Roland Garros day 10

2 06 2010

Hurrah, two of my favs have to play each other in the semi-finals. Cannot even remember the last time that happened in a slam. Francesca Schiavone played the match of her life and beat world number 3 Caroline Wozniacki in 2 sets 6-2 6-3. And she played fantastic. Deep spin mixed with short balls and balls going wide, good defense and also serve-volley, slice and kick. Wow, this was one of the most entertaining women’s matches I have seen in a long time. Wozniacki did not even play that bad. In the semis 29-year-old Schiavone who made the top 10 for the first time in her career ,will play Elena Dementieva who beat an injured Nadia Petrova. Even though I was rooting for Elena, I felt sorry for Petrova. Playing a great match in the round of 16 to beat Venus Williams and even with a slight thigh injury playing a great first set against Dementieva winning 6-2. Dementieva took over the initiative and Petrova could barely move in the end losing 2-6 0-6. Even though I am happy with the 2 semifinalists I also know that my ultimate favorite Kim Clijsters could have really done some damage here at Roland Garros if she could have played.Schiavone
