#22 Aravane Rezai
5'5" 137lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday in Spain, in the final of the Madrid Open, last year's champ in Strasbourg and Bali, 22-year-old unseeded #22 Aravane Rezai from St. Etienne, France, won the biggest title of her career by defeating this year's champ in Dubai and Acapulco, 29-year-old 4th-seeded #4 (#3 in this week's rankings, #2 next week, and former #1) Venus Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, 6-2, 7-5 (Venus is shown during the match, Aravane holding the hardware afterward).

    Aravane's prize is €310,000 ($383,377 US), Venus's is €196,000 ($242,393 US).

    Venus reached break point against Aravane 13 times, but scored on only two of those occasions. Aravane scored on 5 of the 10 break points she held against Venus. Aravane also won 77% of her 1st serve points; Venus won only 60% of her 1st serve points.

    In earlier rounds in Madrid Aravane also defeated two other former #1s: #19 Justine Henin in the 1st round, and #7 Jelena Jankovic in the quarterfinals.

    Aravane said: "It's been the best week of my career. I played very well and I'm very proud of myself because it was a very tough tournament and there were a lot of players here—everyone was here—so I just believed in myself." AP story

    Venus said: "I probably wasn't at the highest of my energy today. I felt a little slower than normal, but I tried hard and I feel very good about my game. Sometimes you run into a player who's red hot, they hit every shot, they don't miss—and credit to them."

    Aravane now leads Venus 2-1 in career matches. On green clay, in the 1st round at Amelia Island in 2007, Venus defeated Aravane in a "Lawrence Welkover," 6-1, 6-2.

    But later the same year, on red clay in the 2nd round in Istanbul, Aravane defeated Venus, 6-4, 6-4.

    Aravane is now 3-2 in WTA singles finals; she won in Strasbourg and Bali and reached the final in Auckland last year, and, after her win over Venus in 2007, reached the Istanbul final. Aravane has a 18-11 singles match record in 2010.

    7-time Grand Slam tourney champion Venus is now 43-27 in WTA singles finals; she won the Dubai and Acapulco titles this year, then lost to Kim Clijsters in the Miami final. Venus has a 26-4 singles match record this year; her other two losses were to Na Li at the Australian Open and to Jelena Jankovic last week in Rome.

Dinara ready to swat a forehand, Klara driving a backhand, and after match point

    It was Klara's biggest win since she defeated #1 Serena Williams in the 1st round at Marbella last year, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.

    Klara said: "I've beaten Monica Seles [in the 2nd round of the 2003 Australian Open, 6(6)-7, 7-5, 6-3] and Serena Williams before, but this is one of my biggest wins. I don't think Dinara was at her best today, though. She didn't play for a while, but a win is a win and I'm very happy!." WTA story

    Dinara has now lost three of her last four matches, and is 5-5 for the season. She missed February, March, and most of April while recovering from a low back injury she incurred last year, but said after losses in Stuttgart and Rome that her back was not longer causing trouble.

    Dinara said: "The result today was about lack of match practice. I have hardly hit a ball in three months and you can't really expect much when you have had no practice and no matches. I have to look ahead and get some matches."

Maria wrote me a cute message afterwards, 'Today was your turn to win and well done', so we're fine! Now we will do our best together in the doubles :)." Madrid player's blog by Agnieszka Radwanska

    It was Maria's first match since March, when she was sidelined by a right elbow bone bruise.

    Maria said: "It's a struggle trying to find the rhythm... I thought [Lucie] played really solid, good tennis and did everything she needed to win the match. More solid than me anyway. I certainly had my chances in the match, and a few balls here and there that I maybe would have made if I had the matches under my belt." Reuters story

    Lucie defeated #2 Caroline Wozniacki (who was also returning from an injury) in Stuttgart on April 29, and defeated Francesca Schiavone, Shahar Peer, and Flavia Pennetta in Paris in February.

    Lucie said: "If you win against these top players, as I have the last couple of months, then you get your confidence and you realise you can be up there."

    Justine has been suffering from nose and throat infections for the past week, ever since winning the Stuttgart title.

    Justine said: "When I came back from Stuttgart, I wasn't feeling well at all. I just tried to come and see how I felt but to practice and play a match is a different story... [Aravane] was at a very good level, and I was probably below my capacity and it wasn't an easy day. I hope I will get better in a few days and get ready for the French Open now."

