Tatiana is obviously gonna lose early here- she's a one court wonder, plus this is her home tournament and she can't perform well under pressure, she's also injured again (right knee) and is facing Serena is first round...She can never catch a break :sobbing::hug:

Atrocious start from Sveta here but she steadied herself well. Real tough luck for Venus who would have won if she had got the CT, so a real tight match in the end here. Sveta moves on to consecutive semis.

Great match here between these two. Schnyder battled back well in the first set but Serena was just able to sneak it. Schnyder played a good second set, but Serena was too good for Patty in the third set.

Kournikova forced to withdraw

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/550/1akoupic319.jpg


Yesterday afternoon, Russian Anna Kournikova was forced to withdraw from her quarterfinal match against Alize Cornet. Recent semifinalist at the Australian Open, the sexy Russian carried her form here in Paris as she beat Radwanska 2-6, 6-4 and 6-3 in the first round. Then, she continued her way by defeating World number 3 in another three sets match of 1-6, 6-1 and 6-4. But the tennis star withdrew before her quarterfinal match as she caught gastroenteritis.
“I am really disappointed I had to withdraw from the event. I apologize to Tour director, Chris, and to organizers here in Paris. This is such a nice tournament. Peoples are nice, the city is wonderful and I love the court. I’ve played well during all week. I am pleased with the way I am playing right now. I added another win against the Top3 players. This means I belong to them and I will work harder to be up there. Like everyone already knows, I had gastroenteritis. That’s why I had to pull out. I would have loved to play another time against Alize. We already played twice against each other but I am sure there will be many encounters between us. I am feeling better today and I’ll be back on court tomorrow for training session. So, I will definitely compete next week in Antwerp. By the way, I am taking the plane tonight. So I’ll arrive earlier and get fine with the conditions and the courts.” Said Kournikova.

Both Serena and Lena had CTs to thank for them being in the final today, and once again it was a CT which was decisive. For the third time this week :eek: Serena wins through courtesy of a CT. She looks to be back tot he form of the end of last season. Hard luck for Lena who remains #1 by a fair margin despite this loss today
