Extractions: 3rd round The evergreen Spaniard is staging something of a revival this year, having looked close to retirement last season. After reaching the final of the French Open in 2000, Martinez looked to have left her best tennis behind her, with injury keeping her out of action. However, Martinez's looping groundstrokes have brought her surprising success this season. In March, the 30-year-old reached the semi-finals at the high-quality Indian Wells tournament, losing to eventual champion Kim Clijsters. And on her favourite surface of clay, she reached the last eight at the French Open - her first Grand Slam quarter-final since Wimbledon in 2001 - before losing again to eventual finalist Clijsters. At Eastbourne, she reached her first grasscourt final since 1994 (at Wimbledon), losing to second seed Chanda Rubin but she could not maintain that form at the All England Club and went out in the third round.

Extractions: 3rd round The 32-year-old Spaniard may not be the biggest draw or most exciting name on the tour but her consistency is remarkable. A former world number two and Wimbledon champion, there was every reason to think Martinez was heading for retirement until last year. The days of the mid-1990s when she was a Grand Slam contender seemed long gone and her last title came in Berlin back in 2000. Martinez's slow-paced baseline game based on looping groundstrokes looked out of touch compared with the aggression of the Williams sisters and the Belgians. But she had something of a revival last season that saw her ranked as high as 12 going into the US Open. Experience counts, and Martinez used all hers to earn some notable results on her favoured clay and in the grass-court season.
