Bastad QF: (8) Aleksandra Krunic def. Homecourt Fave Johanna Larsson 6-4 6-7 6-4

Tough match, nice rallies, Krunic through to the SF maybe a slight return to form? Her shot selection is still questionable at times. She plays Misaki Doi next.

Krunic (R#100) and Doi (R#102) will be battling to break through the 100 barrier and get into main draw in the USO.
At least Krunic and Doi will be in a match with someone their own small size.

Are there matches you can remember that were between smaller WTA level players than Krunic and Doi? I am sure there are many, I just can't remember any offhand.

I'm pretty sure Doi and Davis played against each other

Off the top of my head I remember matches between Davis and Doi, Davis and Hibino, Cibulkova and Doi. And then there was the Coetzer-Sugiyama rivalry.

Really pleased Aleks gutsed this match out. Larsson played very well in the 1st two rounds bagelling both Cirstea, the number one seed and Rus. She obviously was very determined to do well in her home event. So Aleks had to fight very hard to get this win.

I think Aleks actually showed signs of playing well in her 1st round at Wimbledon too. She was just unlucky that she drew Muchova who as we now know was playing at a very high level and in the end made it to the quarterfinals. I'm hopeful Aleks can win a couple of more matches this week and take the title here. She really does need the points, and she needs the confidence too. But above all she needs the matches and nothing will get her out of the slump she has been in more effectively than a solid week of competitive clay court tennis. After this event she has two more clay WTA events lined up in Bucharest and Palermo and hopefully she can pick up a few more wins there. And then it is on to the North American Hardcourts culminating with the US Open a tournament Aleks has done well at several times previously. I think the next couple of months could be very good for her. Fingers crossed of course.

Great to see Krunic in better form. Hopefully she finds the way up again.
