I'm not knocking her performance - a semifinal in any WTA tournament, with any field, is a great achievement for someone in Marina's position.
We'll I'm glad you see it that way

Btw the 2nd story on the 6pm news (in 3 minutes time) is going to be Marina advancing through to the Semfinals of Memphis. Not quite as good as Auckland when seh was the top story, dam I wish that Wife killing/child abandoning guy had have been caught yesterday instead

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Marina's win over Bepa was hardly shocking to me. Bepa has always been inconsistent and really anyone in the top 100 could have beaten the old her (loving the new and improved Bepa ) But i agree that Kvitova's win over Venus was the upset of the year so far, I'd also be tempted to lean towards Lisicki's win over Davenport in Fed Cup, but if Marina could triumph over Davenport it would definately be top 3 upsets so far.

How could you think Erakovic def. Zvonereva could be more of an upset than Erakovic def. Davenport?

Because Vera Zvonareva was a finalist in the previous two years at the ASB Classic. Vera said in a number of interviews that Auckland was one of her favourite tournaments of the year and that's why she so strongly backed it to remain on the schedule from 2009 onwards.

On top of that this is Marina's second semifinal, she will be better mentally prepared than she was last time...

Marina needs to get her serve going, otherwise Lindsay will most likely overpower her.

Make Lindsay MOVE too!!

Marina won something like 80% of points off her first serve at the end of the second set and the entire third set. If she can do this against and get Lindsay moving side to side then she definately has a chance to beat her.
Marina may also need to get into the net more, the reality is that Lindsay can overpower Marina from the baseline.

Marinas match will probably start in around 30 mins (currently 3-3 in the third set of the match before her's)

Re: Semifinal on at the moment!

Well Marina lost 6-0 6-3 to Linds, but she really has done herself proud by making a SF outside of NZ
