Great play from Julia, especially till 61 20* 40-15
1st set was awesome, great winners, good serving, not many UEs, again those great net attacks + lovely bh volleys, no chance for Arvidsson there, who just doesnt have the weapons to beat Julia (had to hope for self destruction
Anyway, after that Julia made a bit more mistakes, while Arvidsson played really solid, almost no UEs from her which made it really tough for Julia. So it could have been everything in 2nd set, 61 62 result was possible, also could have gone to a 3rd set easily but Julia never was too negative, kept fighting and saved many BPs, one break for Arvidsson but immediately broke back and served it out to love then!
Most important for me is that her body language is much better these days, even if she starts to make more UEs, she just has to keep fighting and I am impressed with her double handed backhand volleys this week, hope she continues like that in 2013!!
Anyway, Ivanovic is not in best shape, seems really tired and makes many mistakes and Flipkens is tricky but beatable, so Julia has chances to reach the final but it won´t be easy, she has to be 100% focused again and take her chances, but SF here is good already, she used her good draw but also played good tennis
