Vera's serve was outstanding while Iveta's was quite bad. It made all the difference.

Amazing performance:bowdown:, breadsticking Benesova who was playing the tennis of her life. Now please go on to thrash Kvitova as well.

kind of expected. Iveta is playing good and consistent but just doesn't have enough power to beat a good defensive player like Zvonareva. Would be an interesting match tho against Kvitova.

That was pretty awful for the set and a half that I watched.

Uhm, Iveta played really good tennis in the earlier rounds but was unfortunately pretty much her usual self today. ;)

Vera's defense is unbelievable. Iveta hit some serious angles but she had all the answers.

Second set :worship:

Now I have to choose between Bepa and Petra :confused:

Wow, no one cared about this match. How long did it take to post.

Anyway, Iveta played okay; it was just Vera played lights-out tennis. Nothing that Iveta could do :shrug:

Vera played lights-out tennis.

:unsure:

Vera has been defending well, but really she's been way too passive this week.

This next match depends on Petra. Vera needs her to have an off day.

I don't think Petra played that great against Pennetta. Too many UFEs. It's just that Flavia played worse. Petra "won ugly" as the saying goes, but Vera will make her pay if her groundstrokes are off.

Good match from Vera. Iveta played pretty well, but really seems to lack confidence in her game (at least it seemed that way to me when she had that early break).

Vera will need to step up her offensive game to hang with Petra. That will be a big match.

Good luck to her. She's good enough to win this tournament.

Vera can play A LOT better than she did today. Hopefully she did. It was a pretty pedestrian affair out there.

Bepa AO draw (quarter) is even more ridiculous than at USO last summer, but fact that she is in the same half with Clijsters at end will be probably main (only?) reason why she not reach 3rd consecutive Grand Slam final.

Uh...this. Are we the only ones not that impressed?

Vera needs to step it up the next round against the basher.

Well, in a tournament with lots of highly competitive matches and many exciting upsets this was that rare thing....a routine win for the favourite. Oh well.

I can't complain too much. Iveta has had a great tournament and she did play the match of her life against Pavlyuchenkova. But after teasing us by taking a 4-2 lead, Iveta returned to being the player who just lacks that belief to fight on level terms with the top girls. Disappointing but that's life. I'm still really pleased Iveta made it to the 4th round. As for Vera, well I would love for Iveta to have beaten her today, but she's okay, I like her too. She played very well today also. Well done to her. :yeah:

She had a good draw, so no surprise she is in the Finals. Good luck Vera:)

Nice try from Ivie. She suddenly stopped at 4-2 1st set and stared making UE's... But still, well done baby Iveta!

Was at the match, Vera wasn't that impressive.

She was very nice at the end though when she signed my tennis ball :)

Iveta. :( Should've finished off the first set. R4 is a good result nonetheless.

Good win for Bepa over a tricky opponent who had been on fire this tournament. :yeah: Great defence as always, but Vera will need to bring more aggressive tennis in the coming rounds.

Vera into QF of AO!:bounce::bounce:

Crazy first set: 2-0 -> 2-4 -> 6-4

Benesova was not an easy opponent. She beat Kirilenko and Pavlyuchenkova.

IMO Vera played pretty well. Aggressive when needed and great defence.
One forehand longline winner from the defence was amazing.

2nd QF for Vera at the AO.:angel:

Do your best against dangerous Kvitova, Vera!;)

Vera loves lefties. Bammer, Safarova, Benesova :wavey:

Kvitova next? :devil:
