Not that it matters who Anett will meet in SF if she continues playing like this.
Broken when serving for the match at *53 again.
So 64 75 it is.
3 DF, 5 aces, was broken 6 times, overall points 75 vs 69.
Surprisingly few DF-s I should say, which is positive.
Btw Luangnam lost and is out.
It can only get better from here I hope..
Even though Lysakova is unranked that it is not really fair.
First of all, she has 9 Points (you need 10 to get a ranking) and she will have one after this tournament. She made a final of a 10K and her only losses have been to Barbat and Saitova. Still, Anett should have done better but I am sure that she will be able to win the next round. Whether she does is another question
The draw is opening up very nicely though and it's good that her Doubles partner beat the tops seed
BTW, was her match on a stream yesterday because e-tennis is streaming Moscow Centre Court
