Bucharest SF: Patricia Țig [Q] solves Siegemund [6], 6-3 6-1, to reach 2nd WTA final

Impressive! The mommy is back, she's better than ever, a lot better than she was and at only 24 years old she looks even more promising than compatriot Buzarnescu. Siegemund couldn't cope with the power of Tzig.

I can see this Romanian lady entering top 50 by the middle of 2020 if she can repeat this tournament display. No wonder she was winning some matches like 6-0 6-0 in Mexico 15ks.

And the German still did well, by beating Begu.

Tzig's drop shots are amazing, Halep and 99% of the players should learn from her! And what an ending!

Laura really tried it in this match… Between the 7 minute long toilet break, the fake MTO when she went down a double break, the time violations (which she rightfully got called for), and getting the umpire to check marks that were a good foot out.

It still wasn’t enough to overcome her crap play.

Congrats to Tig who is having a great week and a very worthy winner.

Glad Siegemund's antics didn't work She goes down 1-4 in set 2, simply because she's making stupid choices and having a bad day, and calls a medical time out Keeps on playing like crap after that and starts throwing the most childish tantrums (why are you throwing tantrums if the problem is just that you're injured? )

I didn't see it, but the heat returned today in Europe! Tzig was crying a little bit at the interview, great win for her.

Awesome run by Tig. She is such a quality player. Very emotional also after her victory
I hope she is here to stay. And she has good chances in the final

Did anybody make the count, what many droppers did they both make?

Congrats this young mom

Tig is so solid, especially clutch in saving those many BPs
saved all 8 ones in 4 service games
Siegemund's meltdown in the 2nd is

Re: Bucharest SF: Patricia Țig [Q] solves Siegemund [6], 6-3 6-1, to reach 2nd WTA fi

I was under the impression she got a MD WC here but no, it was a WC for qualies, so this is her 7 win in a row here. This is a player who two years ago left the sport to deal with her health, made a baby along the way and now at just 24 is back and made the final of the first singles WTA main draw she's played since 2017. She was unranked at the start, now she is one win away from a title. Why aren't more talking about this? Why is the WTA not making a thing out of this? I mean the story writes itself here.

Anyway couldn't watch the match (have yet to even see a second of her play) but from everything I've heard and this score she could be one of the year's revelations. Does she also do well on hard? Sure hope this is not one of those one and done things.

I mean seriously when's the last time an unranked player who came through qualifying through a WC made the final of a WTA tournament? And what if she wins it? This is a good storyline, WTA should definitely do something with it.

Death, taxes, Siegemund. I'm glad she is over her injuries, but I guess there is truth to what they say about psychology students

Honestly, I love Siegemund's actual game, but all of this is so par for the course with her. The MTO was so transparent.

Amazing story for Tig, who's really been peaking this week, and playing a lot better than I remember her ever doing the first time round.

Re: Bucharest SF: Patricia Țig [Q] solves Siegemund [6], 6-3 6-1, to reach 2nd WTA fi

Țig's wins before pregnancy: at Madrid Mutua Open where she reached the QFs - Stephens (6-2 6-3), Keys (6-3 6-4), prime Kasatkina (6-3 4-6 6-2). Then beat Pavlyuchenkova on hard surface at Baku International (6-3 6-3) and Vekic (6-3 6-2), Mladenovic at Miami Masters (7-6 6-2). And Sakkari, also at Madrid (3 setter). Then after Madrid in 2016 she got pregnant. Baku was in 2015.

Girl's potential is better than some of the current top players.
