    Aravane had a very bad day, converting only 1 of 9 break points opportunities (Alisa: 6 of 9) and winning only 19% of her 2nd serve points (Alisa: 61%).

    Alisa said: "The score makes it look easy, but the match was very tough. There were plenty of games with deuces and advantages so it was still a big fight, but I'm happy with the way I played. The important thing for me today was to hit big serves, step into the court and play well on the important points. That was working well."

    About her semifinal opponent, Daniela Hantuchova, Alisa said: "Last time we played was San Diego, when I lost. Everyone is playing well so I will just try to prepare as well as I can. I know from the way I feel on the court I am good enough to win, but you never know what will happen in the match, and of course Daniela is a great player."

Yanina was playing very well, as she always does, and again I was proud to keep my winning record against her. It was tough at times but I kept my calm and kept going for the right shots. It's important on this surface to be very tactically smart, and it helped to know I've beaten her in the past, but you still have to perform well on the day." WTA story

    The win came on Ana's 23rd birthday.

    Ana said: "It was a tough match, physically and mentally. The rhythm on my serve wasn't there in the beginning, but I managed to stay calm and win that first set. I had match point in the second set but [Kimiko] played really well in that game, and I'm just happy to win in the end.
    "She hits the ball hard and low, so you really have to bend and use your legs, which is hard at my height...
    "It doesn't matter who I play in the final. I know that whoever it is, it will be a tough match. For the moment it's important for me to recover for tomorrow." WTA story
