Huber & Petrova to play King & Krajicek in Charleston final

The ad hoc team of Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova totally dominated Ekaterina Makarova and Marie-Eve Pelletier in today's semifinals in Charleston. Huber and Petrova, seeded number 1, defeated Makarova and Pelletier 6-2, 6-2.

In the other semifinal, Vania King and Michaella Krajicek defeated Nathalie Grandin and Abigail Spears 6-4, 7-6. This was the first match of the day, and was well-played and entertaining. King and Krajicek won the tiebreak 7-4.

What happened to Cara Black? Also I thought Petrova and Stosur were going to be together this year.

Petrova and Stosur are together this year, to the extent that Stosur will play doubles. Stosur chose not to play doubles in the Family Circle Cup because she didn't want to burn herself out right before Fed Cup. Because she wasn't going to play, Petrova didn't plan to play, either. However, Tony Huber asked Nadia if she would team with Liezel, and Nadia accepted.

I have no idea what happened with Black.
