WTA Diary: Seeds Keep Falling
Elina Svitolina

Every week there's a lot happening on the WTA - on the court, off the court, by the numbers, even a few tweets... catch up on it all in this week's WTA Diary.

Upsets Keep Coming
Last week in Bastad, a remarkable run of results ensured that by the end of day three none of the eight seeds were still standing. The trend has continued in Baku, where four seeds have already bitten the dust.

Luckily for the tournament organizers, their top two seeds, Sorana Cirstea and Elina Svitolina, avoided the upset pandemic to make it safely through to the second round

One Month On
They may not be as accustomed to life in the public eye as Steffi and Andre or Maria and Grigor, but for a few days in June Michaella Krajicek and Martin Emmrich were tennis' hottest couple. One month on, CNN caught up with the lovebirds.

I'll Be There For You
Caroline Wozniacki only turned 24 earlier this month, but following her Istanbul success she has now won at least one WTA tournament in each of the past seven seasons. Victory has also thrust her back into the reckoning for a place at the WTA Finals.

She's also had some kind words to say about her good mate Serena Williams.

Quick Decision
It didn't take Ana Ivanovic long to come to a decision over her new coach.

The Fame Monster
Petra Kvitova remained down to earth after winning Wimbledon in 2011, and judging by this recent Tweet there's no danger of her turning into a diva after title number two!
