Na Li's into the final now. Ouch, Wozniacki, had a match point in the second. That really, really hurts.

Holy shit, go Na Li! Think I'm going to be backing Kim, if she makes it to the final.

Love a good upset, now need Vera Zvonareva to beat Clijsters, so that 7 won't inundate us with "Aussie Kim" stories.

And it would be great to see Zvonareva win, she's been so consistently competitive for a decade now, like Schiavone.

Looks like most of the books actually had Li as a small favorite over Woz before the match.

Li did look pretty good in that second set, it's gotta be said and she was brilliant against Petkovic

I don't have anything against Wozniacki, but she just doesn't appear all that convincing in the matches I've watched. Hangs very much on the baseline, and sometimes seems to collapse onto one knee and almost into a heap when returning some shots, which is bizarre, particularly for a professional. Whatever she does, she's still managed to snare herself the #1 ranking. She gets the job done... Mostly.

Wozniacki managed no winners in the 3rd set. I think it just about says it really.

I don't really mind her at all, but much of the time her gamestyle is very defensive and she just tends to push her opponent around the court, hence the "pusher" tag associated with her by tennis fans. She's very good defensively and gets many of the hard balls and to add to that she's one of the strongest players on the WTA Tour mentally. Other than that, she really doesn't have much at all but she has made the most of what she has so far.

I'll be backing "Belgian Kim" and watch the final on mute, should she get through.

Federer v. Djokovic tonight.

Hopefully a 5-setter.
