Nastya let Hercog beat her, so that she didn't then have to beat Domi for the 15th time. Nastya likes Domi and wants her to have some success on the tour.

Wait, you're Domi? I thought it was Broseghini.

Re: S7 - 3: Apia International, Sydney (I)

Serena Pushes Through



On thursday night, Serena Williams of the United States made it to the semifinals of the Sydney Apia International a Tier 1 event. After ousting Heather Watson the World's #7 in two sets on wednesday afternoon, Serena had to dig deep tonight outplaying Daniela Hantuchova in 3 tough sets: 4-6 7-6(5) 7-6(6). Serena will now be playing the World #5, Maria Sharapova, on friday night in what will probably be hell of a match. Serena had a few words to say after the win.



Q. You said you weren't quite at your best tonight. Where do you think you need to improve?

SERENA WILLIAMS: You know, I just can hit a little deeper and better, be more consistent. You know, hopefully that will come as hopefully I keep playing.

Q. What are you doing during your off days? Maria is napping and reading.

SERENA WILLIAMS: I am doing treatment, a lot of treatment. I'm not reading. School starts on the 23rd, so I kind of texted one of my professors to tell him I was in Australia, and I don't know if I can make the first assignment in time. He was like, It's fine. I was wondering if it was really you (laughter). I was like, okay, just really nervous about school starting. He's like, Don't worry about it.

Q. How do you like your Australian Open preparation ?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Last week was a disaster and this week has been much better. Yet I still feel like the last match could have gone either way so that stresses me out a little. But I'm up to all the challenges so hopefully I'll keep improving and I'll be better next week. As it right now I'm hitting about 3-4 hours a day, plus the matches I play, plus the gym. So there's not much I can do but try my hardest out there.

Also, this kind, charitable act should win Nastya the Humanitarian award at the end of the season. Long overdue IMO.
