Nicole pretty much collapsed after being up 5-3.

Both weren't their best match points up...

Still, excellent from Ana!

Those last few games pretty much showed us why Ana is currently ranked higher: better player between the ears right now.

Nicole Vaidisova beats my beloved Chokomomo only to choke herself in the next round!
Oh the irony! :awww:

Anyhow, great result for Ana!
Congrats, you're definitely earning your soon to be top five ranking. :hatoff:

However, c'mon Venus in the semifinal. :hearts:

Nicole didn't collapse at 53. Fantastic fighting from Ana saving those match points on her serve. She made it happen at the end. She found her forehand and she improved her movement just when she needs to, so anyone who doubted Ana's fighting abilities and championship mentality needs to look closely again. I think I'm a new fan. :D

Now please kick out Penus!

Congrats to Ana!

Ana showed maturity at the end and she looks confident but with suspect movement I am not sure if she can outhit Venus.I like Venus chances if she plays like today and yesterday .

Yeah, Ana doesn't seem to be moving as well here as she did at the French (up until the final). It would have been interesting to watch a match between herself and Maria on grass.

Still, Ana has more variety and court savvy than Nicole, so Venus must remain alert.

I'm happy for Ana who's such a nice girl. :) But I'm sad for Nicole because this crushing loss to Ana coukld hurt her development. :( But I hope she can shake it off and keep getting better.

Well Nicole is only 18, and Ana is I think a year older, so Nicole will have some time to get better. She had Serena on the ropes in her AO round in the first set. She could have closed it out and didn't. I hope this doesn't get to be a pattern.

Congrats to Ana, she really fought through. Now she needs to play the match of her life if she has any hope of getting past Venus.
