Schedule is our : first (14:30 local, 21:30 israel) peer vs paszek , shahar leads 1-0 in h.2.h (she won in fed cup 2007 6-4 6-4)
after it Irina Falconi (102) vs. Nadia Petrova (32) if peer will win her semi final she'll have to pray for the yound american
and then doubles semi final: Mirza/Shvedova vs. Peer/Stephens , they will need a miracel to win this vs. grand slam former winners
Indeed the final will be against Petrova, who also came back from a set down in her semi, vs. the young American Falconi (who will make her top 100 debut following this tournament) - 1-6 6-3 6-1.
The 2009-10 resurgence also came following back-to-back MM titles, so hopefully this will also signal something similar, but first Shahar needs to be able to handle Nadia for once in her life.
Meanwhile she and Stephens are getting a wipeout (0-5 after just 13 minutes) in their doubles semi against the top seeds, but frankly they were lucky to make it that far (with just one win), and I don't care all that much.
Good try Shahar. But 4 wins in a row was great after riding a 5 match losing streak into this event. Hopefully this will get her going and she'll turn up the heat at the USO series and the Open like she normally does.
