Re: Week 16: ART San Diego: Mercury Insurance Open
Doubles Semi Finals
Vera Zvonareva (RUS) and Petra Kvitova (CZE) def. Sabine Lisicki (GER) and Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) 6-4 6-3
It has been a brilliant tournament for Sveta who has made the semi finals of both events but today she seemed a little fatigued after a lot of tennis this week. Sabine and Sveta should see their rankings improve though Vera and Petra, this week's singles finalist put on a masterclass today and even though they were pushed in the first set, they always looked comfortable and are looking strong going into the final.
Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ) and Vania King (USA) def. Alison Riske and Christina Mchale (USA) 7-5 6-2
Yaro and Vania looked so impressive today and really are going to be a tough team to beat on the doubles circuit. Their consistency this week is going to put Vera and Petra under massive pressure in the final as they looked dominant closing out the match today. Alison and Christina were really unlucky after having 2 set points at 5-4* in the first set and after losing them just seemed to drop off a little. All experience though and Alison has had a great tournament. Congrats to all finalists [/color]
