Yup, this ugly sack of shit won despite serving 15 double faults. Or, you know, more, according to her:
Q. Are you working specifically on the mental side of your game?
DINARA SAFINA: If I would work, I would not serve 250 double‑faults today, (laughter) because it's just my brain sometimes doesn't do the things that I have to do.
Q. Where did these 15 double‑faults come from?
DINARA SAFINA: 15? I thought it was much more (smiling).
Yeah, I don't know. Sometimes even I don't know what I'm doing with my serve. I mean, yesterday's match I'm serving the whole third set very good. Suddenly I warm up, I'm serving good, everything good, and suddenly I come and just... I think for the serve, it's not me there serving.
Because there I say like, Okay, go down, go up, do this. Then I toss the ball and I'm already by the fence running. I am just escaping the serve.
But seriously, nice gut out win by Dina. No, it wasn't pretty, but she's a fighter and that's what she did again after dropping the first set. She's now been to the semifinals of all of the last four Slams. Not too shabby for the faux #1.
A really impressive run by Boom Boom but it she just ran out of gas today. How else can you explain the fact that she can't even beat a fat ugly girl who served 15 double faults? Can't wait to see what she can do during the hardcourt season. That said, rest up, kiddo. Your body is falling apart.
So Dina will face Venus in the marquee matchup of the semifinals.
Well, if you like ugly people on your marquee.
