PYW - Forest Hills | Semi Finals | Please vote!

PYW - Forest Hills



Welcome to Forest Hills! The PYW Tour makes a short stop here just before the US Open. It's the smallest tournament on the calendar with only sixteen players in the draw. The perfect warm up for the Grand Slam to come next week.

Let's have a look at the ranking of the remaining players in the Main Draw:

Quote:
PYW Ranking of the Participants:
*Rankings before Toronto & Bronx

27. Iveta Benesova CZE
46. Akiko Morigami JPN
58. Sania Mirza IND

126. Lucie Safarova CZE
After three days of hard fought matches, PYW Forest Hills has finally reached the stage where there are only four players left. Let me introduce them to you:

Akiko Morigami
The Japanase first seed is slowly making her way up the rankings, trying to join compatriots Sugiyama and Asagoe in the top 20. But to put it lightly, Akiko has still a long distance to travel before experiencing the privileges such position holds. Also, since her incredible final run at the Guangzhou Open last year, Akiko hasn't done much since. A quarterfinal loss at Memphis was considered her best of the year. That is, untill Forest Hills came along.

Sania Mirza
Joining Morigami in the semi's is non other than the most succesfull Indian player ever to star on the PYW Tour. Yes, we're talking about Sania Mirza. Miss Mirza had quite an easy run to the semi finals: she was one of the first in completing her first round match against Peer and quickly swifted past Michaela Pastikova in the quarters. A quick sidenote: Mirza has only been able to win three matches in a row once in her PYW career. At the NASDAQ-100 Open in March. There she lost Clijsters in the 4th round. But we have to admit, Morigami isn't Clijsters...

Iveta Benesova
The highest ranked player who entered this event is still among us. As number 27 in the rankings, Iveta Benesova was and still is considered as THE top favourite for this mini warm up event for the US Open next week. The Czech equals here her career best result, with her third semi on the PYW tour. However, she lost both quite easily.

Lucie Safarova
Whereas the first semi final featured had two equally PYW ranked players, the second has none of them. As stated before, Iveta Benesova is the highest ranked player left and faces now the lowest ranked. Lucie Safarova takes place on spot 120, almost 100 places below her opponent today. The two Czechs have never met before.


Everything is ready is to go, so now it's up to you to vote!


Semi Finals:

Akiko Morigami JPN [1] vs Sania Mirza IND [3]
Iveta Benesova CZE vs Lucie Safarova CZE

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

My votes :

Mirza and Safarova

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
