Nice work again Anne :)

Marina that was a disappointing final set considering she had the momentum with the early break points :fiery:

Slutiana

She plays either Wozniacki or Krajicek in the semis, Sean.

Marina :( Almost defended all her points from last year

Keothavong is an improver though. Saw what she did in Auckland earlier in the year.

She won that $50k in Lebanon, that was green clay I think :scratch:

On her website someone asked her if she was looking forward to the clay season and Anne put it wasnt her favourite surface but shes looking forward to the challange. Hopefully she can pick up a few points there :)

You're right, no good wins on clay, although she did win all her matches in the round robin stages of Euro/Africa Zone 1 in last years Fed Cup, and that was played on clay.

Got a bit worried when I saw Anne was down in the second but looks like she regained the momentum. :yeah: Now give it all you've got against Caro, nothing to lose.

Funny scoreline but this was a really hard fought match by both women, surprising that there were so many breaks of serve considering the players and the surface.

Hard luck Marina but well done to anne, hope she wins the tournament now.
