Pattaya and Paris Day 5: Is Lisicki back?

Pattaya QF:

Sabine Lisicki def. Marina Erakovic 5-7 6-3 6-2
Sorana Cirstea def. Anastasija Sevastova 6-3 6-0
Nina Bratchikova def. Ayumi Morita 6-1 3-6 6-1
Maria Kirilenko def. Elena Vesnina 7-6(6) 6-3

Paris QF: (so far)

Kiki Bertens def. Lucie Safarova 6-1 7-5

Sabine Lisicki def. Marina Erakovic 5-7 6-3 6-2


Sabine Lisicki seems to be back on track with a hard fought win over Marina Erakovic. Despite losing serve in the crucial moment in the first set, Sabine bounced back and clinched a relatively straightforward win after that. This might be a sign that the belief is back as Lisicki tends to doubt herself and gets herself in an emotional mess. She will be facing Bratchikova for a place in the finals and she sure looks good to reach there.

Kiki Bertens def. Lucie Safarova 6-1 7-5


Oh Lucie... Just when you made some wins to seem like you're back on track, you dump a match like this to lose to someone you're not supposed to. Lucie's statistics for this match is absolutely laughable, making 11 winners to 33 unforced errors. I think I might have won against Safarova if I stood across the net. Bertens reaches her first Premier semi-final thanks to Lucie's gift and must be thanking her lucky stars as she only entered the main draw as a lucky loser.
