Polona Hercog def. Dinara Safina 6-0 1-6 7-6[1]

Congrats Polona on making the semifinals.
The first 2 sets were dominant from Polona in the first and Safina in the second. They both played their best and gave it their all in the third set and it went to the tiebreak, unfortunately for Safina, she didn't have much left in the tank and lost it 7-1.

Maria Sharapova def. Marta Domachowska 7-5 6-3

:hysteric: Sorry Marta. Bad day in the office. Still hasn't gotten over the doubles loss.
She was 5-3 up in the first set but then lost the next 4 games.
Nothing was working for Marta, everything she threw at Maria, Maria could do better. Sheer determination from the Russian, so focused going into the final. Where she will take on Arantxa Rus.

It's all because of OOP :devil:

In first match she's thinking about her match against Maria, so she lost doubles. In match against Maria she's thinking about her lose in previous match.

Girls are really complicated people.

Feb 20th, 2011, 01:23 PM
And the interesting thing is.

Laura Robson and Jarka Groth was number 2 in their group
So was Kim Clijsters and Ana Ivanovic

Maria Sharapova came second in her group and so did Arantxa Rus.

So no one who came out on top in the Round Robin group made the finals :lol:

Well there you go.
This team was thrown together at the last minute and they worked together perfectly.
Ana/Kim lead 5-1 in the third set and Ana choked on her serve, ball toss was all over the place.
She got herself together and finished the match with a forehand winner down the line.
