    Maria said: "I'm really happy with how I was hitting the ball today. Patty is a tough opponent, and I was aware I couldn't give her even a little opening as she would have taken advantage. I was really pleased to get the win over her." WTA story

    Patty said: "Today [Maria] went for her shots and most of the time made them, so she deserved this win. When she gets on a roll like that she's really difficult to compete against. But I can't complain as I've had a great week. I played fantastic tennis and beat some top players."

    Maria, who defeated Patty last year in the San Diego semis, now leads Patty 6-1 in career matches, and also won their previous meeting, on red clay in the 4th round of this year's French Open, 3-6, 6-4, 9-7.

    Tammy held six break points during the match, but was unable to convert one. Maria said: "I was able to get myself out of trouble when I needed to, and it's good to get these kinds of situations when you're down but can get yourself out of them. I served well, did all the right things and moved well. Today, I was able to get into a rhythm. Things were going very well. I feel good."

    Former # 14 Elena has been sidelined by injury for most of the past 2 years; hopefully her 1st round win and a good performance against Nadia shows that she is now ready to return to the WTA Tour full time.

    Nadia said: "Overall, I was happy with how I was able to focus. I was happy with the way I was able to turn it around and not lose my service game when I was serving for the match. There are parts of my game that need improvement but I'm just getting back into playing matches after having some time off."

I was happy with the way I was able to focus in the third set. I definitely needed to take my game to the next level because she kept playing the same. I went more for my shots. I expected a tough match from her because I know her. We've practiced before and I knew how good she was."

Martina driving a forehand, Michaella following a cannonball serve, and Martina following a runnning backhand

    Martina has played very little since March due to a hip injury. Martina said: "I was tested right away. I knew [Michaella would] be tough. She's had some great results, but now I know where I stand and I think I'm in a good place...
    "This is really the first time I've felt like myself on court since Indian Wells. It felt like I was being reborn this year - I haven't felt this good in a long time."

    Martina is swinging a new axe, instead of her previous Yonex NanoSpeed RQS 11 she is wielding an all-black racquet with no labels whatsoever, not even on the base of the grip. This would appear to indicate that Martina is negotiating with a racquet company other than Yonex, and they have not yet come to terms. The new bat is a narrow-beam model, and, from the few photos out so far, does not appear to have Prince O3 ports, and does not look like recent models from Head; possibly it is a Wilson.

    After Maria won the first nine games, Tatiana won three in a row, breaking Maria's serve twice. Then Maria won the last three games to take the match.

    This was the biggest complete-match victory of Maria's career. Maria defeated her good friend, then # 1 Maria Sharapova, in a semifinal in Beijing in 2005, but Maria S. was forced to retire from that match due to injury, trailing 6-4, 2-1. Maria won her first-- and so far only-- WTA singles title the next day, defeating then # 30 Anna-Lena Groenefeld, 6-3, 6-4. Maria's previous best completed match victory was over then # 8 Nadia Petrova in the 1st round in Dubai last year, 6-4, 6-1.

    Jelena said: "Maria played very well, and I was struggling the whole match. I had my chances but didn't do the right things; she took her chances... It's my first tournament after vacation and I need to get back into my training."

    Marion said: "I hesitated too much, which made the difference; I took the ball too late, which you can't do with Elena, because she can defend really well. The more she runs the better she plays. Against Elena you think you're in control of the match but if you're not quick enough getting to the ball she'll push you back.
    "I thought the level of the match was good. We didn't make many mistakes. My level of play is fine. I just need to make a few adjustments."

    Maria is 4-0 against Anna Chakvetadze, whom she will play in the semifinals on Saturday. Maria said: "I've got to be aggressive and smart when I need to be smarter. [Anna] plays similarly to Hingis - she's very patient and doesn't give you a lot of easy points. I will have to step it up when I need to. We always have close ones, but it has gone my way the last couple of times."

    Anna took a 5-2 lead in the 1st set, then lost the set in a tiebreaker. Venus then took a 5-3 lead in the 2nd set, and held a match point, but could not convert, and Anna won the 2nd set tiebreaker. It was Anna's 12th consecutive match victory; she won the Cincinnati and Stanford tourneys in the past two weeks.
    Anna was 0-2 against former # 1 Venus prior to this match, and lost to Venus, 1-6, 4-6, in the Fed Cup semifinals (in which Russia defeated the USA) three weeks ago at Stowe, Vermont.

    Anna said: "It was the biggest win of my career. I was running in every point and fighting until the end, and I think that's why I won. I'm really happy I won, but I'm already thinking about my match tomorrow...
    "[Venus] just played better in Vermont. She won that match and I couldn't do anything. Here it was easier because I knew what I had to do, a game plan in my mind, and it helped that I played against her three weeks ago."

    Venus said: "I really wanted to win this match. I felt like I could win it, but it didn't work out."

    Anna had won 12 straight matches prior to this one, and won the titles the last two weeks at Stanford and Cincinnati. But Maria now has a 5-0 career record  against Anna, although their last three matches were close.

    Maria said: ""I did what I had to do. Once I got the break in the second set I felt like I went on cruise control. I didn't feel as sharp as I did in the previous matches - I was making a lot of unforced errors off of the returns - but after the break, it was just a good situation to be in." match recap

    Anna said: "I felt really tired, and Maria played really well. She hit a lot of winners, but I couldn't run and couldn't play. Maria is a great player and well done to her but I could not fight today like I did yesterday against Venus... It was a good tournament for me anyway. I beat two good players. I had hoped to go further but I'm happy."

    Patty said: "I just served great in the tie-breaker, then I kept focusing in the second set. The conditions at night made it tough to be aggressive, so it was good my footwork was there and I could play my game. I was happy with today." match recap

    Elena said: "I was trying to change something in the second set, but [Patty] was playing very well today and it was difficult for me. It's difficult to do what you want when she is dictating. She had answers for everything I was trying to do today. She's a very talented player, very unique. There is nobody like her."

    Caroline said: "The first match in a tournament is always difficult so I'm just happy I got through. I didn't play my best but I was fighting and trying to do my best. I am pretty calm normally but today, maybe because it was like a home match, I felt a bit nervous. Whenever I'd get a break she'd break me right back, so when I was up 5-3 in the second set of course I didn't feel great. And she broke me again! But I got that break back and won the match so I'm happy." Stockholm player's blog by Caroline Wozniacki

    Caroline said: "I'm very happy about my win today over Elena Vesnina, who was the No.6 seed. It was a big fight but we're good friends, and it's always tough to play a friend. I think the main reason I won was because I was running and fighting as much as I could. I have a few things I definitely want to improve on, but right now I'm just happy. She had her doubles to play right after and I had to go to my massage, so we didn't get much of a chance to talk. I usually get a massage whenever I can after a match or else I'll feel tired the next morning!
    "I didn't go for my morning run today... I actually slept in quite a bit! After we had lunch we went to the club and I played for an hour to warm up for my game. I hit with Michaela Johansson, a good Swedish player. It was my first time hitting with her, but she plays a lot like Vesnina so I'm sure it helped me! Usually I'll hit with a player or my dad. My dad is my coach, so he obviously helps a lot." Stockholm player's blog by Caroline Wozniacki

    (Jul 20, 2007) # 1 Justine Henin has withdrawn from the Acura Classic in San Diego due to a wrist injury. Justine hopes to be healthy in time for the Rogers Cup in Toronto, which begins August 13.
