Birmingham Semis Photos

Here are the photos i took at Birmingham today, they're not great but still...

1st semi: Vera Zvonareva def Meilen Tu 5-7 6-4 6-3

this was a decent match-it was a shame tu fatigued in the 2nd set + she slipped and picked up another injury (she already had her thigh strapped), she led 4-1 in the 2nd and i thought she just might pull it off. bepa was up to her usual antics-but no tears though. I thought meilen was slightly the better player up until her injury-but still a great week for her!

tu:

2nd semi: Jamea Jackson def Maria Sharapova 6-4 6-4

congrats to jamjam on her first tour final she simply outplayed maria today-sharapova wasnt at her best but to be fair she didnt play that badly, jamea just played extremely well. it seemed like when maria was on top in a rally jamea had the movement and the recovery shots to regain the advantage-but with maria, as has been noted a million times, although her movement has improved a lot, her defence isnt great.
it was great to see jamea so happy after the match-hope she wins the final

maria:








jamjam:

doubles semi: Jelena Jankovic/Li Na def Bethanie Mattek/Mashona Washington 6-3 6-4

jelena and na seemed to be enjoying themselves on-court whereas mashmash and beth seemed to be taking it much more seriously. there were some good points at net as usual with the doubles. mattek and washington were playing a more traditional style of doubles-serve/volleying all the time, i think that suited jelena and na-they hit some smokin' returns, the americans needed to mix it up a bit more rather than giving them a target all the time

mashmash:



beth:


mashmash/beth:



jelena:



na:





jelena/na:




overall it was a great day! Shame I didn’t get to see any of peng/tu vs craybas/huber but it only lasted 3 games anyway… I’d recommend this tourney to anyone! As well as the matches, I saw Navratilova, pratt, li ting and panova (I think it was her-she was short and blond so I reckon it was Tatiana) practising
