Zvonareva moves into US Open semifinal

BY foxsports • September 8, 2010

Vera Zvonareva moved a win away from her second Grand Slam final of 2010, defeating Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 7-5 at the U.S. Open.

The Russian won the quarterfinal match by getting balls back and watching her 31st-seeded opponent self-destruct. Estonian Kanepi, a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon this year, made 60 unforced errors in a windy Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday.

Zvonareva reached the Wimbledon final this year, where she lost to Serena Williams

The match featured a total of 88 unforced errors and only 28 winners, 10 by Zvonareva. The tone for the match was set early, when the players traded service breaks right away to make it 1-1 and combined for 12 unforced errors and one winner through the first two games.
