    Batting a thousand: On Friday in Tokyo, in the semifinals of the Japan Open, the Wimbledon champ, top-seeded 17-year-old # 8 Maria Sharapova from Nyagan, Siberia, Russia (with residence in Bradenton, Florida), crushed 28-year-old # 63 Mashona Washington 6-1, 6-0 (Maria is shown after match point). Maria is now 6-0 in WTA singles finals.

    Mashona had won the last time they played, and this may have helped Maria a bit with her concentration this time. Maria said: "Compared to the last time we played, I think I served much better and basically played very well. Last time, we played on a slower surface, and the points were very long. This time, I dictated the points much better. I knew I had to be extremely tough today because [Mashona] is also playing very well. I knew I had to be ready from the start." story

    On Sunday in Filderstadt, in the final of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, 28-year-old 2nd-seeded # 2 Lindsay Davenport of the US won the unfun way, defeating top-seeded # 1 Amelie Mauresmo of France 6-2, retired (Lindsay is shown seated in on a new Porsche Carrera S with the modest-looking tourney trophy-- winners in Filderstadt get to choose between cash and the car or cash and, uh, more cash). Amelie was forced to stop the match due to a strained adductor muscle.

    Lindsay said: "It's very unfortunate. I could tell she was having a hard time moving after the time out. I'm pretty sure I've never won a final in this manner before. It's quite an empty feeling actually."

    Amelie said: "I felt a little tear or tightness in the third game pushing off for a shot to my left and it got worse as the set went on. I could hardly move... It's too soon to tell how bad it is. I hope it's nothing serious, I don't think so, but it's important to make sure... It's very disappointing. It was a good match, very intense. Hopefully as Lindsay said on the court, we'll have more chances to play again in the future." story
    Amelie plans to fly to Paris and have the injury examined on Monday, to determine whether she'll be able to play in this week's Kremlin Cup in Moscow, where she is once again the top seed.

Filderstadt:
    28-year-old Californian Lindsay Davenport has now won 45 WTA singles titles in 78 finals (if you include the 1996 Olympic title), including 3 Grand Slam tourneys. She won 3 in a row earlier this summer at Stanford, LA, and San Diego. Before the ascent of the Williams sisters, Tracy Austin was quoted as rating Lindsay's serve as the best in the WTA. Lindsay hits the ball hard and deep, but she is not as mobile as other top players. Lindsay wears Nike and hits with a Wilson "H Tour". Lindsay, who was trained in her youth by Robert Lansdorp, has been coached by Adam Peterson since March, 2003. Davenport career record

    24-year-old Amelie Mauresmo was born in Geneva, Switzerland and has a residence in St. Germains en Laye, France. Amelie is 13-13 in WTA singles finals, she won Tier I titles 2 weeks in a row earlier this year in Berlin and Rome. This was the 6th final Amelie has reached this year. Amelie wields a Dunlop "300G" bat, wears Nike attire and shoes, and is coached by Loic Courteau. Mauresmo career record

    The main draw for Filderstadt had 8 seeds, with 4 1st-round byes. There were 4 qualifiers and 3 wild cards in the main draw.
    The time in Filderstadt is UCT (GMT, Zulu, Greenwich...) plus 2 hours. That is US EDT +6 hours, =PDT +9 hours.

Tokyo:
    17-year-old Maria Sharapova has now won 6 WTA singles titles in 6 finals, including Seoul, Wimbledon & Birmingham this year, and last year in Tokyo and Quebec City. Maria wears Nike and swings Prince bat. Born in Nyagan, in the Siberian region of Russia, she started at the Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, Florida at age 7, and still has a residence near there. Maria spends time in California also, where she is coached by Robert Lansdorp, who helped Tracy Austin, Lindsay Davenport and Pete Sampras perfect their strokes.

    28-year-old Mashona Washington is the sister of former successful ATP pro & current broadcaster MaliVai Washington. Mashona, who was born in Flint, Michigan and is based in Houston, Texas, is having the best year of her career. This was Mashona's 1st WTA singles final. She reached the QFs at New Haven, by defeating her Tokyo final opponent, Maria Sharapova in the 2nd round 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, which Mashona called the biggest win of her career. Mashona wears Nike and chops with a Babolat axe, probably the terrifically popular "Pure Drive" model.

Amelie Mauresmo

    Patty took a 5-2 lead in the 1st set, then Amelie won the next 5 games in a row. Amelie said: "I needed a little time to get into a rhythm. I haven't played since the U.S. Open, and [Patty] was much more ready... I made too many unforced errors at the beginning. Maybe I wanted to make the points too quick... I knew I was only one break down, and I'd had opportunities on her serve at the beginning so I didn't panic at all."

Anastasia Myskina

    Anastasia led Nathalie's friend Justine Henin-Hardenne 5-1 in the 3rd set of their Olympic semifinal in August before Justine won 7 of the last 8 games to take the match, 7-5, 5-7, 8-6. That loss has bothered Anastasia ever since. Anastasia said: "I was really nervous today. After the Olympics I lost a lot of confidence. It was tough for me because that was my goal for the year, to play really well there, and I was really upset after I lost to Justine. But hopefully now it's in the past."

*#85 Tamarine Tanasugarn THA d #42 s3 Shinobu Asagoe JPN 6-0, 6-4 Tues

    Tammy said: "I think it was tough for her being the top-seed woman from Japan at this event, so there were a lot of expectations, especially after her US Open performance. It's always hard to play in your home country. I know that I don't play well at my home events... I was happy to win this match though because she really picked up her game in the second set." story

    Shinobu said: "I couldn't play my own tennis at all. Tamarine let her guard down a little after taking the first set 6-0, so I tried to raise my game at the beginning. Tamarine hits low balls and changes the pace a lot. She slices her serves, so she plays a game that is quite different for me, but having come off a couple a really good weeks, I thought I might do better. She played well today, but it was really my own poor play that was the deciding factor."

    Maria said: "[Samantha] was playing really great and obviously picked up her game in the second set and the beginning of the third, hitting unbelievable shots all over the court. I played her in Seoul last week, but the surface was slower, so on this surface, she did more damage with her serve. She has a very big serve." story

    Nicole said: "I played with a lot of confidence today. I wasn't really focused on who I was playing exactly, just focused on my game."

    Tatiana said: "I couldn't play the match that I needed to beat her. In the second set, she started to make a few mistakes, so I started to move in more, be more aggressive, but it wasn't enough to beat her. She was taking the ball early and being really aggresssive, which was something that I didn't do and what I really need to do."

    Defending Japan Open champ Maria, who won last week in Seoul, and reached the semis the week before in Beijing, has never played in so many tourneys in a row. Maria said: "I was a little tired today after playing two weeks in a row, and yesterday, I had a tough match. I'll get a lot of rest tonight and hopefully be fresher than I was today. I definitely want to defend my title, but I have to take it one match at a time."

    Rain in Tokyo precluded practice, and has postponed the doubles final until Sunday. But Center Court there has a retractable roof, allowing play through the rain. Maria said: "I had a slow start. It's quite difficult when you don't have a proper warm-up. I double-faulted, and [Tammy] broke my serve right away. But I picked up my game and served and returned better, which was key."
    About her final opponent, # 63 Mashona Washington, Maria said: "[Mashona] has a big serve, so I'll have to do something with my returns. She's a good runner, so I have to dictate play more. I'm not going to think about my opponent, though, just focus on my game and what I have to do."
