Kaja played really good today against Gibbs. I am really looking forward to the clash against Osuigwe tommorow. In the other SF I can't see anything else but win from TT.

Oh poor Chirico.... this is the last thing she needs for her fragile mentality. Down to Osuigwe 0-6 0-1..
Seems like she has been playing better this year, and hopefully gaining confidence as well. Bagels don't really help.. especially to 17 yr olds.

At least she made the 2nd set respectable, 4-6. She is finding some resilience lately that had been missing for a long time. She's still erratic with some very bad days, but at least now she's sometimes able to shrug off a terrible set and go on to win. Baby steps! :cool:

That's my question... If Whitney wins this final, She also wins the FO WC? Pera is in this race?

Wow...the match got quite interesting at the end. It looked like Taylor was going to cruise to victory, but Whitney fought back nicely.

There was SO much tension at the end: moonball festivals, an overrule (and a correct one), and a DF...all on match points.

In the end, Whitney missed too many makeable shots, and Taylor was too solid, despite getting tight late in the match. Congrats to her on the title defense!

Really happy for Tay :) But on the other hand watching her play today really underlines the fact that she won't go higher than Top 50/Top 60 if she doesn't change anything in her gameplan. Standing meters behind the baseline playing loopy shots most of the time will work against ITF opponents and on clay courts in general but it won't take her too far on other surfaces plus the fact that she has parts of the year where she roughly plays at all.

Good fight from Whitney, and an excellent two weeks! Hopefully this nabs her that FO WC

Congrats to TT, if you look at her career, this is where she thrives. Hoping she wises up and tries to push herself against more WTA competition, instead of settling for just an ITF career
