Polona Hercog in semi-final, well this is big suprise for everyone. I don't think that even Hercog expected that she will reach this stage. But this was more suprise looking to some facts before tournament such is very poor form of Hercog who simply was not able anywhere to win match, but it was not suprise if we know how good she has played in Charleston in previous four rounds when only Marion Bartoli managed to take a set against her. It is well known that Hercog has strong service but in Charleston, her service was just amazing. She won many games by losing no more than one point on her serv. So, it was mainly to 0 or to 15. So, I do not see reason why it should be different today when we are talking about Polona's service.
On the other side, Lucie Safarova also has played more than good tennis and lost only one set in previous rounds. It was against Wozniak in tie-break. QF against Vera Zvonareva who was the strongest oponent, at the same time was the best match for Safarova.
So, this should be close and interesting semi. I have no idea who could win this match, but I expect over games. Line from William Hill is much lower than at other books.
My advice is over 20.5 games.
