High quality stuff out there. So proud of Jelena. Never looked like giving up. Complete turn around in the attitude department compared to the Bouchard match in Tokyo.

Much needed points for ranking, and YEC. Moves back into top 10 officially because of Marion losing points here, but this makes it a little more secure.

Get some much needed rest JJ. You deserve it

Hope Lucie is okay physically. She was completely drained the last 3 games of the match, and I don't think it was 100% due to JJ's defensive abilities...

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

Lucie blew a couple deciding points.

JJ closed it out well when serving for the match.

So happy JJ won this, SO HAPPY. She's showing fight and heart and served it out like a B.O.S.S
Those are pretty decent ratios.

Lucie had chance after chance to take control and win the match late. But in all honesty, Lucie looked sick, and wore down quickly in the 3rd set. Jelena fought to take control of the match late in the 3rd set, although honestly Jelena looked like she too was not feeling well either, but she had more than Lucie physically and served better in the final 2 games in the final set to win the match.

Onto the semi-finals for JJ ...

Safarova you dumb bitch.

Couldn't hold serve when it mattered the most.

Ugh.

Still, good run for Lucie after the Quebec title with back-to-back QF here and in Tokyo.

But useless in the key moments today. NID. She looked tired as well.

The Empress says this to yet another victim:





Jankovic

Solid in the last two sets. Better in the important points.

The YEC gets a BYE. Well done girl.

Send flowers to Maria, please.

Karolina

Another win for the Empress of BeijJing

Possible chance for revenge against Na Li.
