What a match! In terms of tennis it was not always the best, but as an exercise in stressful viewing I think I have fulfilled my monthly quota and then some! Congratulations Lina!

Lina was too nervous today, lost rhythm of her shots and became passive
then at 2-3* in 3rd came back again :)
found her range and got thru

Paola played really well and got aggressive in 2nd set on.

I saw the match and felt that Paola played better, it's too bad that she was serving last which is always a disadvantage.

Paola did play better...
Lina was way too tense, it was the biggest moment of her career to date, 2nd set became too passive.

anyway i'm just really proud of Lina, the way she's fought and fought in last 3 matches

she didn't get to sleep until 2-30am last night cos doubles finishes close to midnight.

Congrats to Lina! :) For her to make a Tier 1 final is amazing! :D She deserves this so much after all the problems she went through last year with her devastating ankle injury.

Udachi Lina! :bounce:

I can't wait to hear the U.S. sports media try to pronounce Lina's last name.
They're going to have to now. Lina is probably the big darkhorse after beating the current #1 and getting to a Tier I final.
