Well done Elena :) Just do your best tomorrow. Caro and Elena had some amazing matches on that surface, each time Vesnina choked and Caro came out on top.

vesnina is so resilient.. :sad: shushu had 2 set points and overall went 3/12 on break points. i can understand how goerges went 0/9 on BPs in the 3rd set yesterday. she is so mentally tough. :sad:

anyway, yeah shuai you really need to take a break. there was no way you were going to beat wozniacki anyway in this condition so it's not really a loss, right? :angel:

Congratz Vesnina !

There were couple of tough moments but she hung on, great job :yeah:

Peng was playing good tennis, actually they both did play good tennis.

30-16 for Peng and 32-24 for Lena V in W/UF. But Lena took all important points.

I was worried about knee injury would make it uncomfortable for Peng to slide but she seems okay.:hug:

Good match overall, although it was obvious that Peng was really tired, especially at the end.

GL in the final, please lose comfortably, I wouldn't stand another choke :lol:

Elena has a top 20 game. She had some tough luck with injuries, but she looks on her way, singles & doubles.

I agree with the prior poster that this match was way more attractive. Both girls had some wicked returns and groundies. Vesnina had to produce a lot of very good serves and had a very high percentage. It's also nice to see girls that can play at the net and hit some gorgeous drop shots and lobs and so forth. Just some nice all court but still aggressive tennis. Peng is not easy to dominate but Elena was not letting herself get pushed around. Tough match from both girls.

Yes! thanks for correction, I agree it was a good match filled with well-constructed points. Sometimes it is good to enjoy tennis without all excessive drama.

It was most impressive of Elena to win the tie breaker for the first set after being broken in the 12th game. I donít have any such statistics but I imagine that when a player is broken while serving for the set and then immediately the tie breaker occurs she will more likely lose the set than her opponent.

You could plainly see Peng was injured. Her movement was pretty mediocre :sad:
It's great that you are the player with the most matches won this year sweetie, but you got to take it easy :scared:

Great stats from both, but Vesnina played the big points better. Great mental strength from her. Hope she plays well in the final eventhough I fully expect Caro to win. Rest up Shushu :hug:

Great week for Vesnina, glad to see her finally picking up a strong result again, she should be ranked much higher.

Peng has played a lot of tennis this year, not surpised she ran out of gas in the end

Hopefully Lena will bring it in the final, she's let a few close ones slip away against Wozniacki but she's proven she can put herself in the position to win...Time to take the win this time ;)

Excellent quality match considering the level of the players involved. Positive winner to UE ratio from both, by a considerable margin. Both players held serve often, which is remarkable considering that this was a women's mudball match and that I thought both returned serve quite well.

Vesnina was hitting the ball very well throughout (her unreliable FH seems to hold up better on clay than anywhere else), and skillfully handled any balls at the net (she still has good hands, leftover from back when she was trying to become an all-court player - c. 2007 IIRC). Played a good TB and kept going for her shots (incl. aggressive ROS) without making too many needless errors in the second.

Peng looked spent, and never managed to exploit Vesnina's very poor lateral movement in the rallies, not going for her shots all that much. She still had 2 SPs on Vesnina's serve in the first, but Vesnina saved them with two big flat serves.
