Final 4 set in Istanbul

We have our WTA Championships semfinals. In the Red Group, Serena Williams and Petra Kvitova have emerged with the best records, and in the White Group, the contenders are Li Na and Jelena Jankovic.

Here is how the players finished the round robin part of the event (by matches only):

Red Group
Serena Williams: 3-0
Agnieszka Radwanska: 0-3
Petra Kvitova: 2-1
Angelique Kerber: 1-2

White Group
Victoria Azarenka: 1-2
Li Na: 3-0
Sara Errani: 1-2
Jelena Jankovic: 1-2

Today, Errani saved herself from having an 0-3 record by beating Jankovic 6-4, 6-4. Li defeated an injured (in more ways than one) Azarenka 6-2, 6-1. We had another three-set match, too: Kvitova defeated Kerber 6-7, 6-2, 6-3.

In tomorrow's semifinals, Li will play Kvitova, and Williams will play Jankovic. 

The doubles semifinual draw was made today:

Sara Errani & Roberta Vinci vs. Ekaterina Makarova & Elena Vesnina
Nadia Petrova & Katarina Srebotnik vs. Hsieh Su-Wei and Peng Shuai
