WTA: Warsaw Semis Set, Strasbourg Rained Off

Posted by gauloises1 on May 21, 2010

Better take quick stock of what’s happening in the tournaments I’ve totally ignored so far this week in an attempt to ready myself for Roland Garros … In Warsaw, after the exits of Elena Dementieva and Caroline Wozniacki, it’s all about the Chinese ladies who could face each other in the final. Zheng Jie will face qualifier Greta Arn, who took out Alona Bondarenko in three sets, while defending champion Alexandra Dulgheru – who has parlayed last year’s surprise victory into a solid 2010 clay season – faces Li Na.

In Strasbourg things were a bit more of a damp squib. Kristina Barrois and Vania King (yes – the tiny American girl) are already through to the semis in straight sets, but Maria Sharapova and Anabel Medina Garrigues were both rained off and will have to complete their quarterfinals tomorrow.
