Eva Birnerova (CZE) d. Q-Shuai Peng (CHN) 6-4 7-5 :sad: :fiery:
Poor Shuai, a rain delay occured during the first set. At least she can boast a 12 match winning streak. ;)

Great tournament for Eva who has been extremely impressive this week.
Too bad for Shuai but reaching the final is already a good result. Her ranking will definitely jump up next week :D .
I hope she'll be playing some more tourneys right after the Fed Cup in Guangzhou and not start "practicing" in anticipation of the Asian Games in September :( .
I understand she'll be playing mostly ITF tournaments in China given the limited number of tourneys she can play this year (10).

But I'm very happy for Shuai,who will go in top200 at least this year for sure:bounce:
