    On Saturday at Eastbourne, England, in the final of the AEGON International, 18-year-old 6th-seeded #9 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), won her 5th WTA singles title by narrowly defeating 26-year-old #25 Virginie Razzano from Nimes, France, 7-6(5), 7-5 (Caroline is shown with the hardware after the match).

    Caroline's prize is $98,500; Virginie's is $52,500.

    Caroline said: "I felt the ball really well today, and we had some good rallies. The sets were very tight. I wish I could have closed the first set out a little bit earlier, having had 6-1 in the tie-break; and I was also up a break in the second set. But it doesn't matter how I win - I won, and that's the main thing!.” WTA story

    Virginie said: "I think I have a done great job this week. It was tough every day but I’m happy to go into the final today and I would like to give congratulation to Caroline. She played well this week, she is a great player.” tourney story

    Caroline and Virginie had met twice before, both times this year, and both on green clay. In April, in the 2nd round at Ponte Vedra Beach, Caroline, on her way to the title, defeated Virginie 6-3, 7-5. The following week, in the quarterfinals at Charleston, Caroline defeated Virginie again, 6-2, 6-0.

    Caroline is now 5-4 in WTA singles finals; she also won at Ponte Vedra Beach and reached the Madrid, Charleston and Memphis finals earlier this year. Caroline has a 42-12 match record this season.

    Virginie is now 2-4 in WTA singles finals; she won both her titles in 2007 at Guangzhou and Tokyo (the Japan Open). Virginie, who reached the Dubai final earlier this year, has a 24-13 record in 2009.

    Also on Saturday, at the Autotron Rosmalen, not far from 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, in the final of the Ordina Open, last year's 's-Hertogenbosch champion, 32-year-old unseeded # 47 Tamarine Tanasugarn from Bangkok, Thailand, became the first player ever to win the 's-Hertogenbosch title two years in a row, by defeating Tammy will play 28-year-old #50 Yanina Wickmayer from Deurne, Belgium, 6-3, 7-5 (Tammy is also shown with the hardware after the match).

    Tammy's prize is $37,000; Yanina's is $19,000.

    Thai #1 Tammy, who loves chlorophyll courts, defeated #1 Dinara Safina in the semifinals on Friday, the biggest win of her career (by rank).

    Tammy also defeated then #9 Dinara in last year's Ordina Open final, 7-5, 6-3. Ten days later Tammy had reached the 2008 Wimbledon quarterfinals by defeating then #3 Jelena Jankovic in the 4th round, 6-3, 6-2 (Tammy's previous best win by ranking). In the quarters, Tammy lost to then #7 Venus Williams 4-6, 3-6; Venus went on to capture her 5th Wimbledon singles title.

    Tammy said: "It was a tough match. Yanina did a good job running me around. I'm happy I held on to win. Last year it was a great experience to win here and I'm so proud I could do it again. I love playing here." WTA story

    Tammy and Yanina had met only once before, last year on grass in the quarterfinals of the ITF Surbiton, England tourney, when Yanina won, 6-2, 3-0 retired.

    Tammy is now 3-6 in WTA singles finals; in addition to 's-Hertogenbosch last year, she won at Hyderabad in 2004. Tammy has a 10-10 match record this year, including her 5 wins this week.

    Yanina is now 1-2 in WTA singles finals; she won her title on red clay at Estoril earlier this year, and reached the Birmingham final last year. Yanina is 30-14 in matches this season.

    It is the best outright win (by rank) of Aleksandra's career. Aleksandra defeated then # 5 Serena Williams last year in the semifinals at Stanford, 6-2, 3-1 retired, and won her first, and thus far only WTA singles title by defeating Marion Bartoli in the final the next day.

