Good enough. Small lapse in concentration, but of course Ana seems to love doing that. Kvitova served horribly though, 9 doublefaults.

Another good win for Ana. :clap2: It`s nice to see her winning consective matches for the first time in a while. However she needs to improve on her play before tomorrow`s match against Venus.

Good win for Ana. Petra could be tired from playing all week. Good to see Ana make a QF again!

Ana, that 2nd set was a disgrace :o Should have been 6-0 or 6-1 at least, but a win is a win.

Good luck against Vee, and please serve better :o :hug:

At this point any win, especially in straight sets does Ana a lot of good. Too bad about the wobble in the 2nd set, but at least no problems while serving it out.
Good luck against Venus! :yeah: The pressure shouldn't be on Ana for the first time since forever...
Zurich 2004. The match between them was so awesome, I'd be pleased if we can get quality anywhere near from it tomorrow. But please convert 2 of the SPs Ana this time. ;)

Petra was probably tired from all the tennis she's played this week. It's been awesome for her, well done on getting to top50! :yeah:

Good win for Ana. Petra could be tired from playing all week. Good to see Ana make a QF again!

semi:o

I'm really happy for her!
I think she hadn't had consecutive wins since when? Wimby???
Good for her and her confidence for sure!

Looking forward to her match against Vee:)

Most of it, yeah. Kvitova was just plain horrible. Ana didn't really have to play that well to win this match and she didn't. Her form seems to be improving but she needs to focus on her toss and cut down on these mental lapses (she went from 3-0 40-0 to 4-4 in the second :o)

good thing she broke for 5-4 or else we'd be in a 3rd set now

I saw this on Swiss Tv Ok.No Streams So dont cough on me

Anna Played Agressive and Solid the 1st set While Petra was half asleep making Errors or out.2nd Set Anna continue the same way till 3-0 she start to get nervous and miss shots (some where easy) and making Faults and missing 1st serves.Petra woke up a little with some fhs and bashing balls :rolleyes: But then What should i call this?
Anna regrouped or choking? She play a good shot then miss the next two while Petra gaining confidence.Then at 4-3 Petra starting to Slip and make some errors.Anna regroups with some good shots.the last game Petra ended Pathelic with Ues but Anna did manager to hit a Winner in that Game so that Peroformance is Average good serving in the 1st and near the end,but the little chocking make the performance look average otherwise its perferct Ve Vs Anna should be great or one sided :) :wavey:

Any win is good for Ana, but geesh could she make closing out a match any more difficult. Venus is going to kill her tomorrow if she does anything like that

Ana Ivanovic after defeating Marion Bartoli in Zurich: "It was probably one of the best performances since Paris, but the first set in Moscow I also played well. I need to learn to be patient with myself and to get consistent and not to think too much about mistakes."

Still doing it need to work more :smash:

Still a fantastic week for Petra, breaking the Top50 for the first time and getting another Top20 win. Looking forward to the rest of the season now that she seems to be playing better.

Always bad to see the top players struggle so well done to Ana.
