USO QF: [4] S.Williams defeats [12] Ivanovic 6-1 6-3

Highlights:


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

A close match from beginning to end. I did not know who would win until MP.

Re: USO QF BOMBSHELL!!!!!1!: Ivanovic gets her revenge on Serena, wins 4 games (6-1 6

LOL. Expected result.

Sarin

Bye, Ana. Too local for the QF stage of a major. You are lucky you had such a cake draw.

Ana is just so horrible, can't serve, can't return, hit so many errors, even FH is so inconsistent

~~Lucie Safarova ~~Michaella Krajicek ~~Nadia Petrova ~~

~~JJ~~Dani~~Lena B~~

~~Nicole~~Nastya~~Lena D~~

Ana gave a good account of herself. Return/ground game of Serena's went a bit off in that second.

Please don't utterly rape Errani, there'll be time for that at the YEC.

Yuryevna,
Always

Amazing from Serena in the first.

Second should've been closer but.. ah well. Ana needed more first serves to be competitive.

Grats Rena and well done for a great tournament for Ana!

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović

This match was so close to actually being exciting. If only Ana served at 60% instead of 40% for most of the match and didn't make wild FH errors at the most inopportune moments.
