Allison Fisher faced Ga Young Kim in today’s first semi-final match. Fisher took the first set 4-3, then led 2-1 in the next set before Ga Young Kim came back to win that set 4-3, forcing a one game sudden death playoff! Ga Young Kim won the lag in the final game, then took the game, set, match after a safety battle, earning herself a spot in the finals.

Atlanta’s Monica Webb faced off against Karen Corr in the second semi-final match. In a complete opposite of the first semi final, Monica Webb won an unbelievable eight straight games to defeat Corr in straight sets, 4-0, 4-0. She now faces Ga Young Kim in the ESPN3 live televise finals!
