodionova, a Russian-born Australian, also famously celebrated as her opponent, Sabine Lisicki, writhed on the ground in pain at the 2009 US Open.
She’s a keeper, this one.
