Big disappointment. Maria lost her semis against Victoria Azarenza from Belarus. In the first set Maria dominated Azarenka and took easily the set 63. The key of the final defeat was the second set: too many errors, too many double faults, Maria far away from her potential, while Azarenka started to play wery well, eventually 62 for Belarus player. The third set was very tough, battled with great determination by both players, with Maria unfortunately not in her best shape, below her best level, not in condition to impose on Azarenka the rythm of her best days. There was also a component of casuality: everything has turned in favor of Azarenka, definitely it wasn't the right day for Maria. This would have to be the real final of the tournament, and Maria was so close to win: this the great regret for what might have been and wasn't. But life continues.

Although you have lost the game against superium Azarenka, you where very good on court.
Not for fully 100%, but come on who is? (Azarenka was! Bad luck! (wrong time, wrong place.))
You played outstanding! Great played. Nothing to be shame for, i enjoyed it very much watching your hard strokes.
But with only only hard strokes you can't win anybody. Azarenka returned everything!
How harder you hitted, how more Azarenka was focussed.
So wake up and practice your dropshots and netplay, to create more killingpoints.
Good luck!
