If Sugiyama wouldn't have played a three setter two hours ago, I think she would have had a good shot at it! But with less then two hours of rest, it will be extremely tough for her to play Kim...

Kim def. Ai 7-5, 6-0

But Ai has played fantastic this week so she should be pround of herself!

It stopped raining. They just finished showing the tiebreak from the ai/alex semi. That could have gone either way. That crowd was so small and SO much louder than this one. They mentioned Alex's mother got a warning for coaching in the semifinal. They are now going to show the end to the other semi.

Alex had her chances to win the TB, she had that short ball that she passively put back into play that she should have put away.

She was well behaved at the handshake so, she is slowly getting back into my good graces :) A few more good handshakes after losses and I will start cheering for her again!
