Australian Open day 7

24 01 2010

My final 4 predictions can already go in the garbage after today, a good example that the Women’s Tour is much more surprising than the men’s side. One match ended by retirement though by Safina who injured her leg against Maria Kirilenko. Jie Zheng beat Alona Bondarenko and can make her second slam semi-final after reaching it at Wimbledon in 2008. The other 2 round 4 matches were way more interesting. The Belgian battle between Justine Henin and Yanina Wickmayer was on a very high level. The first set was for Henin with 7-6 after Wickmayer had setpoints. Second set was easily won by Wickmayer who played fantastic and made very few errors. Last set Henin played unbelievable though winning it 6-3. She is such a little fighter! Petrova beat the 3rd seat Kuznetsova 6-3 3-6 6-1. This is the first time since the spring of 2006 when she was unbeatable on the green and red clay that she won 2 matches against top players in a row. She was a big favorite for Roland Garros, but lost very early and since then she has been a head-case. Hopefully she can keep it together now for a change and win a deserved slam title. Kuznetsova made a lot of errors though so she handed it to Petrova.
