In the 5 tournaments world number one Kim Clijsters played since July, she only lost before the final in two of them. The Belgian first seed is THE most popular player ever in PYW and if she continues to play like this, she will have beaten Hantuchova's tournament record AND number of weeks on #1. But let's stay in the present time: semi final against new found tennis darling Magdalena Maleeva. The almost retired Bulgarian can count on heaps of sentimental votes from fans and non-fans who want to see her shine once more.

Another soon to be retired player is title defender Silvia Farina Elia. In her first semi final since months, the Italian is hoping to go out on a high note. Unlike Maleeva, Silvia hasn't announced her retirement, but the way things look on the real tour... The prima donna could be 'enduring' the last matches of her rather short PYW existence. So the question is: will Dinara Safina be the one to squeeze the live out of Farina Elia's tennis career? If she continues the way she's been playing like she has done over the course of this week, it could happen. Will it be arriverdeci for Silvia?
