Then Petra hit a superb and clutch volley to get to 15-15. Error Na was then back in return.

Li It must be bad losing at home like this.
Not as bad as her 2012 China Open SF match.

LOL, 5 threads

Anyways, it was a great error-fest contest between two good friends. Really impressed by Petra's composure in front of a somewhat partisan crowd. I had originally thought the home crowd advantage would tip the match in Li's favour, but Petra proved me wrong

Li played goat only in a few patches, otherwise quite a lot of errors and doublefaults.

GL to Petra in semi, I don't expect the FedCup drubbing again, but she's the favourite in my book. Hoping for Rena-Petra final

Lots of DFs, but excluding those leaves W-UE of 21-29 and 17-23 for a three set match - which are actually pretty fair stats for two big hitters.

Probably many forced errors, but not surprising given the hitting involved.

Win it all Petra
A lot of people seem to judge matches from just looking at live scores and stats. Like you say, expected from two big hitters.

I'm glad Petra is starting to edge out the matches she should win now... rather than being on the losing end.

Li's chance for top 3 is gone this year. Regroup for YEC and next year - don't retire, your home record is much better than Sam's.
she never had it and she NEVER will

I'm very impressed by how Petra managed to keep it together. She has a remote shot at being a YE #3

Re: Beijing QF: [9] P3tra Kvitova d. [4] Li Na 4-6 6-2 6-4!

It was a decent match, borderline good. It's not as bad as people think. Sure there were quite a few breaks but the rallies in the first and second and a bit of the third, before the players got tired at least, were pretty good.

Both the ladies can hit quite hard and there were a lot of forced errors.

I'm surprised Petra still has gas in the tank this year. Hope she reaches the final with Serena then withdraws from whatever tournaments and gets ready for YEC.

They almost had a fight in Jie's R1 match.

Kvitova is starting to dominate like so many pundits predicted post her Wimbledon win. It's gonna be tough for Serena to get to 18

It wasn't bad match...

And what did you really expect from Petra and Na?

Those people who keep challenging the crowd is much worse that the annoying crowd, especially whoever from France
