K-Lina is playing VERY well, hitting great angles and not making many errors, atleast in the secon set, I didn't see the first. However, she's making way too mnay double faults on serve, and when she was up 3-0 she relaxed a little and lost a few games....

Thanks Rtael. It's not like there isn't a live scoreboard or a live score thread.

Way to be (annoying).

Yes, but I happen to be seeing this match live. Go take your sorry ass someplace else.

4-6 5-6 :rolleyes: Sprem is playing very aggressive but makiing too many mistakes and SFE jsut keeps the ball in play until Sprem makes the error.

Why don't you take yours to the score thread where this belongs?

You're creating "chaos"!

Sprem loses 4-6 5-7

Over-all she played well, and aggressive, but got nervous, didn't play the big points well, and got inconsistent at times and hit too many UFE's. still a good try K-Lina! :)

Slivia will loose clear to Kim. Kims´test was the QF against Maggie. She won that and on www.wtatour.com they already wrote, it was half way of the title.

She won that and on www.wtatour.com (http://www.wtatour.com/) they already wrote, it was half way of the title.Crazillo, they wrote that because she won two matches and has two more matches to win. Not because the title was "in the bag". :p

Silvia has proven she can play Kim and although Kim is the clear favorite don't discount Silvia. Everyone thought she'd be crushed last week and she took Kimmie to the brink. :tape:

As for Karolina, I'll have to catch her when she comes to New York for the Open. Sounds like this girl's got game! :)

Do you remember Silvia had 2 match points against Kim last week.

I saw the match too.. it was the first time I saw K-lina play, and I have to say I kinda like the girl :) I'll follow her more closely.

She did make too many mistakes, but we saw some great points too :)

Kiim hasn't won her semi yet:rolleyes: Casanova could beat her....... and even if Kim does beat her she is going to have to lift her level a lot for Farina, Kim hasn't played well all week. I don't know how Farina's form was in this match obviously cause I couldn't watch it but I think that if Kim makes the final unless she really picks up her game Farina will win.

(8) Silvia Farina Elia (ITA) d. Karolina Sprem (CRO) 65 74

This is the score from the WTATour website. I just thought this was a strange score to have in a tennis match.

I think Maggie is a better player than Farina amd indoors all the way. When Kim beats Maggie, Kim beats Silvia, too. The match last week was the worse indoor match Kim played in the last two years.

True but unfortunately Kim is playing the same way this week. Hopefully she will be able to pick it up like she did in the later part of Paris.

Nice win for Silvia who is having a great start to the year. It's wonderful to see so many veterans doing well. I hope she pushes Kim in the final and takes it!!! Silvia is extremely strong and fit (like Kim) and won't be blown away by Kim's power. I think Silvia is also playing with a lot of confidence right now and will take some chances in this match- she needs to in order to win it anyways. I think I remember somewhere that Silvia is trying to add more net play into her game, but I don't know if that's really true? I think it's a skill she has that she uses only against players that are stronger than her from the baseline. This might be a nice change of play against Kim who also seems to struggle with Silvia's low no-pace backhand slice. I hope Silvia does well in this final and continues with good form in Dubai! I think this win should give her a top 8 seed there (hopefully). Anyone have updated rankings?

Silvia looks a bit lackadaisical on that forehand technique ;)

K-Lina did a good job, and i believe could have won here as well, good run well justified, anyways, i'm anticipating her making top 20 come clay, if Farina can take out Kim, which is what i'm hoping to happen, then she'll be the oldest to win a title since a long time ago, let alone a tier II above title

If Silvia plays well she might be able to beat Kim for this title. She took a set off her at Wimbledon last year, the Australian score this year did not reflect how close the match really was, and obviously since she had 2 match points against her last week it is very possible for her to take out Kim. Good luck to her and the other finalist:)
