Really, oh I mixed up the draw again, I guess. My bad.

Defeated Govortsova 2-6 6-1 6-3

from GM:

I really don't understand Sorana's mindset here. After going down miserably yesterday against Lourdes in that first set with low percentage tennis, she's doing exactly the same crap again today. Yes, Olga is a different kind of player, but still there were only 5 rallies on Olga's serve in the opener that went over more than 3 shots. She won nearly all of them, but hammered a good dozen of returns mile into the out. With a performance like the one there, she would struggle against nearly any player out there. Ironically, she is swearing the whole time at herself for not going so much risk again on the next try, but the same story again and again and she keeps on swearing.

However, this time again, she somehow noticed that it can't go on like that, took some pace off her strokes and tried to rally with big success, hitting some clean winners on both sides as well as some good droppers and you don't believe it - Olga is also hitting unforced errrors if you let her.

Came back from 1-3 in the 3rd as well with that tactic, although Olga was godawful at the end, no 1st serves, no consistency on bh or fh, some really loose shots mixed with a deflated body language and poor shot selection.

Sorana really has to be awake from the start of her semifinal match tomorrow. There are players other than Lourdes and Olga that won't allow her such a comeback again.

Wish she would develop a brain in the first sets. By the way, the tournament is live on Digi Sport 3.

Well done Sori. Domi will be tough. The tennis balls will get smacked pretty hard in that match.

Lost 1-6 1-6

Well, Dominika is no jetlaged Polona, Lourdes or Olga and even she was average at best today...

Pathetic serving, pathetic returning. However, reaching the semifinal is already a result exceeding my expectations for this tournament in her regard, so she should forget about this one like she did with the Watson match and focus on Stuttgart Q.
