Vesna had MP in the TB but Katya saved it with an ace.

Vesna was 30 up in the third then went :cuckoo:

Well maybe she is still to young to be able to hold her head together...

Remarkable week for Katya. Second time this week she has snatched victory from what looked like sure defeat. She must be a real happy bunny right now. This should get her back in the top 100 and I hope she stays there. Also this win shows Katya is playing really well and it makes Yari's 1st round loss to her a bit easier to take.

Congrats on an Excellent week Katya. :yeah:
As for Vesna, well up to now she has been very impressive and she is clearly moving in the right direction too. :)

Congrats Katya! 2nd ever Tour SF I believe?

Bychkova will keep the rank I think, because she had 50 points from Paris last year and now she defended these points....Unless she reaches the final, her rank will stay almost the same.
