Polona & Jarkko - wow, it's so great to have both players in final. And same with Lucic Fan.
Anna & Roger
The most fair would be one title for each. But I wouldn't have nothing against if both my players win it. So, as Lucic Fan wouldn't have nothing against if his players take it. Good luck in final!
And this deserve an article for sure ... but right now I just see my bed ... hopefully tomorrow I will find some time to write it. Gosh, hate time when I'm (back) at uni.

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova

Polona Hercog with outstanding comebacks in quarterfinal and semifinal, reach her first final of season in Sydney

Slovenian Polona Hercog is having one of her best week ever on NTT tour. After two wins in straight sets in first and second round, she had to play 3 sets in quarterfinal and semifinal. And these weren't just »easy« 3 setters. In quarterfinal Polona played against Dane Caroline Wozniacki. In first set Polona allready led with 3-1 but lost next 5 games and first set with 3-6. Similar situation was in second set – Hercog was 3-0 up but then Wozniacki won next 5 games to lead 3-5. At this point it looked it's over for number 5 seed. But then … Polona somehow tied up to 5-5, Wozniacki won next game, but Polona managed to make second set into tiebreak. It has to be mentioned that Hercog saved 3 match points in second set. Also tiebreak was pretty close, but Polona won it with 7-5. 3rd set was very one sided. Polona started great and led with 4-0 and was able to finish this match with 6-3 in final set. »Wow, it's hard to believe. I played so well, but on other side was Caroline who played even better in first and half of second set. I don't know how I was able to play so good at key points. Usually I suck when it comes to important points but this time I was so calm. I'm so happy that I defeated one of hottest player on tour right now.« Polona said after her quarterfinal. Then she didn't know how hard match wait her in semifinal.



Her semifinal opponent was Anna Chakvetadze who defeated second seed Maria Sharapova in quarterfinal 5-7, 6-1, 6-1. Polona started semifinal match perfect. Without bigger problems she won first set with 6-3. But then situtation reversed. Chakvetadze started to play great, hitting winners all over the court and took second set 6-2. And again it seemed it's over for young Slovenian when Chakvetadze was 2-5 up in final set. And then Polona changed her game plan, start to force errors from Chakvetadze who was more and more nervous from point to point. And Polona was succesfull, she won next 5 games and semifinal match 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. Hercog saved another 3 MPs in this match. »It's incredible. 2 matches in a row where I was so close to be out. But I'm not. I'm in final. So exicted.« was happy Hercog.



In final she is going to play against the best player on tour, number 1 seed Mirjana Lučić from Croatia which didn't lose set on tournament so far. »She will be really difficult to beat. She is playing so great. All her matches were in straights, she had bye in first round. She spent just 6 hours on court whole week. Just my quarterfinal and semifinal together lasted 6 hours. I'm tired but in final there is no time for tiredness. I really want win this tournament. It would be so great to go to Australian Open with such a great victory. But also if not I'm happy I finally find my game again.« said before final 5th seed which will try to make head2head against Lucic to 3-2. They played 4 times before and both of them has 2 wins. Who is going to be Sydney champion? Croatian or Slovenian?

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova
