Semifinals set in Acapulco

Here is the semifinal draw for Acapulco:

Venus Williams vs. Edina Gallovits
Carla Suarez Navarro vs. Polona Hercog

Williams had to work for almost two hours and twenty minutes to obtain her 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 score against Laura Pos Tio, who is making somewhat of a statement in her return to the tour. Pous Tio, in fact, was up 5-1 in the third set. She failed to hold when she served for the match at 5-3, and was finally broken in a very long game at 5-all.

Agnes Szavay had to retire during her quarterfinal match against Hercog because of a left adductor strain.

It's Laura Pous Tio.

Typo--thanks for the catch.

Sorry Diane, another correction. Venus won 7-5 in the third.

Diane said...

Of course she did. I fancy myself to be such a good multi-tasker, but I think last night I was in over my head.

Polona Hercog, she could be very good in the coming years I think. Diane, who is Laura Pous Tio?

Diane said...

Laura is a Spanish player who left the tour because of injuries (I forget the nature of them, but it was serious). I'm not sure she was expected to return, but she has.

Pous Tio's highest ranking was 74.
