Did Li have her knee taped up yesterday?

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:25 AM
Well, it takes 12 minutes to get to 1-1. 4 minutes for the first game on Li's serve, and then Dulgheru struggles but holds.

1-1 Li serving now at 15-0.

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:27 AM
Easy hold for Li. She leads 2-1 now.

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:32 AM
A somewhat easier service game from Dulgheru.

2-2, Li to serve.

soril
May 21st, 2010, 10:32 AM
Li started stronger in this match, she actually had the easiest time in Warsaw until this semifinal.
C'mon Alex, show your fighting spirit and mix it up like only you can! :)

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:35 AM
First BP in match for Dulgheru. However, Li saves it.

2-2, 40-40 Li serving.

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:39 AM
Already, Li has 4 aces already and Dulgheri 1. Another game point for Li.

Serve down the center line of the court, Dulgheru returns, Li returns, then Dulgheru into the net. Game Li.

3-2 Li

soril
May 21st, 2010, 10:44 AM
Super point from Alex! Li pushed her with heavy balls, but Alex turned the rally around with a down the line BH before finishing it off!! 3/3...

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 10:47 AM
Li broken to love.

4-3 Dulgheru leads

soril
May 21st, 2010, 10:47 AM
While Li looked super fit at the beginning of the match (4 aces, heavy balls, stepping in on short returns), Alex has more variety in her shots and seems to be taking control of the match...

GO Alex!!! Break to love!!! :inlove:

soril
May 21st, 2010, 10:54 AM
4/4... Alex loses serve... C'mon now, concentrate! :)

Noctis
May 21st, 2010, 11:08 AM
The problem is she doesn't convert after saving important points

Noctis
May 21st, 2010, 11:09 AM
Maria got this in the bag

soril

Why are you saying that?! :) Li played a good set, but not consistent enough...

Bronx19

Now I just need Li to win this set.

I just sent you a message. It may or may not work. Sorry. I forgot about the separate threads.

soril

Alex starts better in the second set: 2/0! Seems like Li is shaking up, although she keeps her heavy balls!

Jorn

Dulgheru 6-4, 2-1...


But why post Maria scores here...

soril
May 21st, 2010, 11:28 AM
Alex looks tired, goes for some high balls, but keeps her game variety... Li stepping in, and gets the break back!!!

2/2

C'mon Alex, dig deep and find some extra power! :)

edificio
May 21st, 2010, 11:28 AM
Dulgheru 6-4, 2-1...


But why post Maria scores here...

I switched matches, and then I didn't think about where I was. All clean now. I deleted them. :)

soril
May 21st, 2010, 11:37 AM
3/3 in this second set. Alex is not that into the match at the moment, but I hope she builds on her first set advantage :)... Li still has the power, but not the consistency!!!

soril
May 21st, 2010, 11:47 AM
Alex - LiNa 6/4, 3/6... It was natural to see Alex lose this set, she's tired...

C'mon now, dig deep and fight more!

soril
May 21st, 2010, 12:52 PM
Great win for Alex!!! :clap2::clap2::clap2: She was tired, but kept her eye on the ball all the time and mixed it up to turn the game to her advantage!

She is back in the final of Warsaw Open, and even though she had a difficult season after that unbelievable success at her first WTA tournament last year, she is now seeded at the French and things look promising for her. She's only 21 and she has time to gain power, the hand and the mind are there already!

She's honest about where her game is, and she knows what hard work she needs to put in:

WTA: How has your game developed over the past 12 months?
Alex: Just being there with all the big players makes your game improve, in every way. It has to. Confidence has a lot to do with it.

WTA: Do you have any particular aims for this year? Do you set ranking targets or specific tournament goals?
Alex: Not really. I just want to improve the soft spots, be more aggressive and get some more power in my game. And it's my first full season at this level, so I also want to make sure that I keep enjoying it.

Big Greta confirms the break to go 2/0 up on Lil'Jie.

Greta has a more suited game on clay, but Jie is also there, mixing it up...

Big Greta is pushed in the corner by Lil'Jie: 3/4 down after being 3/1 up! Hm...

Lil'Jie is moving well on court, even though she said she's a lit'le scared of clay, afraid to pick up injuries :)

Mynarco
May 21st, 2010, 02:13 PM
Jie missed a passing shot :(

soril
May 21st, 2010, 02:16 PM
Lil'Jie in trouble... She had to deal with a very high ball and lost the point... 30/30 on her serve...
Big Greta also misses a lot!

Lil'Jie wins it! Nice match from Greta though, she had her chances, maybe she lacked some of the freshness she had earlier in the week (I think she came from Qualies in Warsaw)!!! :)

soril
May 21st, 2010, 02:38 PM
Asked what she thinks about the final match with Alex, Jie was a bit unsure...
She'll see tomorrow what Alex' game is all about! :) :) :)
