Magdalena Rybarikova was the mover of the week with her impressive run to the quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. She knocked out two top ten players: Belinda Bencic and Roberta Vinci before she lost to the eventual champion. Severely hampered by a right leg injury and barely able to move, she was easy pickings for Victoria Azarenka. It’s not a score that she wants to remember, the dreaded double bagel and she will definitely want to erase that memory as soon as possible. We wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she will be able to build on this performance as the season progresses.
