Nice 2nd set from both. A little scared in the first when Na went from 3-0 up to 3-2, but kept it strong.

Super windy conditions today, Na is showing that she's one of the better players in the wind. Despite her wildness, she tends to keep it together in the blustery conditions.

Good on Lucie for holding serve often under the gun in the 2nd set. At one point her chair blew over from the wind! She kept it together though for the most part, Na was just too good in the end. Lucie was having a lot of problems with the wind especially on her toss.

Na na was getting ANGGGGGRY at the end when it took her a few MPs to finally convert.

Sydney QF: Li Na(4) def. Lucie Safarova 6-2 7-6(3)

Average match, Na just doing enough. Some decent returns in the first set but pretty bad overall in the second set. Forehand was bad halfway that 2nd set. Good serving kept her ahead though, happy with that. She improved that from yesterday.
Lucie doesn't have much to hurt Na with, yet Na made it so hard on herself.


On to the SF :bounce: , hopefully against Kvitova! She will need to improve, her last 2 matches have been a bit disappointing. Still, happy she's not peaking early but gaining matchplay and confidence.

Were you saying that about Na's match yesterday (and her second in the tournament, compared to Petra's first), where she got smoked in the first set 6-1? :confused: :eek: :confused:

Plus she blew 5 match pts in this match. Na's kool though. ;)

yes, na always plays well in australia, but i'm still a little surprised how she managed to turn things around during off-season, considering her horrendous play at the YEC (and before).
