PYW - Beijing | Semi Finals | Please vote!

PYW - China Open



Welcome to Beijing! A week packed with PYW action. Portoroz and Kolkata also host WTA events; Jounieh and Albuquerque play host to two large ITF events. The biggest event held this week, however, is the China Open in Beijing. Here the absolute stars fight for the most points.
But don't forget to vote for these events as soon as you can!

Quote:
Ranking of the remaing participants:

21. Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER
27. Marta Domachowska POL
39. Na Li CHN
86. Tian Tian Sun CHN





The favourites:



1. Tatiana Golovin FRA [7]




2. Venus Williams USA [3]



3. Ai Sugiyama JPN




4. Shinobu Asagoe JPN



5. Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER [9]

And then there were four... It's semi-final time and the public will have a though time cheering today. None other than local favourites Na Li and Tiantian Sun are squaring of against eachother for that long awaited final place. In the other semi final sole surviving 'top favourite' Anna-Lena Groenefeld will cross swords with Marta Domachowska.


Na Li
The highest ranked player from a country that offers shelter to one and a half billion people. Yes, Na Li has something to be proud of in her life. The finalist of the Dubai Duty Free Open this year is well on her way to do one better in her home country. Since Li defeated Lindsay Davenport at the US Open, she has won more matches than she ever hoped for. Will Beijing be her 'moment de gloire'?


Tiantian Sun
There is however another Chinese player who'll want to shine in her home country. Sun, a high profiled doubles player, has got that one thing extra that opponent Li hasn't got: the experience of winning a title. Guangzhou torpedoed her in the top 30 last year, but when the fourth Grand Slam of this year came around, Tiantian had to settle for a mere hundred and second place. Will history repeat itself and launch her again into the hights of the PYW rankings?


Marta Domachowska
The one and only succesfull Polish player on the PYW circuit. Just like Tiantian Sun, Domachowska won her first and for now last title at Seoul during the fall of 2004. But, in contradiction to Sun, the Polish beauty continued to play on a regular basis and therefore stayed in the higher regions of the PYW ladder. Can Marta Domachowska find the form that led her to that title in South Korea last year?


Anna-Lena Grönefeld
And then there is the last top favourite standing: Anna-Lena Grönefeld. The German ninth seed took Davenport's place at the beginning of the tournament and hasn't regretted that for one second. She overcame everything and everyone and finds herself in the semi finals of a PYW tournament for the second time in as many weeks. Last week she won the title, can she do it again?

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
