Sara made her second semifinal in a row in Mexico. In the quarterfinal in Acapulco she beat Estrella Cabeza Candela 6-4, 6-3. It was far from an easy match, Sara got broken twice in each set.
But in the end, she did win the match in straight sets, which is what counts. In the semifinal she will play against her friend and doubles partner Roberta Vinci. After their singles semifinal, they will also play the semifinal in doubles; in the quarterfinal they beat Brianti/Camerin 6-4, 6-2.
