I am afraid that fatigue will catch up with Maria today. Coming into Birmingham she had only played 5 WTA Tour matches all year long. But this week in Birmingham she has played 7 matches! Including 2 qualifying matches.
In todays semifinal Maria lost the first set 6-2 but is leading 5-2 in the second set.
VenusSerena#1Fan, when were you hitting next to Maria at Bollettieri's? Was she making those grunting and shrieking noises? Thanks for the info.
