Sam Stosur advances to Semi-Finals

Sam Stosur
Federer beat Monfils to end French interest in the tournament. Now the only interest is if Fed can fulfil expectations and take the GOAT title so alluringly offered to him with his only missing major. And anyone who says he only won because he didn’t have to play Nadal can be pointed back two weeks to Madrid. (Not that Roger necessarily beats Rafa in Paris but it’s a convincing out.)

Del Potro beat Robredo as expected. Stosur dusted up Cirstea and looks awesome. But Kuznetsova took Serena down and that’s all you’ll read about. Serena refused to give any credit to her opponent as usual but Sveta did play smart and kept her head (when all those around are losing theirs) and deserved to win.

Next it’s:
Safina vs Cibulkova
Del PotroDominika destroyed Sharapova but Safina will be more difficult and will return everything. She also has more weapons and the superior game (and dare we say better temperament?) But Cibulkova could win this and next year she might. Not this year sorry. Safina in three.

Stosur vs Kuznetsova
Let’s assume Sveta won’t be blown away by the big serve and forehand like Cirstea was and that Stosur maintains her cool and big booming game. This should be a good contest. Kuznetsova in three.

Ten reasons to love tennis.
