Congrats to Simona! In the United States, the Tennis Channel is scheduled to show a women's quarterfinal at 5pm eastern and another one at 7pm eastern. Does anyone know if Simona's match will be shown in one of those two timeslots? (Sharapova/Errani was a walkover so I would think they would air Simona's match)
This is great news, the scheduling is even better for the west coast people like me.
I am ecstatic about this win. I couldn't watch the game obviously but I am looking forward to watching it tonight.
It was fun reading all the comments here though, I felt like reliving the match. I bet many people kind if gave up on Simona early during that
3rd set thinking she was too exhausted. I would have too.
What I noticed in this tournament is the consistency of her 1st service percentage, somewhere above 70%. I also like the number of winners.
Anyway, now against Serena. I think if she wins it would be a miracle. I have no expectations so I will enjoy the match anyway. All I hope for is a good fight from her, maybe winning a set or, if not, at least 3-4 games per set.
