At first I thought Chanel Simmonds = Channelle Scheepers and I was about Cristina's bad luck in the draw. Should still be a tough match, but I hope she can pull it out. Bafta!

Cristina blew a 62 43 40-0 lead, but managed to take the win in the end. She now takes on 8th seed Dalila Jakupovic of Slovenia for a place in the final. Hai Cristina!

Re: Cristina Dinu

Very good win for her, although she managed to make it more interesting than it needed to be (what else is new ). Glad she came through in the end.

Doubles game with Fatma al Nabhani for a spot in the semis is scheduled later on tonight. Overtime day for Cristina!

Re: Cristina Dinu

Just made the semis in doubles as well. Lagos singles queen is not enough for her any more -she wants doubles greatness as well .
Dinu(Rou)/Al Nabhani (Oma) def Masuri(Isr)/Wang(Chn) 6-3 6-3.

Second seeds Perrin/Simmonds are up next (yes, Simmonds again).

Re: Cristina Dinu

25K Lagos (NGR), MD:

(6)Naomi Broady (GBR) v (Q)Smriti Joon (IND)
Margarita Lazareva (RUS) v (wc)Ronke Akingbade (NGR)
(Q)Xi-Yao Wang (CHN) v Maria Sakkari (GRE)
(4)Cristina Dinu (ROU) v (Q)Aminat Quadri (NGR)

I like this draw better than the one last week. She should definitely (at least) reach the final this time. Hai Cristina!

Re: Cristina Dinu

I can't see her beating Broady if she is getting straight setted by Jakupovic.

But then again Cristina is playing according to her moods. Anything possible.
