Dina survived an awesome challenge from Flavia to make her first final as the world #1. Flavia looked like she had Dina, taking the first and leading 40-15 at 5-5 in the second set. She would miss an easy backhand and double fault to go to deuce, and Dina never looked back. She would reel off the next 8 games to take it, 36 75 60. Good on Dina for showing the grit and comeback spirit that started her whole resurgence a year ago in Berlin. Tough luck for Flavia.
In the other semi, Kuz absolutely blitzed Lena D. in a match that wasn't as close as the scoreline indicates. Kuz won 64 62 in a little over an hour.
While I would love to see Kuz breakthrough to FINALLY win a final, I have to root for Dina to back up her #1 ranking and take the title.
