Congratas to Iveta.. Still a very nice tournament for AMY. Hopefully she will be fully rested for the Ausie Open and she can do some damage on her way to her 500th win this year...12 to go...

Great comeback from Amy in the second set though. I thought she was gone for sure.

Well done Iveta.

Think you will be able to pass Santangelo, but if you face Kraijeck in the final........

Too bad for Amy. Benesova is one of these miserable looking players who looks like she has to shovel shit for a living rather than play a sport where she gets paid handsomely. Sounds like quite a heated match, not something you come across too often involving Amy Frazier :


Benesova outguns Frazier

11jan06


CZECH Iveta Benesova claimed the last Hobart International semi-finals berth after knocking out fourth seeded American Amy Frazier in an emotion-charged match tonight.

In a clash rife with contentious line calls and ten breaks of serve, Benesova held firm to win 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-4) to reach her third Hobart semi-finals.

Benesova, who is seeded fifth and ranked No.50 in the world, said it was a tough win.

"She made me move a lot but then I said to myself that I had to be more dominate and I started putting more power in my balls," she said. Benesova will face Italy's Mara Santangelo in tomorrow's match.

You're all right. She is a beautiful woman, but she certainly never looks happy while she's playing.
