Tsvetana Pironkova is Lu Yen-hsun of women's tennis

Women's tennis kinda sucky these days so I don't really watch it lately. I really miss those days where Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic rule the WTA.

Nevertheless, it's worth to mention Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova's achievement last night, who made it into the semifinals at Wimbledon after beating Venus Williams 6-2, 6-3.

Just like Rendy Lu Yen-hsun, she is currently ranked world no.82 and managed to pull off the biggest upset at Wimbledon thus far.

Pironkova, whose home country does not have a single grass court, will play for a spot in the Wimbledon final against the queen of meltdown V
era Zvonareva who knocked out Kim Clijsters 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.
