    On Sunday in Linz, Austria, in the final of the Generali Ladies, the 2008 Linz champion (and 2008 French Open champ), 22-year-old 7th-seeded #36 (and former #1) Ana Ivanovic of Serbia (residence: Basel, Switzerland) handily defeated the 2008 champion in Bali, 31-year-old #44 (and former #7) Patty Schnyder from Baech, Switzerland, 6-1, 6-2 (Ana is shown holding the tourney's logo-trophy after the match).
    Ana's prize is $37,000; Patty's is $19,000.

    It was Ana's first title since she won in Linz in 2008. Ana said: "Winning again after two years is so wonderful, just unbelievable. I have been waiting so long for this and I worked hard to achieve it... I felt very well and hit the balls well. Patty played well all week so I tried to put her under pressure from the start. That paid off." AP story

    Patty had defeated Daniela Hantuchova and Andrea Petkovic to reach the final. Patty said: "[Ana] took the balls so early and placed them so well... I am disappointed, but it still was a great week. My draw wasn't easy, so I was happy to stay in the tournament until the end."

    Ana now leads Patty 5-4 in career matches, but Patty won the first four times they met, all in 2005, and Ana has won their last four meetings. They had not met since 2008, when, on the red dirt at Roland Garros in the quarterfinals of the French Open, Ana defeated Patty 6-3, 6-2.

    2008 French Open champion Ana is now 9-4 in WTA singles finals. This was the first final she had reached since Indian Wells in March of last year. Ana has a 28-19 match record in 2010.

    Patty is now 11-16 in WTA singles finals; she also reached the final at Budapest in May of this year. Patty has a 27-19 match record this season.

    On Sunday in Osaka, Japan, in the final of the HP Japan Open, last year's 's-Hertogenbosch champ (and a 2008 Wimbledon quarterfinalist), 33-year-old #97 (career-high #19) Tamarine Tanasugarn from Bangkok, Thailand, defeated the all-time Japanese #1, 40-year-old 6th-seeded #57 (and former #4) Kimiko Date Krumm, 7-5, 6(4)-7, 6-1 (Tammy is shown holding the hardware after the match).
    Tammy's prize is $37,000; Kimiko's is $19,000.

    Tammy said: "I tried to be more aggressive in the third set and I finally made it. This is a great feeling and hopefully I can continue to play like this and get a good start to 2011." AP story

    Kimiko said: "I just tried my best and fought as hard as I could. Nobody wants to lose, so I tried everything. Now I'll play some ITF events followed by the Asian Games, so I'll be continuing to play tennis the rest of the year."

    Tammy and Kimiko had played twice before, both times in ITF tourneys, on carpeted surfaces, after Kimiko's return from 12 years of retirement. In 2008 Tammy defeated Kimiko, 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, and in 2009 Kimiko defeated Tammy, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

    Tammy is now 4-7 in WTA singles finals; she won at 's-Hertogenbosch in 2008 and 2009, and at Hyderabad in 2004. Tammy has a 27-15 match record this year.

    Kimiko is now 8-7 in WTA singles finals. Kimiko won the Tokyo Japan Open and San Diego titles in 1996, then retired from professional tennis. After 12 years in retirement, she returned to play in 2008, and in her first tourney, the $50,000 ITF Gifu, Japan, event, she went through qualifying and reached the main draw final—where she lost to then #86 Tammy Tanasugarn.

    Kimiko won 3 ITF titles in 2008, and one more in 2009. But Kimiko was 0-8 in WTA main draw matches after coming out of retirement—until she won five straight to take the Seoul title last year.
    Kimiko's singles match record this season is 25-18.

Samantha driving a forehand, Kimiko following one, and after match point

    It was the first time in WTA Tour history that a player over 40 years old has defeated a player currently ranked in the top 10.

    Although Samantha scored on 7 of the 10 break points she reached against Kimiko, Kimiko converted an amazing 10 of the 12 break points she held against Sam.

    Kimiko said: "I played very hard. Sam is a very good player and she is different from the others—she has a very good serve and is very fast. I had to run a lot today, but I was focused and knew I had nothing to lose." WTA story

    Samantha said: "I had several chances to win, but Kimiko played very well today. She moves very fast and hits very flat. She's doing really well."

    (Oct 10, 2010) WTA #1 (until Monday, Oct 11, when Caroline Wozniacki takes over the top spot) Serena Williams, recently sidelined by foot injuries, has withdrawn from the Generali Ladies in Linz, Austria. Serena felt pain in her right foot while training in Florida on Saturday, and a scan showed the foot had not healed properly. AP story
    Jarmila Groth was not made 9th seed, because the tourney managed to quickly locate an acceptable substitute for Serena: 2008 Linz champ (and former #1) Ana Ivanovic. This resulted in a rearranged draw with Ana as 7th seed.

    (October 11, 2010) WTA #2 (and former #1) Serena Williams says she is likely done for the season. Serena cut her feet on broken glass at a restaurant in Europe in July, causing her to miss this year's US Open. She was to return to play at Linz, Austria, this week, but withdrew on Saturday after reinjuring her right foot while training in Florida.

    In a post on her official website, Serena said: "I am likely out for the year now... In order not to make this worse, I have to chill on my physical workouts but I will immediately begin rehabbing as soon as I get the Doc's OK." AP story

    Serena's injuries originally required 18 stiches, 12 on her right foot and 6 on her left foot, and surgery on her right foot to repair a torn toe tendon. USA Today interview

    Serena cut her foot after her Wimbledon title victory on July 3, and the injury was at first not thought to be serious. Serena then lost to Kim Clijsters in an exhibition in Belgium on July 8. Asked how she was able to play the exhibition with the injury, Serena said: "Those Belgian doctors and waffles."

    Serena underwent surgery in Los Angeles on July 15. Serena had previously withdrawn from three tourneys leading up to the US Open and from all of her 2010 World Team Tennis matches due to the injury. AP story - July 20 AP update - original AP story
