raluca olaru and nadiia kichenok have a good chance at winning this pity they have got andreea mitu and oskana kalashinkova 1st round and good luck to natela dzalamidze with paula kania and i will keep an eye on kim zimmermann as well
I won't say that Routliffe and Zimmermann threw away their chance for a semi-final, but Zimmermann got broken when serving for the match. They also had a match point in each tie-break, but on their opponents' serve. I wasn't sure that Blinkova would even last to the end, because she had a MTO for her right hip after the first set, and got treated again by the physio after the third and fifth games in the second set.
I didn't watch the semi-final, where Jurak and Klepac beat Blinkova and Rus, again in a match tie-break.
