Cincinnati SF: [1] Black / Huber def. Amanmuradova / Niculescu 6-4 6-1

Wow, emphatic win to back up the Petrova/Mattek victory in the previous round! They are really proving a point this week!

Alot has been said in the other thread about Akgul and Monica's potential as doubles players and recent fantastic form, and that continued for them this week in getting through to a Premier5 SF. This was a dangerous match for the no.1's so it indicates to me they're playing very well right now. Akgul and Monica will have many more chances like this in the future though, both together or with other partners.


Good luck in the final Cara/Liezel, take the title!

Cara and Liezel needs to win tomorrow so they can have confidence in defending their USO title especially if the Williams Sisters elect not to play due to location.

Slightly disappointing scoreline for Monica and Akgul but Cara and Liezel aren't world number one for nothing.

And at least it gives both Monica and Akgul the chance to qualify for the Roger's Cup today.

Very good match by Cara and Liezel, very solid both at the net and from the baseline. Moreover, Liezel's serve was just brilliant, leaving to chance to the opponents.
Now NuriaJo: they are a very solid team, but this week IMO Maria Jose showed a few limits both at the net and when serving... it can be a very interesting match, I cant wait to see it!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Thanks Stefi.

If their Wimbledon match is anything to go by then this one should be a thriller.
