Well done Francy :bounce: I know winning titles isn't your speciality but please beat Stosur in the final :sobbing:

She really should have beaten Bammer in Prague :(

If Fran plays in Moscow, she has another good draw. Q in r1, Cirstea or Niculescu in r2 and Radwanska in the QF (who could withdraw...)

Llagostera Vives has barely won a match since Indian Wells and as long as Fran doesn't revert back to US Open series mode, I'm sure she'll win easily ;) Plus Fran won their last match on hard.

Bit closer than I expected but Fran must be pretty tired.

She's up against Niculescu next - I hoped this match would be on Eurosport but it's been relegated to one of the outside courts :(

In the post-match interview, does anyone know what that second question was? Despite asking her to repeat it, Fran still didn't understand but instead of asking her again, Fran took it with her normal good humour :lol:

Good luck against Boring Bondarenko :banana:

A final will give Fran 370pts and a victory will give her 470pts so either way, I think she will move to No.20 if she beats Alona...

I think that was a bit of a jinx because she just played a truly awful game :p But she threw in the odd bad game against Makiri yesterday so I'm not too worried.

Go Fran :banana:

Franny was down 40-0 on Alona's serve at 1-0 then won the next 9 pts to be up 3-0 in the second. :D

Bondarenko is always going to struggle against someone like Fran because she doesn't have the weapons to hit through Fran, who has been moving fabulously and defending so well here.

:eek: I completely forgot it was a Premier tournament - I thought it was an International event so I didn't expect her to move up so many places!

I'm really excited about next year - No16 in the world and virtually nothing to defend until Wimbledon apart from a few MM semi-final points. Plus with Kleybanova, she could be in contention for a Grand Slam title in doubles :banana:
