Re: US Open 2013 - Haide Simona!

The semi for the semi

GIORGI, Camila ITA (Q) - VINCI, Roberta ITA [10]

HALEP, Simona ROU [21] - PENNETTA, Flavia ITA

or Simona against Italia!

Really, if Simona keeps her concentration I don't see who can stop her, no matter how experienced they are (Vinci and Pennetta) or how strong Giorgi hits the ball.

Kirilenko won't be easy. That's for sure.

Good luck against Kirilenko, I'm sure Simona can take this!

Re: US Open 2013 - Haide Simona!

To be honest, at current form Pennetta is especially dangerous opponent. But Kirilenko won't be easy eather and we all know how much Wozniacki loves USO courts.
NH kind of Simona can defeat anyone in this part except peak Pennetta (or Kuznetsova but she is far from her best)

Re: US Open 2013 - Haide Simona!

Is Pennetta really playing that well?

Re: US Open 2013 - Haide Simona!

It's more than coincidence, isn't it, that Pennetta looms in Halep's future, since one of the few blemishes on Halep's recent record is the retirement in Baastad, against Pennetta. But then Pennetta had to retire in New Haven. And is ranked, now, #83. Nor would I underestimate Kuzy.

So it is best not to look beyond Kirilenko. I predict a tight match. By the way, it looks to me like that match won't be played until Saturday?

I must confess, haven't seen any of her two matches this year, but if she's just about as good as few times in the past in the USO (2011 for example when she defeated Sharapova), then is VERY dangerous. I also remember her 2009 season when she was exceptionally good even on clay and on hard courts that year she was defeating top 10 players one after another.

Does anybody else remember this kind of Flavia? I doubt she's at her peak, but according to the scorlines...

Re: US Open 2013 - Haide Simona!

Pennetta played more than 2 matches this year

And yes, she played very good yesterday against Errani, but she's hardly the player who reached the quarterfinals at the US Open 2 years ago. I still think Simona could have beat her in straight sets in Bastad if she was 100%.

Anyway, next one for Simona is Kirilenko and it won't be an easy match, for sure.

Yeap, tomorrow. She'll only play doubles today.

I don't want her to waste energy on doubles.
