    On Saturday in Båstad, Sweden, in the final of Collector Swedish Open, this year's champion in Madrid, 22-year-old 2nd-seeded #20 Aravane Rezai from St. Etienne, France, defeated the 2008 champ at Fès, 25-year-old 4th-seeded #42 Gisela Dulko from Buenos Aires, Argentina, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 (Aravane is shown holding the glassware after the match).
    Aravane's prize is $37,000; Gisela's prize is $19,000.

    Aravane said: "Gisela kept fighting and showed she can run anything down. She had her tactics, I had my tactics, and it was a great match. I was just trying to show my best tennis." WTA story

    Aravane and Gisela had met twice before, and Gisela won on both occasions. On red clay in the 2008 Fès semis, Gisela defeated Aravane 7-6(6), 6-3. Later that year, they met on grass in the 1st round at Wimbledon, and Gisela won again, 1-6, 6-0, 6-2.
    Aravane is now 4-2 in WTA singles finals; she defeated Venus Williams to win the big Madrid title this year, and won last year at Strasbourg and at the Bali Tournament of Champions. Aravane has a 30-15 singles match record in 2010.
    Gisela is now 3-4 in WTA singles finals; she won Fès in 2008 and in Budapest and Forest Hills in 2007. Gisela's singles match record this year is 17-13.

    After the singles final (and some rest), Gisela returned to the court with her partner Flavia Pennetta, and they successfully defended their 2009 Båstad doubles title, defeating Renata Voracova & Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, 7-6(0), 6-0.

    On Sunday in Budapest, Hungary, in the final of the GDF Suez Grand Prix, last year's Budapest champion, 21-year-old 7th-seeded #50 (career high: #13) Agnes Szavay of Hungary (res: Wolkersdorf, Austria) again defeated last year's Budapest finalist, 31-year-old #58 (and former #7) Patty Schnyder from Baech, Switzerland, 6-2, 6-4 (Agnes is shown holding the ceramicware after the match).

    Agnes's prize is $37,000; Patty's prize is $19,000.

    Agnes said: "It was a tough match, especially because of the weather—it was really hot. We also both had long matches yesterday, so we were both pretty tired. But we tried to do our best... It's unbelievable to win in Hungary again. The crowd was great, just like last year. To win two times at home, I can't describe this feeling." WTA story

    Agnes and Patty's first meeting was in the 2009 Budapest final, which Agnes won, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. Their only meeting since had been in the 1st round in Madrid this year, where Patty won, 5-2 retired, when Agnes could not continue due to a right hamstring strain.

    Agnes is now 4-2 in WTA singles finals; her other titles came in 2007, in Palermo and Beijing. Agnes is 22-14 in singles matches this year.
    Patty is now 11-15 in WTA singles finals; she won the Bali title in 2008. Patty has a 14-12 match record for 2010.

The Collector Swedish Open (formerly the Nordic Light Open), once held at Stockholm's 1912 Olympic Stadium, was moved to Båstad in 2009. Båstad has been the site of the ATP Swedish Open since it began in 1948; the women also played there until 1990. Båstad Tennis Stadium is a few hundred yards from the beach, close to Pepe's Bodega, a local restaurant and nightclub. The stadium was rebuilt in 2002 to accommodate the Hotel Skansen underneath the seaside bleachers.

    Gisela said: "It was difficult to play against Flavia, she's my best friend. It was the best tennis I've played in a long time though. To reach the final here means a lot. I wasn't that confident at the beginning of the tournament, but in the second round I saved match points, and since then I've been feeling good again. To be in a final again is the best feeling. I didn't expect to come this far."

    About her final opponent, Aravane Rezai, Gisela said: "[Aravane] has been improving a lot. She has been winning tournaments against big players. I'm going to try to play my best and win."
