#42 Eleni Daniilidou
& #22 Vera Zvonareva
    On Friday in Sydney, in the final of the Medibank International, 25-year-old top-seeded # 1 Justine Henin of Belgium (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), narrowly defeated 22-year-old 2nd-seeded # 2 Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia (who, like Justine, resides in Monte Carlo), 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 (Justine is shown during the match, and with the glassware afterward).
    Svetlana took a 3-0 lead in the third set, and held a break point against Justine to go ahead 4-0. But Justine held serve, and won the next two games as well to even the match. After Svetlana held serve to make the score 4-3, Justine won the next three games to end the match.

    Justine said: "Sveta played a great match, I thought. She was really intense and aggressive, didn't make many mistakes, and really pushed me to the limits tonight. That's the kind of match I really needed before the Open. It's good to see that I could deal with the nerves tonight because I was in a pretty bad situation in the third set. I remained calm and played my best when I was under the most pressure." WTA story

    Svetlana said: "[Justine] pushed me to make mistakes, it's not like I just missed. Maybe I had chances and sometimes I should've been more aggressive, but she definitely played better in the important moments."

    Justine now leads Sveta 16-2 in career matches, and Justine won their previous encounter, the final of last year's US Open, 6-1, 6-3.

    6-time Grand Slam tourney champ Justine is now 40-16 in WTA singles finals, and won eleven of her titles in the past year, including the French Open and US Open. Justine has not lost a match since the 2007 Wimbledon semifinals; she has won 28 straight.
    2004 US Open champ Svetlana is now 9-13 in WTA singles finals; she reached 6 finals in the past year, and won the Pilot Pen title in New Haven.

    In Hobart, Tasmania, on Friday, the singles final of the Morilla International was not played, and 25-year-old unseeded # 42 Eleni Daniilidou from Thessaloniki, Greece, won the title in a walkover, because 2nd-seeded 23-year-old # 22 Vera Zvonareva from Moscow, Russia, injured her left ankle while practicing before the match (both ladies are shown after the award ceremony).

    Vera, who rolled over her ankle while practicing earlier in the day, will proceed to Melbourne and have an MRI scan to find out if she is fit for the Australian Open. Vera said: "I could barely walk; it was painful right away and I thought, 'Oh my God, I have to pack my bags and go home. I have no expectations at the moment about the Australian. Hopefully it's not as bad as it looks right now." WTA story

    Eleni recorded wins over top-seeded # 21 Alona Bondarenko and # 39 Flavia Pennetta on her way to the final. Eleni said: It's very special, that's for sure. But I feel very sorry for Vera, as she has had a great week."

    Eleni, whose career-high ranking was # 14 in 2003 (and who has been held back by wrist and thumb injuries) is now 5-1 in WTA singles finals. Vera, whose career-high singles ranking was # 9 in 2004 (she has been slowed by a left wrist injury since then) is 5-5 in previous WTA singles finals.

    Ana said: "It was a tough match and [Virginie] was playing really well. In the second set I let her dictate too much, but in the third set I felt I raised my game when I had to. I had my back against the wall and I was just trying to focus on holding my serve and then look for any opportunity to break her. I felt she was also a little bit nervous and luckily I got my opportunity and took it."

It's never easy the first match of the season, you have to forget about the last season and really get focused on now and that's another kind of pressure. I felt good on the court and I felt the surface pretty good and now I'm just looking forward to my match against Ana [Ivanovic], which will be a tough one."

She's going to go in as the favorite and that's fine with me, but I have beaten her in the past and I have another opportunity to do so tomorrow. I'm just going to go there and play my game, just to play every ball. She's No.1 but she's not perfect, you know, so I'm going to have chances."

    In qualifying and the 1st round, Jelena won four straight matches for the first time since 2005 in Rabat, and in Hobart she was been playing against stronger opposition. It appeared that Jelena was playing her best tennis since October 2003, when she defeated Kim Clijsters (ranked # 1 at the time), Daniela Hantuchova, and Patty Schnyder.
    Jelena sprained the ankle during her qualifying final, and the injury grew worse during her 1st round win over Martina Muller. Jelena said: "I had a good run here and I felt like I was playing well, but against someone like [Flavia] you need to be able move so much more... It’s not something that’s really serious, so hopefully it will settle down."
    Jelena, who has been offered a wild card into Australian Open qualifying, said it is "maybe doubtful" she will be able to play. Jelena also said: "I’ll have to make a really hard decision on Thursday morning." tourney story

    (Jan 11, 2008) Unranked former WTA # 4 Jelena Dokic defeated # 110 Marina Erakovic, 6-4, 6-1 on Thursday in Aussie Open qualifying. But in the 2nd round on Friday, possibly still slowed by a sprained right ankle, Jelena was defeated by # 117 Tammy Tanasugarn of Thailand, 6-2, 6-1.

    (Jan 6, 2008) Former WTA # 4 Jelena Dokic, granted a wild card into Hobart qualifying, has reached the main draw. Jelena defeated Evgenia Linetskaya in the 1st qualifying round, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, # 65 Yvonne Meusburger in the 2nd, 6-3, 6-2, and # 84 Yaroslava Shvedova in a qualifying final on Sunday, 6-2, 6-3. The win over Yvonne was Jelena's biggest win (by ranking) since she defeated then # 48 Kristina Brandi in the 3rd round in Miami in March, 2004.
    Tennis Australia officials have indicated that Jelena has a good chance to receive a wild card for the Australian Open main draw. But if she is not still busy in Hobart, Jelena has said she would prefer to play through Australian Open qualifying, which begins later this week.

    (May 30, 2007) The Rebound Ace courts used since 1988 for the Australian Open and the events leading up to it will be replaced, beginning in 2008, by a less cushioned surface created by the US company Plexipave, called Plexicushion, which will be installed by Aussie company William Loud. WTA story

    (Jan 4, 2007) Both tourneys this week used the new WTA drawsheet form, which is not improved over the previous form in any way whatsoever, and is in fact much worse. Rankings are displayed only for the seeded players, and are not shown for the rest of the draw (the old form displayed the rankings of all participants). Why would we not want to know the player's rankings?
