    On Sunday in Seoul, Korea, in the final of the Hansol Korea Open, this year's champ in Kuala Lumpur, 20-year-old 5th-seeded #29 (career high: #22) Alisa Kleybanova from Moscow, Russia, defeated this year's finalist in Copenhagen, 28-year-old unseeded #39 (career-high: #27) Klara (Koukalova) Zakopalova from Prague, Czech Republic, 6-1, 6-3 (Alisa is shown hoisting the ceramicware after the match).

    Alisa's prize is $37,000; Klara's is $19,000. Alisa and Klara had met only once before, on carpet in the qualifying draw of the Paris Indoor tourney in 2008, when Klara won, 6-2, 6-4.

    Alisa said: "Day by day, match by match, I was feeling better about my game; towards the end of the tournament I was fighting to win the title. I'm really happy that I made it in the end." WTA story

    Klara said: "Alisa was playing very well today. I was fighting and tried my best, but it was not enough against her. The Korean fans were supporting me so much all week though, and I have to thank them."

    Alisa is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals; she has won 10 ITF singles titles, and 3 WTA & 12 ITF doubles titles. Alisa has a 28-20 singles match record in 2010.
    Klara is now 2-9 in WTA singles finals; she won her titles in 2005 at 's-Hertogenbosch and Portoroz. This has been her best season since then (35-22 so far), including wins over former #1 Dinara Safina (twice), Flavia Pennetta, Na Li, and Aravane Rezai.

    On Saturday in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in the final of the Tashkent Open, last week's finalist in Guangzhou, 22-year-old #103 (last week, #82 this week, career high #59) Alla Kudryavtseva from Moscow, Russia, won her first WTA singles title by defeating this year's finalist in Istanbul, 24-year-old 4th-seeded #72 (career-high: #22) Elena Vesnina from Sochi, Russia, 6-4, 6-4 (Alla is shown hoisting the tableware after the match).

    Alla's prize is $37,000; Elena's is $19,000. Alla and Elena had met only once before, on red clay in the qualifying draw in Rome in 2008, when Elena won, 6-3, 6-1.

    Alla said: "I was nervous today. I didn't expect to win. It was a high pressure situation. My serve helped me more than anything else. I got it in big and it helped a lot. The score line made it look like an easy final, but it wasn't." WTA story

    Elena said: "I didn't play as well as I did the whole week but I congratulate Alla on winning her first title. Alla played amazing tennis today."

    Alla is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals; she reached her first final last week in Guangzhou, where she lost to Jarmila Groth. She has won one ITF singles title and 2 WTA doubles titles. Alla is 31-24 in singles this season, winning 9 of her last 10 matches.
    Elena is now 0-4 in WTA singles finals; she also reached the final this year in Istanbul, and last year at Auckland and New Haven. Elena has won 3 WTA doubles titles, 2 ITF singles titles, and 6 ITF doubles titles. Elena has a 22-19 singles match record in 2010.

    Anna said: "I was able to win my match today in straight sets. I was practicing for two weeks in Moscow, but I still have to work on some things, especially since I have a good opponent tomorrow, Evgeniya Rodina. She's a Russian girl and I've played her before. I hope I can play better than I did today!

    "I'm pretty tired since my match, so I didn't go to the player party tonight. But I sort of feel like I'm there - I can see it and hear it from my balcony! I can see the girls dancing. I guess I'm almost there! I'm just getting room service and staying in. There are four Russian channels on TV here and I've been keeping an eye on what's going on in my country. America's Next Top Model is also on, and there's a Russian girl on it so I'm curious to see if she can stay and win the title..." Tashkent player's blog by Anna Chakvetadze
