It's true, champions find a way. This was an excellent match for the
first two sets, considering the heat.

Yes, they closed the roof and K couldn't regroup. She does need to
keep that bandaid on her head, it's costing her.

Excellent women's QF, imo.

I like Kuznetsova a lot, however I was not shocked by her choking away
the match in the second set. I expected it.

Serena looked sluggish to me throughout the first two sets. Kuznetsova
should have capitalized, yet failed to do so, as many others have
against Serena over the years when in the same boat. It's almost as if
Serena can count on the choke to get herself out of trouble at this
point--she still has that certain something that puts fear into
opponents even when they seem to be on the verge of eliminating her.
Even when she doesn't look to be in top fighting form, her opponents
inevitably end up wilting before her. Her nerves are superior to most
others on the tour, IMO. I think it is fair to say that while she
looks better at this Aussie Open than she did a couple of years ago,
she's carrying some extra weight around still, but it doesn't seem to
hurt her much. There are just too many chokers at the top of the WTA
rankings.
