Two Kazakhs in the semifinals of a WTA event

That has to be a first, surely..?

Of course some people don't agree with the way that Kazakhstan recruit their players, but you can't deny that both Karatantcheva and Shvedova compete with the KAZ next to their name.

Re: Two Kazakhs in the semifinals of a WTA event

Yes, of course it is the first time two players playing for Kazakhstan reach the semifinals of a WTA event. However, they are not Kazakhs. Wait until Zarina Diyas starts reaching WTA semifinals to make this distinction.

Re: Two Kazakhs in the semifinals of a WTA event

So when Diyas makes a WTA semifinal I should make a thread about two Kazakhs making the SFs of the one WTA event?

Anyway, if they compete with Kazakhstan next to their name, it's good enough for me.

Well aren't you clever. My meaning was clear enough.

Obviously you wouldn't do that if Diyas made the semis of a WTA event.

Great for Kazakhstani tennis, hopefully it makes some impact back home.

What's your definition of 'long'?

Wow. Didn't you just blow everyone's mind with this incredible revelation.

They're Kazakhstani representatives. The reasons why they're Kazakhstani representatives don't change the fact that 2 players representing Kazakhstan are in the semis of the same tournament for the first time.
