I'm just so proud of our little Cryoline Pushniaki!
When she had reached the quarters, I was really happy, as she had finally gotten past the 4th round. And now she's in the finals! Unbelieveable, isn't it? She hasn't had a tough road to the final, but who cares? She's beaten the players who beat the big names, so I'm really, really pleased.
I really feel bad for Caro (and Yanina) that almost no one watched their match! The weather totally ruined everything, and the drama at the end of the Kim-Serena match took away all the attention from Caro-Yanina. She was really nice about it in her interview, though! Here's what she said:
Q. Playing in that stadium where it was maybe 300, 400 people in there and it was empty, was that easy or hard for you?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Maybe actually it was easier, because, you know, you didn't really feel the thing that you're in the semifinals. You didn't feel the pressure too much that actually you're so close to being in a finals. Only two matches away.
So I mean, I understand the people. We were waiting all day to get to play, and the weather really didn't want everything like we wanted it today. But we got to play, and I'm very happy.
On one hand, the Caro-Kim final is amazing for me as they are my two big favourites, but on the other hand it's a really bad situation as I want both of them to win badly -- Caro's in her first slam final ever, and Kim has just come back from a long break. I don't want any of them to lose.
I am definitely going to watch it, though! I'm really confused about when they're playing. The official OOP says they play after the Federer-Djokovic match, which starts 16:30 local time, but I've heard lots of people and websites say that the match is at 21:00 local time?
