Maria You could've actually won this.
At least she's obviously improving imo. QF is already good I guess.

Re: Bastad QF: Caroline Wozniacki def. Maria Kirilenko 75 76(4)

Maria played a lot better than their meeting at Wimbledon, but her game still lacks the power to trouble any of the top players. Everytime she was given half a chance she'd just choke it away with some poor unforced errors, like serving for the set in the 2nd set at 5-4 i just knew she wouldn't be able to hold. Against Wozniacki you need to be take the game to her and be aggressive but Maria's lack of power causes her to be unable to open up the court most of the time against a decent defender.

WD to Caro for making the semis but she played even worse than last time. Good effort by Kirilenko though , definetely pushed her.

Good fight, but she choked big time when serving for 2nd set at 5-3

Good to see Maria playing better, but she really should have brought that match to a 3rd set.

Maria if only she weren't such a mental midget. She did well. Could have easily won the first set and then of course the 2nd set too.

Well done Caroline.

Maria was the better player in the 2nd set before that inexplicable choke serving at 5-3. Two easy shots into the net and a d/f saw her broken to 15. If she can't take those sorts of chances against a top player, there's no much she can do.

Maria could have won this in straights but whatever. Played some nice points and some careless ones at times.

Nice job, Caro.
