Marina Erakovic makes the final in Beijing!
Marina Erakovic has just beaten Yung-Jan Chan 6-4 7-6 to reach the biggest final of her career so far.
To many this may come as a surprise, although if you look back at Marinas performances of late you can see that shes won two out of her last three tournaments, even though her ranking is around the 220 mark. With this win she moves closer to a top 150 spot, after unofficially entering the top 200 for the first time of her career yesterday beating former top 20 player Iroda Tulyganova in two very convincing sets (6-1 6-1).
Ive always said Marina has as much talent as many of the top 50 players on tour at the moment, her win today further shows this.
Shes also playing in the doubles final today, which is her best doubles performance since winning three grand slam doubles titles in juniors.
Best of luck to Marina Erakovic in the final, I hope to see you with that winners cheque for the third time this year.
Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.
