7th WTA Singles Title
in seven finals

    On Sunday in Paris, in the final of the Open Gaz de France, 20-year-old top-seeded # 7 Anna Chakvetadze from Moscow, Russia, defeated 19-year-old 7th-seeded # 20 Agnes Szavay from Budapest, Hungary, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 (both ladies are shown during the match, and Anna after match point).

    Anna said: "The 3-2 game in the third set was really important, because I was able to break [Agnes] for 4-2. I knew that wasn't the end and she would keep fighting, but I felt I was playing well also and knew I needed to keep concentrating and I could win.
    "I had a good first set as well, but I made so many errors and had so many problems in the second set. The crowds were great though--I think they helped both of us play well today." WTA story

    Agnes said: "The third set was a really great set; I think we were both playing really well. [Anna] just wasn't giving me any unforced errors and she was playing better in the middle of the set, especially when she broke for 4-2. The 3-2 game was the most important game of the match, I think."

    Anna and Agnes had played only once before, on the red clay at Roland Garros in the 2nd round of last year's French Open, when Anna won, 6-4, 6-7(1), 6-4.

    Anna, who will rise to # 6 in the rankings on Monday, is now 7-0 in WTA singles finals; she won at Stanford, Cincinnati, 's-Hertogenbosch, and Hobart last year. Unfortunately, burglars entered Anna's house in Moscow in December, injuring both her and her father and making off with a fortune. Not surprisingly, Anna got off to a slow start in January, losing in the 1st round in Sydney and the 3rd round at the Australian Open. But Anna now appears to be back to her usual good form, and she has a 7-2 match record for the year.

    Agnes is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals; both her titles came last year, at Beijing and Palermo. Agnes, too, got off to a slow start this year, losing in the 1st round at both Gold Coast and the Australian Open. But she looked very good this week, with wins over Olga Govortsova, Tathiana Garbin, Daniela Hantuchova, and Elena Dementieva.

    In the Pattaya final on Sunday, 18-year-old top-seeded # 21 Agnieszka Radwanska from Krakow, Poland, defeated 33-year-old 7th-seeded # 81 Jill Craybas from East Greenwich, Rhode Island, 6-2, 1-6, 7-6(4).

    Agnieszka said: "The first two games I lost very quickly, and then I won six in a row - then it was everything for [Jill] in the second set. It is very strange and hard to explain. In the third I was also ahead but she came back and was fighting to the last point. I was nervous and everything was upsetting me. But I was also fighting until the last point. I was very relieved when I finally won it, and that's the most important thing." WTA story

    Jill said: "I just kept playing my game, and I think [Agnieszka] got a little bit nervous towards the end. I'm disappointed I lost but I fought my hardest. I played as well as I could today and I have no regrets because I gave 100 percent and can't ask for more than that."

    Agnieszka and Jill had also played only once before, on a chlorophyll court last year in the 1st round at Eastbourne, when Agnieszka won, 6-2, 5-7, 6-0. Agnieszka is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals; she won her first title last year in Stockholm. Jill is 1-1 in WTA singles finals; she won hers at the Japan Open in Tokyo in 2002.

    In the 3rd set, neither player held serve until the 8th game, when Anna finally held, then broke Amelie once more to finish the match.

    Anna said: "Amelie was receiving well and I didn't feel like some of my first serves went through. So I was under pressure... When we got new balls in the third set, I won that game because balls were much faster, so it was easier for me to serve." AP story

    Amelie said: "It was really tight. I was receiving well and [Anna] was in trouble on her serve. I lacked a bit of lucidity at 4-3 [in the 3rd set]."

    Marion said: "I had some trouble to stay focused on the match. I made some unusual mistakes in the second set that helped Virginie get back into the match. I lost a bit of my concentration, because I knew she was suffering."

    Anna said: "It was kind of weird, because in the first set I wasn't feeling too well; but then things changed quickly...
    "I want to recover and try to be fresh for tomorrow. Agnes is a very tough opponent. She's has a very good backhand. It won't be easy but I'll try to do my best."

    Marion said: "I'm feeling pretty disappointed. I was really excited to play here. I started off really well and was leading in the second set, but then all of a sudden everything started going wrong. But it was still a great week for me, the first time I got to the semifinals here in Paris."

    Elena broke Agnes's serve to take the lead three times in the 3rd set, but Agnes broke Elena back each time--including when Elena served for the match, leading 5-4.

    Agnes said: "[Elena] really likes [it] when somebody is hitting flat against her and she never misses on those balls. So I tried to mix it up a little bit and it worked." AP story

    Elena said: "Agnes was playing a smart game. She was mixing up a lot. I think she has a good chance to win this tournament because she's in good shape... I feel like I made too many unforced errors today. I was rushing a lot. I was trying to go for the winner. But I wasn't prepared for it. As a result, I was missing a lot."

#NR Sesil Karatantcheva
5' 7" 140lb RH 2H-BH

    (Feb 5, 2008) On Monday in La Quinta, California, in the final of the Charlie M Desert Classic, 18-year-old former # 35 Sesil Karatantcheva from Sofia, Bulgaria (and Sarasota, Florida) defeated 28-year-old # 122 Sandra Kloesel from Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, 6-4, 7-5 (photo shown).

    2005 French Open quarterfinalist Sesil is currently unranked because she has played in only 2 tourneys in the past year--in fact, in the past two years. Sesil was suspended for two years after a prohibited steroid was detected in her system in 2005. She appealed the ban, backed by her father and their lawyers and doctors, contending that the substance detected (nalderone) was due to pregnancy (which ended in a miscarriage). Sesil lost the appeal.

    She has not lost anything since (well, ok, one doubles match). Sesil is 16-0 in 2008, having won her way through qualifying and main draws to garner two ITF titles in Surprise, Arizona, and now at La Quinta. Desert Sun Karatantcheva interview - ITF Karatantcheva record