    Like Jelena, Svetlana cited difficulty in adjusting to play on chlorophyll courts. Svetlana said: "I can play on grass, I just need time. I am not a robot [who can] change in a few days." Reuters story

    Although Anna's career match record is 234-124, she is only 9-10 this year, and she has been struggling to win matches for about a year and a half. Her previous win over a top 10 player was over Marion Bartoli in the semifinals of the Paris indoor tourney in February, 2008, 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 (Anna defeated Agnes Szavay for the title the next day; she has not won a tourney since). Today's victory is Anna's best win by rank since she defeated then # 3 Jelena Jankovic in the round robin of the 2007 WTA Championships, 6-4, 0-6, 6-3.

    Anna said: "I am pleased with every win right now because it's very important to me to get back my confidence... I lost a huge opportunity in the first set but I'm glad I came back in the second and third." BBC story

    Jelena said: "It took me a while to get the rhythm out there... And then for some reason from staying so low and getting those low balls my legs got so tight and so tired, and especially in the third set I didn't have the energy in my legs anymore to bend down."

    Caroline and Aleksandra had met twice before. Last year, on grass in the 2nd round of the The Championships at Wimbledon, Caroline defeated Aleksandra 6-1, 6-1. And earlier this year on green clay in the final at Ponte Vedra, Caroline defeated Aleksandra again, 6-1, 6-2.

    Caroline said: "It was a little bit tough conditions today but it was the same for both players. In the beginning I thought I maybe made too many unforced errors.” tourney story

    About the final, Caroline said: "[Virginie] has played really well on grass and its going to be a tough match for sure. I will go out there and try and enjoy it.
    "I am pleased to get so far in this tournament. Being in the final gives you a lot of confidence on grass, especially as there have been so many great players who have won the title here."

    It is the 3rd straight year that Marion has reached the Eastbourne semis—but not the final.

Marion said: "I pushed off on my right leg to serve and felt a sharp pain in my leg... The doctors can’t really say what the problem is. I have to wait until tomorrow to see if it is just a bit of tightness and I can play Wimbledon, or if it is a strain of more than 6cm and it will not be possible for me to play."

    Virginie said: "I played my game, tried to hit every ball, tried to fight for every ball because I wanted to win the first set, win the second set... I was happy to win today because when you are playing [Marion] you have to prepare for anything. If you don’t play your game against her you are lost."

from Hard Courts by John Feinstein (page 297):

    The women have played a Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Eastbourne since the nineteenth century, after all these years still playing at the same site, Devonshire Park.

    Eastbourne is two hours southeast of London, an easy train ride or a harrowing drive along narrow country roads. It sits on the English Channel and is the English version of St. Petersburg [Florida], a small resort town where a substantial part of the population is over the age of seventy.
    Devonshire Park is a two-hundred-yard walk from the beach, a veritable melting pot of the tennis world. The old is very much in evidence: the north stand, which was built in 1881, is often filled with septuagenarians who have been coming here for as long as anyone can remember. Towering oak trees rise up behind the north stand and sea gulls often swoop by noisily, distracting the players.
    Two things make Eastbourne different than other tournaments. First, it is a six-day tournament, ending Saturday...

    The second thing that makes Eastbourne unique is the player party. Every tennis tournament in the world has a player party. On the women's tour, WTA public relations and marketing people as well as their counterparts at Kraft and Virginia Slims usually spend the first few days at each tournament trying to round up players to come to the party. For the players, one more party with one more group of sponsors telling them how wonderful they are is boring, a time-waster. They understand they have to do their share to keep these people happy, but they don't enjoy it very much.
    Eastbourne is different because of the talent show. The players--even Navratilova--show up because they expect the show to be funny. The person most responsible for making it funny every year is Elsie Burgin, director, writer, and star.
    This year's [1990's] show was built around a mock game show...

    ...Most of this was very inside humor. If you weren't part of the women's tour in some way, the jokes meant little. [Sophie] Amiach broke the crowd up with her Stefano Capriati imitation: "I deserve the credit," she said. "I produce the child. I teach the child. I coach the child. I am the star." To his credit, Stefano Capriati laughed as hard as anyone...
