Tough loss there for Vera, who really struggled to hold serve from the midway point in the match. Last night Caroline and Vika had their first meeting of the year in the first semifinal match.

Meanwhile in doubles, Iveta and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova upset Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik 6-2, 6-4. It`s nice to see her get a big win for the first time in a while. The match went the full three sets with Caroline coming out with a 6-2, 6-7(3), 6-4 win.
