Good win for Kim, now if Serena can get past Shaughnessy, I will get ready for a train wreck!

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Franšoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Congrats Kim, Myskina often troubles her so this was a good win.



Nice tournament Myskina, you FINALLY beat Rubin (well overdue) and proved everyone wrong that said you didn't deserve a top 8 seed. You had a better showing than Lindsay and you beat Rubin of course. Everyone was saying they should have had a higher seeding.



Too bad someone had to lose here. I like the both...a lot. But Myskina wouldn't stand a chance against Serena, so go Kim! And go Shaughnessy, tire Serena out!

Well done Kim for making the semi-final.

I hope she will play better in the semi-final because it will be necessary.

I agree. I hope she's out this afternoon hitting with that "human backboard" of hers again!

Good luck Kim!

This result isn't shocking.

Apparently, Kim made a lot of UE's in this match though... gonna have to pull it all together for Serena.

Whatever, as long as Justine wins, I don't care.

Judging from the stats, Myskina wasn't getting many first serves in, and the ones she was getting in weren't very good. Low first service percentages are a big no-no in general, but especially with a 70 MPH second serve against one of the best returners in the game. It's pretty hard to beat everyone when you win 3 out of 9 service games. Kim controlled the tempo (as she should) but made a few too many errors in the 2nd set. If Myskina held her serve at 4-4, that match could have gone either way. She'll need to step it up against Serena, but I'm confident she will.

Keep up the good work Kimmie!!!



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love


A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep

I agree. Kim's winner/UE ratio wasn't good enough here to make the next step. Hopefully this was her "off" match.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
