Flipkens through, Arvidsson eliminated



Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium advanced to the third round of the US National Indoor Tennis Championships in Memphis, Tennessee, on Wednesday with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine.

No 3 seed Sabine Lisicki of Germany beat Melinda Czink of Hungary 7-6 (0), 4-6, 6-2.

No 2 seed and defending champion Sofia Arvidsson of Sweden was eliminated by Marina Erakovic of New Zealand 6-1, 3-6, 6-3. Arvidsson defeated Erakovic in last year's final.

"I came out a bit flat and didn't move well," Arvidsson said. "I tried to work my way into the match, but Marina played a great match. She was on fire, she was really aggressive."

Fourth seed Heather Watson of Britain and eighth seed Kristina Mladenovic moved into the quarterfinals. Watson beat Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic 2-6, 6-0, 6-3 and Mladenovic defeated Victoria Duval 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
