How could you think Erakovic def. Zvonereva could be more of an upset than Erakovic def. Davenport?
Because Vera Zvonareva was a finalist in the previous two years at the ASB Classic. Vera said in a number of interviews that Auckland was one of her favourite tournaments of the year and that's why she so strongly backed it to remain on the schedule from 2009 onwards.
On top of that this is Marina's second semifinal, she will be better mentally prepared than she was last time...
