I'm counting on Flavia to use her Fed Cup inspiration to take some scalps during the clay season. She kicked off her campaign today, holding her nerve (and her serve) to come back and take out JJ in three, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.
And get this: SHE SERVED IT OUT.
Suck on that, WTA, haters!
As for the other semifinalists, Dina took care of Agi in straights (with both girls holding serve for the first SEVEN games), and Lena and Kuz also make it through, beating Mono and Dulko, respectively.
So Dina vs. Flavs and Lena vs Kuz tomorrow. Fun!
