Moscow SF: (2)Kirilenko/Petrova d. Kops Jones/Spears 7-5 6-4

They made it from the bronze medal match to this, what a year for pressure matches for Nadia and Kiri

Abi and Rocky excellent effort trying to make but just came up short. Kinda sad

Ps in terms of pressure matches would have preferred them to have won RG

Kirilenko is one of my least favourite players but I think she and Nadia deserved the spot.

Every time I checked the scoreboard Kops-Jones seemed to lose her serve on a double fault.

Thank goodness

Looking forward to how the Americans do next season and if they become a consistent top team.

Well deserved. Love Racquel and Abi but they didn't really deserve to be in the YEC over Kiri/Nads.

Agreed.

It's also quite clear they raised their games a lot in the SF. I really thought the Americans were going to win as they defeated two very in-form teams in the first round and QF while Kirilenko/Petrova made a complete hash of a very kind draw. Glad to see they came through.

Re: Moscow SF: (2)Kirilenko/Petrova d. Kops Jones/Spears 7-5 6-4

Gotta say that i'm really about this loss. But hey, gotta still give a big to Nads & Maria K on playing a solid match. Congrats on making YEC

Abi & Rocky Even though i'm down about this loss, there is really no need to be that sad. Even with being one of Rocky & Abi's biggest supports, at the beginning of the year i would have never in my wildest dreams thought they would be fighting for a YEC spot during the final week of the season . Congrats to them on an amazing season! Hopefully they'll build on this and have an even better 2013 season... GL!
