Beijing QF: [9]Ostapenko d. Cirstea 6-4 6-4

A repeat of the scoreline from their USO meeting. For all her calamitous serving, Jelena has this ability to serve out sets and matches with relative ease. Sorana helped her along with too many errors of her own.

That's over 1,000 points so far in the Asian swing, which is not too shabby.

Next up, there's the little matter of a French Open final rematch.

To the haters who said she will fade away after RG and won't win anything. GOATapenko is now getting close to world #5.

Her game is delightful to see. If only she can work on that atrocity of serve during the winter break, she will be on top of the game for a long time coming.
Her capacity to produce winners is just amazing. Looking forward to see her match against Halep!

Re: Beijing QF: [9]Ostapenko d. Cirstea 6-6 6-4

Three consecutive SFs for the first time in her career! The start of an Ostapenko who can consistently perform week-in, week-out? That would be exactly what the WTA needs.

One match away from the top 5, but it's looking like she'll get there sooner rather than later anyway.

Pull out of Linz now.

Aļona hit several good winners especially drive volleys.

It was also nice to see that Sorana is getting back to top 40.

After the flop in NA this Asian Swing has been great for Aljona. With the exception of Kvitova this tournament is totally on her racquet.

Btw she actually does seem to have quite a lot of friends on tour actually. At first I thought she was unpopular but it seems TF is the only place where she's not liked (surprise).

Re: Beijing QF: [9]Ostapenko d. Cirstea 6-6 6-4

Really solid off the ground from Aljona even though her serve was bad again and Cirstea returned really well. It's good to see her winning in straight sets The SF against Halep should be great

Only one win from Top 5 is quite incredible too. Not only does she look likely to push quite deep at Singapore, but with no real points to defend until Charleston next year she could get right to the top

She is a doubles partner with Sori. Hence this intimacy between them.
