Alex played a fine 1st set actually with Greta being rather poor, but she held comfortably and took her BPs. The second set was already a bit of a let down, however Arn was able to rise her 1st serve percentage which guaranteed her the win there, but both player already struggled massively with their 2nd serves. But then...
That third set will go down in history as the worst that has probably ever been played in the semifinals of a WTA tournament, seriously it can't be worse than that, absolute comedy. I would have been probably died laughing if I had watched that as a neutral spectator, that was just too good. Neither one could hold serve, Greta and partly Alex DFing the crap out of the ball, while Greta had at least some decent 1st serves in, while Cadantu was just all over the place, however the real deal was when the Hungarian served for the match leading 30:0 just to hit 4 loose shots in a row, but really junior level loose, among those were 2 backhands from the service box straight into the net.
The same story at 5-5 with Arn having 2 GPs just to hit further DFs to make it back to Deuce, and after a wasted GP, on a DF as well, she just dumped 2 forehands without any pressure into the bottom of the net.
Then, when Cadantu served for the match, she had her first MP, but Greta was able to save that one with a great backhand cross winner, getting a BP after Cadantu framed a forehand, just to hit a smash 2 metres wide, followed by 2 very loose returns on Alexandra's '1st serves' to lose it.
I've barely seen a player so poor on the important stages of the match than Greta was today, horrendous. (4/17 BPs)
As for cadantu, this is of course her biggest win of the career setting up a final which completely and literally came out of nowhere. I still have problems to realize that myself, considering from where she came.
I hope she can make it competitive against Babos, but I wouldn't hold my hopes too high to be honest...
