Re: ~Petra Martic~
Wow, *very* impressive. I didn't expect Petra to beat Panova (ranked #233) in R1 yet she won in straight sets. I definitely didn't expect her to beat Flipkens (#145; #5 seed) in R2 yet she won again in straights. And again, I didn't expect her to beat Pivovarova (#178) in the QFs yet she won easily, again in straights. Petra hasn't lost a set this week and all her matches have been against opponents ranked much higher!
Her next opponent, Jovanovic, has also been playing well this week (beat Mamic 61 63, then beat the #4 and #6 seeds) and also is ranked much higher than Petra (#272 vs #371). Still, Jovanovic is ranked lower than the other players Petra beat this week so if she plays well again she has a good chance to win.
Regardless of what happens tomorrow, this has been an excellent tournament for Petra. It's her best result ever (29 ranking points) and she will move into the top 300 for the first time (to around #285-290). Also, I'm really glad to see her regaining her form from late last year. This girl is good and seems to be the real thing but I was becoming concerned because she hadn't had great results this year.
