Almost choked it away.

Nice win. Keothavong was gracious at the net.

Re: Auckland SF: Vesnina def. Keothavong 67(3) 61 75

Anne soooooo close

Anne didn’t serve particularly well today, which I think was key. To make things worse, Vesnina hit some great returns.

The match started slow, Vesnina quicker off the mark, but Anne twice fought back from a break down to take the set. The second was a whitewash Keothavong went awol and Vesnina hit some impressive winners. The final set was tense! Both women held onto serve well up until 3-3, then Anne got a bad line call and got broken. I thought the match was over at this point, but she fought back again to level, but then got broken again at 5-5 thanks to a let cord . Despite saving 4 MPs, Anne could not break, Elena took it on MP #5

Good week for both ladies though, plenty of positives to take from this event
Anne - career high.
Elena - first WTA final

Phew, I’m knackered and off to bed now

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

I thought Anne would break in the last game.

That let cord in the game where Anne was broken at the end was so cruel

Congrats on a great week Anne. Keep on improving

So close, Anne! Had 2 BPs to get to the TB and earlier 2 GPs to go 6-5* up. Good luck in Hobart now!
Well done Lena and good luck in the finals!

COME ON! She is playing so well! I bet she gets a set off her doubles partner

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Wow 2009 started great for me, what a dramatic match! I think both played well and deserved to win, they were whacking the ball, a lot of great rallies... Congrats for Vesnina, now win the whole thing!

she is playing well but she was so nervous. maybe it was the pressure of getting to her first final but hopefully the moment wont get to her.

I only watched from 4-4 on in the last set but Vesnina was absolutely teeing off on her backhand. Pretty amazing stuff.

Both these girls could reach the 4th round at the AO with a good draw IMO.
