I am happy for Svetlana as she's into her second US open final, and third grand slam final overall.

But I was not impressed with her ugly win over Anna today. The amount of unforced errors she made was atrocious, and luckily for her Anna was nervous. Sveta just kept rushing shots and her brain burst. She was going for absolutely out-of-the-question shots and she doesn't have very good shot selection. At times I just wanted to pull her aside and just say, "Svetlana. Just stop rushing!"

That said, I think she has a good chance of beating Justine if she plays conservatively, because if she plays like she did today (35UFE, 19 winners), Justine will win by some huge margin. :help:

I was impressed with Sveta's talent but you are right on the money about the shot selection. I recall one point with the wind gusting in the same direction Sveta ran into the alley to run around her backhand and tried to hit a forehand up the line!!! I was also surprised at how low her serve speed was, though she placed it well, there wasn't a lot of heat.
