Birmingham Results: Shazza, Mirza Out

Posted by gauloises1 on June 13, 2009

It’ll be Li Na Na Li vs. Magdalena Rybarikova in the finals at Edgbaston Priory as the great runs of Sharapova and Mirza came to an end today.

Bye girls. It was fun while it lasted.

Sania started off well, taking the first set 63, but it all went horribly wrong after that, and tough grass-court prospect Rybarikova bagelled her in the second and snatched a tight third 63. I think this might be Rybarikova’s second final of the year after Pattaya City, but I’m too lazy to check.

Things were much more straightforward for Li Na Na Li, who took out Shazza in straights, 64 64. This was still a great result for Sharapova, and look at how much it meant to LNNL.

For reals, it’s great to see LNNL healthy and playing well. So much talent.

    Magdalena lost in the semis after upsetting Caro…….the pattaya final was Bepa-MIRZA!!!LOL (weird that….mirza is a comeback queen yet has already made a final this year)

    Jacko I’m glad you’re around. When I read the post I thought, “I should look up the Pattaya final for Gaul and put it in the comments, just to be nice.” Then I realized something. I too am too lazy (drunk) to click my mouse four times.

    Why does “click my mouse” sound slightly dirty?
