Strong comeback from Caro. She hunkered down in the 2nd set and started hitting with more conviction. That little shift in pace got a free-flowing Franci out of her zone, strategy- or timing-wise. The errors in that 2nd set were uncalled for.

Sad to see fatigue be more of a factor in the 3rd. But bravura effort from Fran .

Caro's anticipation is incredible. That gets her as many games, sets and matches as do her mental strength and neutralizing skills.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Good job, Fran.

Go Li Na!

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Fran hit 27 more winners than Wozniacki.

Oh Franny
Thought you could have pulled it off..but seeing that game you lost to let Caro level

Rest up Franny.

The third set was actually very nice tennis. What an effort from Schiavone, but Wozniacki really picked her level up the last two sets.

Franny

It was nice to see Wozniacki's thigh heal itself during the middle of the match.

Fran, great effort!

I'm really surprised Caro made it to the semifinals. People doubted that she would make it past the first round. Really, I just hope Caro doesn't roll over to Na in the SF. At least show some resistance and make it a fun match to watch.

And honestly, I'd rather see Caro in the SF than Fran because I'm sure Fran is depleted of all energy right now.
