OK she proved me wrong, thought Vesnina would win easily.

BTW did anybody see this? I know Lena withdrew from her dubs. Was she injured?

Congrats Sabine

Well done Sabine. I imagine Lena's injury was a bit of a factor though which forced her to retire in doubles last night.

First set was the key for the success today :)
Elena was just not able, I think, to keep the level hight in the 2nd set, after she already retired in her doubles match yesterday.
Great tournament for Sabine, who was strong enough to handle the pressure today :D

I hope Bartoli wins her QF even more now. What she did to Sabine last Wimbledon was a treat to watch. Hoping for more of the same.

For a good WTA Final it will need LenaD and Sabine. Yeah I love Caro but that will be classic final I can so guarantee it.

So I'm rooting for both to make the final

Good win Sabine to consolidate the win over Venus yesterday. Good week for Elena even though she got injured in doubles.

Good win from Sabine over another in-form player. This is where her run stops though. :armed:

Dementieva-Bartoli is a higher profile match up and likely to be more of a match than Dementieva-Lisicki (Marion and Elena have a close rivalry).

Marion won their only match on clay. :hearts:


Elena leads H2H 4-2 though. :unsure:

Looking at the draw... it's not unthinkable that the Sabine girl might actually win the whole thing.

Well close enough for it to be a good match. Dementieva & Bartoli have had two of the best starts to 2009. A final in Charleston would already be a 4th for Elena and a 3rd for Marion this year.


Elena will kick her buttocks :hearts:

No. I hope it would be a nice match as I like both, but Marion will prevail in the end. :)

Good win for Lisicki, but Lena was obviously running on empty after a hard few weeks, so can't really take this at face value. Have some rest for a few days. You may get a callup to the Fed Cup as Bepa's replacement?

Vesnina played all 3 setters last week, and withdrew from doubles last night. She probably was worn out.
But Lisicki is a good player, and I think she's at least as good as Wozniacki and deserves this SF spot

A correction for many of you: Vesnina did not withdraw from the doubles match, nor did she retire. Chuang retired after the first set, because of a hurt shoulder.

She's a good player, I think we'll see a future in her, although it's still early to say that :)

This win is more important to me than the upset of Venus.
Hopefully she'll stay focused and won't start looking back on the last two matches...

Keep going, Sabine, I'd like to see ya play against Lena :drool:

Was I the only one to put Sabine in the "end of 2009 top 20 ranked players" thread at the start of this year ?
She's been threatening this for some time now and almost beat Azarenka in Memphis a few weeks ago, losing a final set tie break so this is not a surprise.
