Top seed drops 12 games in 4 rounds
Junior girls' number 1 seed Noppawan Lertcheewakarn has made it through to the semifinals of the Australian Open without dropping a set. She has also served three bagel sets, and has given up a total of only twelve games. Lertcheewakarn was the 2008 junior Wimbledon finalist. She lost--in a high quality match--to Laura Robson, whom she will meet in her Australian Open semifinal. 5th-seeded Robson defeated number 4 seed Elena Bogdan to get to the semifinal.
