Andrea is in the semi-finals in Pattaya!

Andrea Hlavackova will play the semi-finals of the WTA tournament for the second time in her career! She defeated Chinese Shuai Pang clearly 6:2, 7:5 in the quarterfinals of the PTT Pattaya Open tournament in Thailand and in the semi-finals match she will play against Ekaterina Makarova (RUS).

Mainly excellent service was that what kept and supported Andrea in an hour and a half long match. Also this week she found out about her nomination for Fed Cup duel in Sevilla. “It was great match. I am glad that in Pattaya they have also doubles, because German Lisicki didn´t want to play after my successful first round in single, so I would play on Monday and then on Friday. It is similar as I would start a new tournament again. Two doubles kept me in a match load,” Andrea stated.

Her performance was almost without any mistake for this time. “I was really great with my services and imposed my style of the game to my opponent. I´m really happy, that I can feel changes on the court mainly because of my physical and psychical preparation. Second set I turned from the state of 3:5, when Chinese could serve on the deuce in sets. This is not happing just like that with a player as Peng is,” she added.

This was not the end of Andrea´s evening in Pattaya. After that she was playing doubles in which she was playing with Spaniard Anabel Merrida Garrigues against uncomfortable pair Alla Kudryavtseva (RUS) and Anastasia Rodionova (AUS). Unfortunately the semi-finals of doubles made better opponents, who won 6:3, 7:5.
