    On Sunday in the Luxembourg final, 22-year-old top-seeded # 3 Kim Clijsters from Bree, Belgium, defeated 20-year-old unseeded # 30 Anna-Lena Groenefeld from Nordhorn, Germany, 6-2, 6-4 (Kim is shown after match point).
    Kim won her 1st WTA singles title in Luxembourg in 1999. Kim said: "I played pretty well today, and stayed aggressive because [Anna-Lena] is a tough opponent. This is where it all started for me so I'm really pleased to win again here today. One year ago I was injured, some months ago I was ranked around 130, and right now I am really pleased that I'm healthy and playing well." interview
    Anna-Lena said: "It was close in the beginning, and I had many chances in the first three games. [Kim] is very experienced and she took her chances. I am really happy with the last two weeks and reaching two finals. Today maybe I went for it too much, but she puts lots of pressure on you so you have to go for your shots."

    Kim and Anna-Lena had met only once before, on a hard court in the Stanford semis two months ago, where Kim won 6-4, 6-0.
    2005 US Open champ Kim has now won 29 WTA singles titles (8 this year) in 42 finals. Anna-Lena has yet to win a WTA singles title (she has 7 ITF singles and 3 WTA doubles titles) and was playing in only her 4th WTA final. But she was in the final for the 2nd week in a row. Reaching the final in Bejing last week raised Anna-Lena's ranking to # 23 this week (she is # 30 on the drawsheet, which uses last week's rankings), and next week she should be in the top 20 for the first time in her career.
career records: Kim - Anna-Lena

    In the Guangzhou final on Sunday 20-year-old 5' 7½" unseeded # 154 Zi Yan from Cheng Du, China won her first WTA singles title the unfun way, defeating 25-year-old 5' 1½" 6th-seeded # 54 Nuria Llagostera Vives from Barcelona, Spain, 6-4, 4-0 retired, when Nuria could no longer continue due to a left hamstring strain. Zi is now 1-0 in WTA singles finals (she has 2 WTA doubles titles); Nuria is 1-1 in WTA singles finals, having won the title earlier this year in Rabat (she has 8 ITF singles and 2 WTA doubles titles). They had never before met on the field of combat.
    Zi said: "Until this week, I really didn't think I ever would win [a WTA singles title]. The conditions were very difficult all week because of the extreme heat, but I managed to hold up against it." WTA story
    Nuria said: "I just couldn't move today... I hurt my leg and I just couldn't play properly... Yan played very well and I give all the credit to her for playing a great match."
career records: Zi - Nuria

    In the Seoul final on Sunday 16-year-old 2nd-seeded # 25 Nicole Vaidisova from Prague, Czech Republic, who received her primary training at the Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, Florida, defeated another Bollettierian, 20-year-old top-seeded # 17 Jelena Jankovic, of Serbia & Montenegro (whose residence is still listed as Bradenton), 7-5, 6-3 (photo shown). Nicole is now 3-1 in WTA singles finals, while Jelena fell to 1-3 in that department. They had played only once before, on a hard court at the NASDAQ-100 in Key Biscayne last March, where Nicole also won, 6-2, 7-6(6).
career records: Nicole - Jelena

    7th-seeded # 39 Shinobu Asagoe withdrew from Seoul after she incurred a muscle injury in practice, and was replaced in the seeds by # 48 Shahar Peer, who was listed on the revised drawsheet as s7, in front of s8 # 44 Marion Bartoli. This is, of course, not correct procedure, Shahar should be s9, and is listed as such on this page.

Kim Clijsters

    Kim said: "I'm very pleased with winning my first match here today. It's always tough to adjust to the conditions after playing outdoors the whole summer, but I got used to the court pretty quickly today." WTA story
    About playing Francesca Schiavone in the quarterfinals, Kim said: "I'm looking forward to that match. It will be a lot of fun because [Francesca] is a fun person to play against."
    Kim is now 1-0 in the self-coached mode. Kim was quoted in Belgian newspapers on Wednesday as saying she will not seek a replacement for her former coach Marc De Hous. Kim had previously announced that she plans to retire in 2007 (at age 24). Kim said: "I want to play my remaining two years without a coach. I don't need one any more. I think I'm adult enough to know what I have to do. I believe I know my body and my tennis better than anyone."

    After taking a 3-0 lead in the 1st set, Daniela called for the trainer. Daniela said: "I had inflammation of tendonitis, and felt it three days ago, so I couldn't practice before the tournament. I had treatment on the ankle, but the problem in the match was not the ankle, it was the tape. It was too tight, and I had no feeling in my foot. I tried to forget about it but I couldn't. It's annoying to ask for the trainer after just three games, and I don't like to do it, but I had no choice." Reuters story

    Dinara said: "Before I came here I couldn't hit three successive balls in the same place, so my goal was just to win a match...
    "I was playing on clay for the Fed Cup and had two days practising with different balls, then I come here and it's completely different, so I was very nervous, but with every set I am feeling better."

    Kim trailed 2-5 in the 2nd set before winning the last 5 games. Kim said: "All the other times when I have played [Francesca] the games were tough with tough rallies. Physically she is one of the toughest opponents I have to play because she is physically fit and gets lots of balls back with heavy topspin."

*#30 Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER d #10 s2 Nadia Petrova RUS 2-6, 6-3, 6-2

    Kim said: "I don't think either of us played our best tennis today. I was always trying to keep pressure on [Nathalie] but felt a little tight and I was making a few mistakes. My footwork and movement was not as it should be and I made a few unforced errors but that's tennis." Reuters story

    Kim and her final opponent, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, have met only once before, on a hard court in the Stanford semis two months ago, where Kim won 6-4, 6-0.
    About that match, Kim said: "The first set was close. [Anna-Lena] was really aggressive and maybe a little inconsistent there, but she has improved a lot since then. Movement is going to be very important as you need it when you play against tall [5' 11"] girls like her."

I feel I have a little disadvantage because of my height, but I make up for it by never giving up on any points. I always fight to the end. I can play well on all surfaces, so I think this helps me also... It's been a difficult week, but I feel I'm getting used to the heat. I will just go out there and do my best tomorrow."
