    On Sunday at La Costa Resort, near San Diego, California, in the final of the Mercury Insurance Open, the 2009 French Open champ, 25-year-old unseeded #21 (career-high: #2) Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated the 2008 champ at Eastbourne, 21-year-old 4th-seeded #11 (career-high: #8) Agnieszka Radwanska from Krakow, Poland, 6-4, 6(7)-7, 6-3 (Svetlana is shown with the glassware after the match).

    Svetlana's prize is $107,000; Agnieszka's is $57,150.

    Svetlana failed to convert 4 match points in the 2nd set tiebreaker.

    Svetlana said: "It was like starting all over again. You let her come back, you let her see you choke. You have to be doubly stronger in the third set, and I was, because I believe I am strong enough." AP story

    Agnieszka said: "[Svetlana] was playing very powerful shots and she was pushing me around. It was hard to play. She's a very good baseline player. It's hard to have good rallies with her."

    Svetlana now leads Agnieszka 7-3 in career matches. Svetlana also won their previous meeting, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the final last year in Beijing, 6-2, 6-4.

    Barcelona-trained 2004 US Open champion Svetlana is now 13-18 in WTA singles finals; she won last year at Roland Garros, Beijing and Stuttgart, but this is the first final she had reached this year. Svetlana's 2010 singles match record is 18-12.

    Agnieszka is now 4-2 in WTA singles finals; she won Pattaya City, Istanbul, and Eastbourne in 2008, and reached the Beijing final last year. Agnieszka's 2010 singles match record is 27-14.

    On Sunday at Copenhagen, Denmark, in the final of the e-Boks Danish Open, this year's champion at Ponte Vedra Beach, 20-year-old top-seeded #4 (career-high: #2) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated 7th-seeded 28-year-old #50 (career-high: #27) Klara (Koukalova) Zakopalova from Prague, Czech Republic, 6-2, 7-6(5) (Caroline is shown with the goodies after the match).

    Caroline's prize is $37,000; Klara's is $19,000.

    Klara said: "I was a little bit nervous in the beginning. I improved a little bit in the second set, but not enough. It's a shame for me, but Caroline was playing so consistently and not making any mistakes...
    "It was a very good week for me, and it gives me a lot of confidence now going into the US Open. I'm looking forward to come back next year."

    Caroline said: "It was nice to play a tournament again after a long break. I'm healthy again and I really wanted some matches...
    "The crowd, as always, was great. Here in Denmark there's always lots of things for me to see and do, and it was a busy week for me, but I enjoyed it. It's nice to see so many people come and watch me play. It's great for Danish tennis. I really enjoyed my week." WTA story

    Caroline and Klara had met only once before, in the quarterfinals of the Japan Open in 2007, when Caroline defeated Klara, 6-3, 2-6, 7-6(3).

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 8-7 in WTA singles finals; she won at Ponte Vedra Beach this year, and at New Haven, Eastbourne and Ponte Vedra Beach last year. Caroline has a 35-13 singles match record in 2010.
    Klara is now 2-8 in WTA singles finals; she won her titles in 2005 at 's-Hertogenbosch and Portoroz. Klara has a 27-18 singles match record this year.

    Vera said: "Had a tough match yesterday here in San Diego but got through. Cibulkova fought hard and really pushed me to raise my level in the third set. Feels good to win my first singles match since playing the Wimbledon final." Vera Zvonareva at Twitter

    Vera also said: "There were moments I would give myself an 'A,' there were moments I would give myself a 'D.'... At the end of the day, I won the match and that's the most important thing... [In the 3rd set] I was able to play a little bit deeper, and not let her dominate like she did in the second set. And my serve also got better."

    Ana said: "I have been working so good, but it's not coming together in the matches. I think it's just confidence. I don't really believe in my shots at that particular moment, and that's what's really tough."

Jelena said: "I think I had lots of chances but with the lack of practice and fitness, I was pretty tired, and it showed tonight. I had some fear moving and was in doubt at times whether I should have been running or not. I didn't know what to expect from myself today."

    Alisa said: "After the first few games I picked up the pace. I figured I would see what happens, and even better if I won the first set. My job today was to play, fight and win."

I thought hardcourt would be my best surface to play her, or grass, but she's No.5 in the world and I'm still happy with my performance. I was still in there."

    Wimbledon finalist Vera was very upset with her own play. Vera said: "I don’t think [Coco] surprised me. I’ve seen her play before. It’s more that I surprised myself. I started pretty good and then I just started playing stupid. I didn’t change anything, I just kept playing stupid."

I went to a $100K tournament and won there—I had won there the year before and it was really nice, so I went back. Then I brought my form to Palermo and Bad Gastein and I'm really happy here.
    "This is my best year so far, but I have to keep working. I don't want to stay at my career-high for five seconds. I want to keep getting better."

    "I practised with Klara a few days ago, and she plays even flatter."

*#74 q Anna Chakvetadze RUS d #48 s6 Polona Hercog SLO 6-4, 6-3

    Anna said: "It looked easy, but it was not, and to be honest I'm actually not very happy with the way I played today. I made a lot of unforced errors and my movement wasn't as good as I want it to be.
    "Still, it's a good result for me to be in the semis here and I'm excited. I think I'm still far away from my best, but on the upside I'm getting my confidence back and starting to play better. I need to play a top 10 player to see how close I am.
    "I've lost to Caroline twice and never beaten her; we haven't played for two years and I'm sure she's improved since then. I'll try to play my best and enjoy it."
