Well deserved results for Vera :yeah:. She is going back to where she belongs. Actually, she should have been into top 15 for one year, but each time she could, she got injured. I hope her body stays strong!
Good tournament for Na as well :hug:.

Na major disappointment:fiery: Why does she always have big wins and then she plays crap in the matches in which she can/should finally break through. Big choke/breakdown after such a comfortable win over a top5 player, against mentalmidget zvonereva for godsakes:o. Pick it up the next weeks, you can do better!

Na is really good at hitting balls into the corners. She was serving 33 0-40 in the 1st, and took over the match.
But then she couldn't hold her serve after being up a set & a break 63 *21

true :rolls: she can almost beat anyone when her UE mode is off :lol: i started to scare when she took the first 6-3 as she always relax and lose focus if winning the first set easily. she also likes to play safe. thats y i knew shes gonna to beat chaky after that tough first set :haha:

Good luck to Vera tomorrow against Maria.
Generally, it is a delightful week for me, although my fav Anna.C lost, what was better is her terminator is Na Li.
Na really improved a lot this year after her comback, she is aggresive, and she has done better mentally this year. I just realised she have reached 3SF and better in her 4 tournaments.
Good luvk next week.

This result goes a bit of a way to answering the thread about Na ever winning a grand slam. 3 great wins sewn together, then she just can't keep from letting her game go off the rails. But still a great tourney for her, and she should do very well up to clay season.

Vera seems to have become a great fighter lately, well done.

that's sth that I cannot even think about at the moment although Na has way exceeded my expectation this year...
I was afraid that she might lose her game after such a long injury but obviously she got a lot of positive stuff from that rest...
there is still room for improvement so keep up!!!:worship:
