Barcelona 2011: Semifinal

Sara made her 3rd semifinal of the year, as she beat Alberta Brianti 6-2, 6-3 today. Sara played a good match, and broke Brianti 6 times. She had some problems to close out the match (she led 4-0 in the second set), but overall it was a very good performance. In the semifinal Sara will play against Lucie Hradecka. They have played once before, last year in the Fed Cup semifinal, also played on clay. Sara won that match in two sets.

Tomorrow could be a very busy day for Sara. Because it rained in Barcelona tonight, the doubles quarterfinal was stopped at 3-2 in the first set, so after both singles semis (the other semi is between Roberta Vinci and either Polona Hercog or Laura Pous Tio), Sara and Roberta have to finish their doubles quarterfinal, and if they win, they also have to play the doubles semifinal after that. And hopefully Sara will have some time to relax as well, because it’s her 24th birthday!
