PYW Palermo | Semi Finals | Please vote!
Tennis in Italy is enjoying it's biggest succes of the year. After Modena, we have arrived at the clay tournament of Palermo, Sicily. In wich we have arrived at the semi finals.
The remaining contenders for the PYW Palermo title:
Italy's second best ranked tennisplayer will be looking for a 4th final place this year after Bogota, Acapulco and Modena last week. She won all of them except Modena. Today, she has another chance to win a tournament on home soil. But will she take it?
Together with Pennetta the only titleholder in these semi finals. That title, the Hansol Korea Open, came almost 7 months ago, but it was definitely a succes: she beat Sharapova and AO winner Asagoe on route. She reached a semi and another final afterwards, but finds herself in a serious slump right now, including a loss to Sanchez-Lorenzo in the first round in Wimbledon.
Definitely the most unsuccesful player left in this tournament. The Argentinan baseliner has only 6 wins on record, against 15 losses. But clay is definitely her favourite surface: she reached one semi final in her career in Rabat. Besides that, she rarely reached a 2nd round. Poor Mariana...

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
