Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012

Sweet upset, Nadia !

Errani was leading 6-3 4-1. And Nadia won 3-6 7-5 6-3

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Quote:
The No.17-seeded Petrova was the first of the pair to advance, though she had to pull off a Houdini act to do it - down 63 41 and double faulting to face a point for a 63 51 deficit, the Russian flipped the switch just in time, battling back to make it past No.6 seed Sara Errani in three grinding sets, 36 75 63.

"You never want to leave the court without giving everything you have, so even at a set and 4-1 down I still believed I could turn it around," Petrova said. "I was very happy to win this match."

Petrova, who is currently ranked No.18 in the world but is a former World No.3, is through to her biggest WTA semifinal in three years, since Beijing in 2009.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012

Wow, Nadia ran over Stosur, 4 & 2 H2h is now 6-3.

Who will she meet in the final? Angie or Aga?

She beat Aga in Tokyo in 2008, in her only win (1-3). She and Angie have never played.

Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012



Another Top 10 win for Nadia !

Head To Head against Stosur now 6-3. Solid performance from Nadia. Stosur was poor. Consistently attack Stosur`s weak backhand with high topspin was very smart. 9 Aces, no DF. 1st Serve % was only 36 % but Nadia still won in 2 sets. lol

Still can`t believe Nadia reached Tokyo final. What a dream week

Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012

Can`t believe Nadia improved her footwork/movement so much. Moved so fast. Also Nadia looks really fit. Ricardo Sanchez seems to be the perfect coach for Nadia. He motivates her, and gets involved watching her matches. That`s what Nadia needs. Very happy and proud of her.

Nadia played amazing in the 1st set. Showed all her talent. Simply beautiful tennis. Controlled aggression. Definitely one of the best sets I`ve seen her play. 16 Winners, only 3 UEs. Very strong on serve and return. Winning a set 6-0 against a Top 5 player like Aga is very impressive.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012

Nadia was probably extremely exhausted going into Beijing.

She fell to #7 Na Li, 1 & 2, the first time she'd ever lost to her. Now 6-1 h2h.

Re: Nadia`s last tournaments of 2012

Never in doubt Break Points Won: only 1 of 8

Li was a very tough draw. And Nadia must be tired after the exhausting Tokyo week.
