Re: Shahar in Australia 2012
Beating Hradecka 3&1, playing an 8 hour marathon against a good underrated opponent and coming out on top and taking a set from Chakvetadze (she had to fight there). Although she lost to Wickmayer she played quite well and she has a lot of positives to take from this week.
There's nothing special in making it to the semis with her draw so far.
I haven't had time to watch, but from what I've read currently there's not much of an improvement over last year's decline.
I'd be surprised if she beat Wickmayer.