Virginia "Vivi" Ruano Pascual is shown during a ceremony on Sunday, April 11 in Marbella, Spain. A match in Marbella was to have been the last singles match of Vivi's career; she was later talked into taking a wild card entry at Madrid. She will play doubles until the end of this season. Vivi reached a career high of #28 at singles in 1999, but will be better remembered for her doubles titles, which include 10 Grand Slam doubles titles, 2 partnered with Anabel Medina Garrigues, and 8 with Paola Suarez. Vivi, still in great shape at 36, has won over $6 million in prize money during her career.

Serena driving a forehand, Vera and Serena driving backhands, and Serena after match point

    The 3 hour, 26 minute match was the longest of Serena's career. Each player held 14 break points against the other during the match, and each converted 5 of the 14. Serena struck 9 aces with 6 double faults; Vera, 4 aces, 4 DFs. Serena won 142 points in the match, Vera won 143.

    It was Serena's fifth match since she defeated Justine Henin in the Australian Open final, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. She withdrew from every tourney in Feburary, March and April due to a persistent left knee injury.

    Serena said: "I definitely wasn’t playing my best tennis and I was far off from playing well but after three hours I thought I had better win. I really wanted to win today because I really wanted to get some matches under my belt." Reuters story

    Alona defeated then #4 Svetlana Kuznetsova, 1-6, 6-2, 6-2, in the 3rd round in Berlin in 2008, but had never before defeated a player in the top 3.

    Alona said: "I think [Caroline] didn’t have her best day today. I know her game well and always she plays without mistakes but today there were a lot of mistakes." Reuters story

    Caroline sprained her right ankle in the semifinals in Charleston on April 17, and has gone 1-3 since then, with losses to Lucie Safarova, Maria José Martinez Sanchez, and Alona. She is playing with her ankle taped.

    Caroline said: "I’m never happy to lose a match. I’ll be back on the practice courts tomorrow and work my butt off and hopefully it’ll come back...
    "If you’ve twisted your ankle a few times like I have you need to get your confidence back. It’s especially important on clay where you need to slide and the surface is uneven. I really think I am going to be okay for the French Open."

    Ana, who still leads Jelena 6-3 in career matches,, agreed with Jelena about the quality of play. Ana said: "I don't think either of us played so well today. It's always hard to play someone from your own country, but it was also a bit hard to find a rhythm... [Jelena] had a high percentage of first serves in, and that made a big difference in the second and third sets."

    Jelena will play #57 Anabel Medina Garrigues of Spain in the 3rd round on Thursday. Jelena leads Anabel 5-0 in career matches, and three of their previous meetings were on clay.

    Patty also defeated US Open champ (and former #1) Kim Clijsters, then ranked #18, in Luxembourg last October, 6-4 3-6 7-6(6), but had not done so well since then.

    It was Nadia's first win over a current #1 player since 2006, when, in Madrid, she defeated then #1 Amelie Mauresmo in the round robin of the WTA Championships, 6-2, 6-2.

    It was also Nadia's 2nd straight win over Serena; their previous meeting was in the 3rd round in Beijing last year, when Nadia defeated then #2 Serena, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5). Serena still leads Nadia 6-3 in career matches.

    Jelena said: "I moved better and was hitting the ball much cleaner, so overall I played a much better match than I did yesterday [while defeating Ana Ivanovic in the 3rd round]. I hope to keep getting better." WTA story

    "I've played well since Indian Wells [in March]. That form just translated over to the clay. I'm enjoying my tennis, it's just one of those things. Once you start winning it doesn't matter which surface it's on, it gives you confidence... I'm feeling really good on the court and of course the confidence is growing." AFP story

    The Madrid Open was a new tourney for the WTA in 2009, and one of the largest on the revised schedule. The tourney is held at a new €157.6 million venue, with 14 indoor and 16 outdoor courts.
    Three of the courts are inside a single building called La Caja Mágica (The Magic Box), with independently-retractable roofs for each of those three courts.
    Court Manolo Santana seats over 12,000 fans, Court Arantxa Sanchez Vicario seats 3194, and Court Stadium 3 seats 2730. design paintings and construction photos
    Madrid is no stranger to WTA tennis. In 2007 and 2006, the WTA Championships were held there, and up until 2003 the WTA Spanish Open was held in Madrid.
