    On Sunday in Charleston, South Carolina, in the final of the Family Circle Cup, last year's champion in Osaka, 25-year-old 8th-seeded #11 Samantha Stosur from Gold Coast, Australia, defeated this year's champion in Pattya City, Thailand, 25-year-old 7th-seeded #22 (career-high: #5) Vera Zvonareva from Moscow, Russia, 6-0, 6-3 (Samantha is shown hoisting the glassware after the match).

    Samantha's prize is $107,000, Vera's is $55,500.

    Samantha had a great day, Vera did not. Sam struck 36 winners and won 86% of her 1st serve points; Vera won only 37% of her 1st serve points. In fact, Vera scored only 5 points in the entire 1st set. After Samantha's lead reached 6-0, 3-0, Vera began to get into the match, but it was too late.

    Samantha said: "To be able to play that well in a final is a great feeling. You always hope you'll do that, but to actually go and perform that way is very, very pleasing." WTA story

    Vera said: "I think [Samantha] played really well, but I also let her play really well... Overall I think it's a good start to the clay court season though... Hopefully I can keep improving my game and play well the rest of the clay court season." AP story

    Samantha now leads Vera 5-2 in career matches, and has won the last five times they have played. In their previous meeting, last month on a hardcourt in the 4th round at Indian Wells, Sam defeated Vera 6-2, 7-5.

    2009 Osaka champ Samantha is now 2-5 in WTA singles finals. Sam has an 17-5 singles match record this season.
    2009 Indian Wells champion Vera is now 10-12 in WTA singles finals. Vera's match record in 2010 is 19-6.

    On Saturday in Barcelona, Spain, in the final of the Barcelona Ladies Open, 29-year-old top-seeded #17 Francesca Schiavone of Italy (residence: London, England) defeated last year's Barcelona champion, 26-year-old unseeded #54 (career-high: #37) Roberta Vinci from Taranto, Italy, 6-1, 6-1 (Francesca is shown making friends with the hardware after the match).

    Francesca's prize is $37,000; Roberta's is $19,000. Francesca now leads her friend and compatriot Roberta 3-1 in career matches. Roberta won their previous meeting, last year, on the same red clay in the Barcelona semifinals, 0-6, 7-6(2), 6-4.

    Francesca said: "I felt good today. I played at a very high level and I was having fun playing. Roberta had some problems with her ankle so it wasn't easy for her. It just wasn't her day. For me, this is good preparation for Fed Cup and upcoming tournaments on clay, like Stuttgart and Rome." WTA story

    After her loss at singles, Roberta returned to the court and won the doubles title, teamed with her compatriot Sara Errani, defeating Timea Bacsinszky and Tathiana Garbin, 6-1, 3-6, (10-2).

    2009 Moscow champ Francesca is now 3-10 in WTA singles finals (but has won three of her last five); she won her first title at Bad Gastein in 2007. Francesca, a 2009 Wimbledon quarterfinalist, has a 16-8 singles match record this year.
    2009 Barcelona champ Roberta is now 2-1 in WTA singles finals; she won her first title in Bogota in 2007. Roberta has a 15-9 match record in 2010.

    Charleston: The 56 player main draw for Charleston has 16 seeds, with 8 1st-round byes. There are 8 qualifiers and 5 wild cards in the main draw. Qualifying (2 rounds) is on Saturday & Sunday. Main draw play begins on Monday at 10am.

    The Family Circle Cup, one of the longest-running WTA-only events in the US, was held at Hilton Head until the Family Circle Tennis Center was opened in the spring of 2001. A 32-acre facility with a 10,200 seat stadium, the Family Circle Tennis Center has 13 green clay (Har-Tru) and 4 hard courts, all lighted for night play. A 10,000 square foot clubhouse also serves as the corporate headquarters for the Family Circle Cup. The FCTC was built with public help at a cost of $15 million.

    The 2nd set was tied at 5-5, but Caroline lost only three points in the last two games of the match.

    Caroline said: "I'm sure the crowd helped [Patty] today. She really got pumped up and was believing in herself. It's just important to keep focused on your own game... I think I played pretty aggressively, especially in the beginning. Second set, I let her dictate a little more." AP story

    Patty said: "I lost all my service games at the end, and my first serve really didn't do any harm. It's also because [Caroline is] really covering the box well, and reads my serve well, and she didn't miss one return. So definitely serve was no help for me today."

    It was Daniela's first win over a player who had previously been #1 since she defeated Martina Hingis in the 4th round at Indian Wells in 2007.

    Daniela said: "Definitely, I felt very good on the court today, even though the first set was not easy... [In the 2nd set] I tried to put a little more on the ball, move [Jelena] a little more around, and stay more aggressive, and that made the difference."

    Jelena said: "I played really well in the first set, and I played really aggressive. But then I just stopped, and I especially had trouble hitting my backhand."

Vera about to connect with a forehand, and Caroline ready to swat one

    The injury occurred when Caroline, trailing 2-4, rolled her right ankle over while fielding a drop shot. After treatment, Caroline attempted to continue to play, but it was no go.

    Caroline will have an MRI scan on Sunday, but expects to be healthy again before next month's French Open. Caroline said: "I was surprised that I could stand on my leg, which was very positive, actually. But as soon as I was moving to the sides, it was impossible, so I couldn't play... As it looks right now, it's not too bad." AP story

    Vera, who tore ligaments in her right ankle at Charleston on April 16 last year, did not fully heal for the rest of the season, and underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue in November.

    Vera said: "It's great to be in the final, but it's not great to be in the final this way. I don't wish anyone to be in that situation because last year it was very difficult for me... I told [Caroline] to take care about it, and I have some experience with that if she needs some advice."

    "Overall, I'm very pleased. Obviously very happy to come back from 5-2 in the second set. I was glad to finish it in two sets." WTA story

    (April 12, 2010) This year the total compensation for the 2009 Family Circle Cup was reduced from $1,000,000 to $700,000 without any fanfare. In 2009, the "prize money" had been raised from $700,000 to $1,000,000. The increase was mostly in the later rounds: 1st round qualifying losers (who usually really need the money) received $629 instead of $520 (a 21% increase), but the tourney champion (who usually doesn't need the money) received $187,815 instead of $107,000 (a 76% increase). Now the amounts are back to the standard "Premier 700" levels.
