Marina is into the final of Memphis, defends all of her points from the tournament last year beating quality opposition along the way

Re: Marina Erakovic Cheering Thread

it's been a fantastic week for Marina, I knew she would do well since saving MP in her first round match! She's got nothing to lose against Sabine, I think it will be a good match. If Sabine is on I think she will win. But she has also been known to get tight so Marina is definitely in with a shot if she keeps the pressure on

Did I think she would beat Beck and Stefanie... yes, but she had to save a match point against Beck. Certainly didn't think she would beat Sofia or Jamie, and Sabine is easier than both of them in my opinion. I think Marina has a very genuine chance at winning tomorrow, all three of their matches so far have gone to three sets and I think Marina has the mental edge. My prediction - Marina wins 4-6 7-5 6-3.

Wow big call, I hope you're right! Marina is definitely the underdog so this might suit her

Marina is one of the few players who tends to play her best tennis when she's the underdog. Win or lose, I'm expecting a fantastic match.

Hoping Marina wins, thinking Sabine will.

Both will be somewhat nervous, but past results tell me Marina is even nervier than Sabine. She lost a final to Zahlavova Strycova.

Agreed.

I think Sabine will take this today, but I really hope I'm wrong.

This years run has been much more impressive than last year I beleive. Although last year she had a better chance in the final I felt.

Good to get a week of quality tennis. First title would be nice, get over thn hurdle and then concentrate on getting into the top 40.

Re: Marina Erakovic Cheering Thread

Congratulations Marina I am so proud of her! Such a great confidence booster at the beginning of the year for her

it's a shame Sabine couldn't play it out but a win is a win .

She has lived far more of her life in New Zealand than in Croatia, and I believe she first picked up a racquet here too. Plus, she considers herself a kiwi through and through, we are very lucky to have her
