Luxembourg SF: Puig def. Mertens 6-2 7-5

Monica was unplayable in the first set. Then, Mertens raised her level and it was a great quality 2nd set.

There was a controversial call in the 2nd set: Monica was serving 4-4 40-Ad, and she hit a CC FH that probably was out, but there is no challenge system in this tournament. Bad luck for Mertens there.

Vamos Monica!!!! Win the final!

Mónica Puig

Despite that godawful call I am happy Monica finally is starting to build some form and confidence after last summer.

I can't believe how calm Elise was after getting one of the worst line calls I've ever seen at the worst possible time.

Still congrats to Monica who has been amazing all week long. Hope she finishes it off tomorrow.

I've said it before, the line calling in Luxembourg is ridiculous

In general it's been going downhill this year, especially in the second half. Are they trying to cut costs associated with the lines people, or what's going on?

Re: Luxembourg SF: Puig d. Mertens 6-2 7-5

These line calls all week are terrible
Was at the tournament on Tuesday & Wednesday and there were also a lot of weird or unlogical calls...

But Monica deserves to be in the final, she's been playing great!

Elise can rest now, good end of a great year for her

Monica, I am proud of you, sweetie!
Elise didn't deserve this punishment with the worst line call ever, but she can be happy with SF, I guess.

So, Monica's gonna slay another german in the final it seems.

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.
