Article

Its been a busy day in Casablanca Premier Tournament. 4 Quarterfinal matches took place in Complexe Al Amal.




Andrea Petkovic was the first player to reach semifinals of Casablanca Tournament. After she eaily lost the first set 1-6 to Daniela Hantuchova, she was dominant in next 2 sets winning both with a 6-1 result.
Crowd had a lot of fun there, especially during Andrea's 'Petkodance'



Next up on CC was match between Anne Keothavong and Vera Zvonareva. Anne completely destroyed Vera with her powerful forehands and in the end Vera didnt manage to win a single game against 'on-fire' Keothavong.



Match between Keothavong and Zvonareva was followed by the most exciting match yesterday in which young Serbian hope defeated Li Na of China. Chinesse won the first set but Jovanovski came up with some amazing service games taking Li to the decider. Li got broken in a third game and Jovanovski then comfortambly finished the match , holding her every service game.



Last match of the day was between Venus Williams from Usa and Dutch Michaela Krajicek. Another 3 setter and very exciting match. Venus started started strongly, bagelling Krajicek in first set. However, Dutch Player managed to win second set but Venus easily finished the match winning a decider 6-3 and advancing to the Semifinal.

Re: [Who? What? Where?] - Week 2 (2012) - Casablanca (PRE) (W-Bojana Jovanovski)

Jovanovski Too Strong, Wins First Title

Serbia's Bojana Jovanovski won the first title of her career at the tournament in Casablanca defeating Anne Keothavong 6:1 0:6 6:0 in the final.



Jovanovski had some tough times during the week - including coming from a set and a break down to beat Li Na in the quarterfinals 5:7 7:6 6:4, but once she got to the title match she was in complete cruise control.



"I've worked really hard for this," Jovanovski said. "I had really hard preparation before this tournament, so I was expecting to play well here.

"It's been a tough week. The quarterfinal was a really, really tough match, so after that everything seemed easier for me. I felt much better after that match. I'm really glad I made it through that one.

"I went into today's final with nothing to lose. I was so positive. I was just trying to fight for every point and not thinking about winning or losing, just trying to play the best I can. It feels great to win my first title. I'm so glad I did it."



Before this week, Jovanovski's best result was semifinal in Cape Town.

I love my hater he makes me feel greater
