    On Monday in Beijing, in the final of the China Open (postponed from Sunday due to rain), this year's champion at Tokyo, New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach, 20-year-old top-seeded #2 (#1 in Monday's rankings) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated this year's US Open & Wimbledon finalist (and champion in Pattya City, Thailand), 26-year-old 2nd-seeded #4 (career-high: #4) Vera Zvonareva from Moscow, Russia, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 (Vera is shown during the match, and Caroline holding the hardware afterward).
    Caroline's prize is $775,500, Vera's is $387,750.

    Caroline said: "I thought in general I played a really, really good match. I just stayed focused, I kept running, I tried to keep the pressure on [Vera], tried to keep her moving and I thought we played a really, really good match." AP story

    Vera said: "Lost a tough match to Caroline in the final tonight. She played well and congratulations to her. Flying back to Moscow tomorrow and going to take a few days to rest before getting ready for the Kremlin Cup. Thanks to all the fans in Beijing for the support this week! See you all next year." Vera at Facebook

    Caro and Vera are now tied at 3-3 in career matches. Vera won the last time they played, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt last month in the semifinals of the US Open at Flushing Meadows, 6-4, 6-3. Caroline won their meeting before that, also on Deco-Turf this year in the final at Montreal, 6-3, 6-2.
    Both ladies will rise to new career highs in Monday's WTA rankings, Caroline at #1 and Vera at #3.

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 12-7 in WTA singles finals; she won last week at Tokyo, and at New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach this year, and reached the Indian Wells final. Caroline has a 59-15 singles match record this season, and is 29-2 during the post-Wimbledon hard court season.

    2010 US Open and Wimbledon finalist Vera is now 10-16 in WTA singles finals; after she won at Indian Wells last year she tore ankle ligaments at Charleston, and had surgery to remove scar tissue in November. In January at the Australian Open Vera said it would still take a while before her ankle was fully healed; now she is 100%. Vera has a 46-17 match record this year.

    Vera said: "Dinara is a great player. She has been No.1, so she will be a great player forever. It's always difficult to play against her. I don't think either of us found our best tennis today, but you can't expect to play your best tennis in the first match of a tournament. New stadium, new balls, new atmosphere... you're trying to find your rhythm."

    In the 3rd round on Thursday, Caroline will play #30 Petra Kvitova. Caroline leads Petra 2-1 in career matches, but Petra's victory came the last time they played, on grass in the 4th round of this year's Championships at Wimbledon, 6-2, 6-0. Caro will not want that to happen again.

    If Caroline defeats Petra on Thursday, when the new rankings come out on Monday she will be the #1 player in the world for the first time in her career.

    Caroline said: "Tomorrow is just another match. Hopefully I can win it." WTA story

    It was the biggest victory, by rank, of Bojana's career.

    Bojana said: "It was very hard to play Jelena. We are such good friends off the court, we go out for dinner together and enjoy each other's company. It's a real shame two Serbian girls had to play first round, but you can't choose who you play. But I don't think Jelena was playing her best tennis today." WTA story

    Jelena said: "Bojana played really well. She was solid off the baseline and really gave me a hard time. Since I twisted my ankle in Portoroz [in July] I really haven't found my form. I'm still trying to get back to the tennis I'd like to play, but I'm not there yet. I have to work hard and keep going to get back to that level."

    Maria struck 18 unforced errors, including 7 double faults; Elena fired 5 aces with no double faults. Maria broke Elena's serve only twice in ten opportunities; Elena converted four out of seven break points she reached against Maria.

    Maria said: "I'm definitely not as good as I wanted to be. After the US Open I wasn't able to train as much as I would've wanted to, and I feel like the last couple of weeks I've just been trying to play catch-up. My rhythm hasn't been where it should be. Obviously it's disappointing, but I've lost and won many matches in my career. I'll just have to regroup and move forward."
    "I have to give a lot of credit to [Elena]. She played extremely well. She was really aggressive and hit the ball really deep and consistently. I wasn't able to do the things I do. She served extremely well and had me off-balance. It was definitely her day."

    Ana will play Caroline Wozniacki in the China Open quarterfinals on Friday. Though they have not played since 2008, Ana leads Caroline 3-0 in career matches. The last time they played was on red clay at Roland Garros in the 3rd round of the 2008 French Open, when Ana, on her way to the title, defeated Caroline 6-4, 6-1.

    Ana said: "I know I have to play aggressively. I definitely have a strategy in mind I'm going to try to do tomorrow. Serving and returning is going to play a big part, as well."

    About playing Vera Zvonareva in the final on Sunday, Caroline said: "I feel good out there on court, and hopefully tomorrow I can play a good match against Vera. She’s in really good shape, so it’s not going to be easy. I’m just thinking about trying to be 100 percent fit for tomorrow."
