I think Li can win, but if she throws in an awful set like she did against Zakopalova, this match goes to The Radwanska. I'm taking Aga in 3.

Surprised in a way that Li has got this far at Wimbledon, she did not look all that strong against Elena Vesnina at Eastbourne, but that shows you, things can change in tennis in just a few days. Aga in 3 too.Smile

I am kind of surprised Li has made it soo far.
This is the hardest match for me to pick a winner.
I will go with my heart and pick Li in 3 tough sets.

Anybody watching? Carlos is coaching Li from the stands...

After several set points when serving for the set, Li does what is typical Li behavior and chokes the first set away. Aga takes it in a breaker. Now the rain has come and suspended the match.

Carlos just can't stop himself from doing that, he used to do it with his other apprentice.

I know. Except w/ this charge it still isn't helping her win. She drops the first set anyway. Now he can actually legally coach her during the rain delay. Let's see if it helps.

Nope. It doesn't help. Li down a break in the 2nd set 4-2. Aga 2 games away from the SF.

Where has that shot been Mox? Li's DTL BH

On 2 more BH winners, Li breaks and takes the 2nd set 6-4. Onto the decider we go.

Something is going on w/ Aga, but I can't hear as I can't have the volume on. The trainer is out there and she's laying on the court.

Aga has a strapping around her thigh. She comes back after the MTO and breaks Li to start the set. Up 2-0. Li has an AD for her service game when the rain came. Match suspended again.

Just kidding.

The masses were correct and so was I!
3rd set here could help Sabine too!

Possibly, but they do have a day of rest and won't play again until Thurs. All of them are fit and young (except Li) and are used to playing best of 3 everyday.

The roof is closed and the players are back on court. Li holds for 2-1. Still down a break.

Li has turned into UE machine Li and is now down 1-5 in the final set. Aga 2 points away from the SF.
