Analysis of the quarter-finals:
~Peng Shuai beaten Belinda Bencic 6:2 6:1. It was stunning performance from Peng. She was patient and aggressive and she really destroyed Belinda. However, both ladies played amazing at the US Open 2014, so both deserve a credit. Well done Peng and Bencic! 🙂
~Caroline Wozniacki beaten Sara Errani 6:0 6:1. Sara was solid, but Wozniacki played superb! She destroyed Sara. However, both ladies played excellent at this tournament and they really deserved to be in the last 8 at this year’s US Open. Well done Wozniacki and Errani! 🙂
~Ekaterina Makarova beaten Victoria Azarenka 6:4 6:2. It was a great match by Makarova and great win for her, but I think that both ladies are capable of playing even better tennis. They’ve played amazing throughout the tournament and they really have my respect.Well done Makarova and Azarenka! 🙂
~Serena Williams beaten Flavia Pennetta 6:3 6:2. Serena played amazing. Pennetta played pretty good match too. Both ladies deserved to be in the last 8 at this tournament and they really played great for the whole tournament. Well done Williams and Pennetta! 🙂
Caroline Wozniacki vs Shuai Peng
Wozniacki played amazing against Errani. Even thought Errani played solid, Wozniacki beaten her 6:0 6:1. Looks like Caro is back and she’s playing better than ever. Peng played amazing too. She beaten Bencic 6:2 6:1. Peng is now in her first Grand Slam semi-final and she really deserves it. This will be very interesting match. Both ladies played amazing at this tournament. Peng didn’t drop a set the whole tournament. Wozniacki is now more aggressive than ever and I really like her play style now. Peng changed her play style too. She’s mixing her game now. She combine her aggressive shots with drop shots, net play and defensive moonballs. I really likethe way she is playing now. But to be honest, I’ve always liked these two ladies, especially Peng. Both looks like really nice persons. I’m hoping that this will be high-quality match and that Peng won’t be nervous. Wozniacki played at the SFs of the Grand slam before, so I believe that she’ll win this. But Peng is not going down without a fight!
Prediction: Wozniacki in 3 tight sets
Serena Williams vs Ekaterina Makarova
Serena was impressive against Flavia. She played pretty good and she’s a favorite to win US Open 2014. Ekaterina was impressive too. She beaten Azarenka 6:4 6:2. I’m happy to see that Makarova finally gets what she deserves. Serena is the favourite here, but Makarova beaten her in past. Makarova beaten Serena once, but it was stunning victory. It was at the Australian Open 2012. It means that Makarova have Grand slam win over Serena. Both ladies played amazing at this year’s US Open. None of them lost a set for a whole tournament. Serena will be more aggressive in this match, but Ekaterina will be pretty aggressive too. I’m hoping that both ladies will give their best and that we’ll see a fabulous match. Ekaterina have a game to trouble Serena, but I don’t think that she’ll beat her. Serena is hungry. She wants to win this US Open and I believe she’ll do it.
Prediction: Serena in 2 tight sets
