Berlin SF: [13] Dinara Safina def. Vika Azarenka 64 61



Dinara continues her amazing run. Amazing quality first set.

Safina hit 19 winners to 7 unforced errors in the first. Huge hitting and amazing shots.

Vika got injured (?) towards the end of the second set, couldn't move very well and crying a bit

Seeing as they're due to meet in the 1st round of Rome, Vika may not play Rome

Good luck in the final !

Re: Safina def. Azarenka 64 61

i hope safina wins the whole ting, she'd so deserve it.

azarenka played great up to 4:3, then her level dropped to shocking lows. it even looked a bit like a tank or injury towards the end, including tears et al ...

DINARA YOU ARE AMAZING!
Best week of the year for me, this has just been surreal. Never saw this coming.

Take the title you fat, untalented, acne-ridden, bad-mouthed Ruskie!

Yeah Safina seems to be the most deserving of the remaining four.

Re: Safina def. Azarenka 64 61

Good win for Safina. Azarenka was playing so well, but she got tight at the end of the first set and made some embarrassing net attempts. In the second set, Safina continued to play well, but Azarenka's level dropped. She could barely move at the end, so I hope she isn't injured.

Safina in the final of Berlin!

Great fight from Dinara from 3:4* down!

Viktoria was almost in tears at the end.

Now hoping for an all Russian final!
