Wow!
Both top seeds are out!
Camila took care of Bartoli! Marion should be embarrassed by this loss in her home country.
Virgine took care of Tamira.

Eugenie Bouchard of Canada is into her 1st WTA semi-final in Strasbourg, rain forced a stoppage in play against Alize Cornet. Bouchard has only lost 13 games so far as she preps for RG. She will be the lone Canadian there as both Sharon Fichman and Stephanie Dubois failed to qualify. With the points Eugenie has gained she will become the top Canadian, bypassing the injured Alexsandra Wozniak. I have visited the beautiful city of Strasbourg, many years ago.

And we have a winner!

FINAL

[3] Alize Cornet (FRA) d Lucie Hradecka (CZE) | 7 - 6 (4) | 6 - 0 |

Alize may very well become the dark horse in FO, she is superb on clay.
Genie did pretty well here, the best showing for her, she will be the best Canadian player for a ling time.
