Budapest QF: (2) Cornet def. (WC) Groenefeld 6-2 6-3

Good run though.

Much closer than the scoreline suggests, Anna wasn't able to take her chances. She served poorly for most of the match too, which didn't help. Overall there were some good signs, she continued to fight after huge mental lapses, but Cornet is tough on clay and no one honestly expected Anna to win.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

I'm so glad that she looks like shes getting back on track. Does anyone have recent pictures of her? I'm curious to see her physical condition.

Great win for Cornet. This has got to be her first title.

Well done to ALG for a good week back on a main tour tournament.

ALG looks like she's lost some weight

You know, Cornet has done really well on clay this year, and this is ALG's first main draw event of the year, so good for the both of them.

Does anyone know what other main draw events ALG will play this year? It's nice seeing her come back. I'd love to see her ex-coach eat his words.

Keep at it Anna-Lena!

An expected result really, but congrats to ALG on reaching a WTA QF again cos to be honest I didn't think she would. The way ALG is playing she'll be back in the top 100 very soon.

Congrats Alize!
