    On Sunday in California, in the final of the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford University, the 2009 champion at Miami, Memphis, and Brisbane, 20-year-old 14th-seeded #15 (career-high: #6) Victoria Azarenka of Belarus (residence: Scottsdale, Arizona), defeated this year's champion at Memphis and Strasbourg (and 3-time Grand Slam champ), 23-year-old 5th-seeded #15 (and former #1) Maria Sharapova of Russia (residences: Manhattan Beach, California & Bradenton, Florida), 6-4, 6-1 (Victoria is shown with the glassware after the match).

    Victoria's prize is $107,000; Maria's is $56,000.

    Victoria said: "I tried to start aggressive right away and not let [Maria] command play. Once she gets on a roll and is being aggressive, it is really hard to keep up. So you always want to stay with her and play aggressive. So that’s what I did." tourney quotes

    Maria said: "I went up 4-3, and played a really sloppy game on her serve, and [Victoria] didn’t serve that great of a game. I really started making unforced errors off the return, and she really stepped it up and took advantage. I was always on the defensive after that... I don’t think I served that smart... I gave her too many looks on second serves...
    "She has always served consistently well when I have played against her. She doesn’t have a huge serve, but is pretty smart and mixes it up. I felt like I had a good read on her second serve, but wasn’t really making them so it doesn’t matter how you read it."

    Victoria and Maria are now tied at 2-2 in career matches. Maria won their previous meeting, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 2nd round in Beijing last year, 6-3, 6(5)-7, 7-5.

    Victoria is now 4-6 in WTA singles finals. She won her first three titles last year; this year she also reached the finals at Duabai, where she lost to Venus Williams, and at Eastbourne, where she lost to Ekaterina Makarova. Vika has a 29-13 singles match record in 2010.

    2004 Wimbledon, 2006 US Open, and 2008 Australian Open champion Maria is now 22-10 in WTA singles finals. Due to right shoulder rotator cuff tendon tears, Maria played only one match (a doubles match) between August, 2008, and May, 2009. This year, Maria incurred a right elbow bone bruise at Indian Wells in March, and that kept her sidelined until May. Maria has a 24-7 match record this season.

    On Sunday in Istanbul, Turkey, in the final of the Istanbul Cup, this year's champion in Monterrey, 19-year-old 3rd-seeded #31 (career-high: #25) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, from Moscow, Russia, defeated her compatriot from Sochi, 24-years-old-today unseeded #58 (career-high: #22) Elena Vesnina, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4 (Anastasia is shown with the hardware after the match).

    Anastasia's prize is $37,000; Elena's is $19,000.

    Anastasia said: "Elena played really well and aggressively and didn't let me play my game. I knew if I won the second set I had a good chance of winning the match. It was so hot... I'm so happy to win my second title." WTA story

    Elena said: "It was tough conditions, but we both fought until the end. I started feeling ill at the end of the second set, but I pushed myself as hard as I could... I have to give credit to Anastasia, she played very well and deserved the win."

    Anastasia and Elena had met only once before in adult singles, on a hardcourt in Bratislava in an ITF tourney in 2008, when Anastasia won, 3-6, 6-2, 6-1.
    Anastasia is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals; she won her first title in Monterrey earlier this year. Anastasia's singles match record in 2010 is 30-14.
    Elena is now 0-3 in WTA singles finals; both of her earlier finals were 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 13-15 singles match record this year.

    Agnieszka said: “It was hard for me out there today. This was my first match in four weeks, and I was playing on a hard court. The first match is always the tough one and it doesn’t matter who is standing on the other side. You have to fight with yourself and try to stay in the match. This was a good test for me and I’m very happy to have won the match."

    Marion said: "[Ashley] played really well, especially in the second set. For someone who hasn't played that much lately, she was giving me a hard time out there."

    Marion will face Ana Ivanovic in the 2nd round. Marion said: "The matches Ana and I have had in the past have been really, really close. I'm definitely looking forward to it. I think this is great preparation for me if I want to do well at the US Open."

    Maria said: "I served really well but returned quite poorly, so there was a little bit of an imbalance. I returned better when I had to, but I had no choice because I couldn’t rely on my serve the whole match. I don’t think I took advantage enough of her second serve. I really could have done a better job of that and will try to do so going forward.”

    Jie had defeated Maria at Indian Wells in March. Maria said: "That was a scratchy match. I wasn't feeling good and I didn't want to remember it...
    "After you don't play for a while you have to be ready from the beginning. I wanted to adapt as quickly as I could. [Jie is] a competitor and a good player and I had to be ready."
    "I'm just trying to work myself toward the US Open. I'm just happy to be back playing."

    Jie said: “It’s always a tough match playing against Maria, because she is always fighting and hits so hard. For me, this was a good first match on the hard court. After Wimbledon I had an injury to my left hand, so I didn’t have a lot of practice with my backhand before coming here. I am looking forward to the next tournament.”

    Victoria said: “I think this was a very good first match for me. I played my shots and stayed aggressive. I played it point by point, which helped me to win two games in a row. I felt good out there...
    “You cannot get caught up with your results. For example, I had a lot of injuries during the clay court season but now I am healthy and ready to go. The most important thing for me is to finally get healthy and take it match by match.”

    Ana said: “I served well and actually didn’t make many mistakes, so I am happy to see that a few of the things we worked on during the past month came into play today... I think the biggest difference was with my fitness. I really felt like I was getting to every ball and managed to maintain the rallies. Not having to pull the trigger too early kind of put me at ease and I managed to stay strong. I knew {Alisa] was a tough opponent and hard court is her better surface, so I am happy to have this victory.”

    Kimiko said: “Since Wimbledon, I had a short a short break and this was my first time playing on hard court since Miami. We were not really sure what would happen. We played against Safina at Roland Garros but that was a different situation. It was on red clay and I had an injury in my calf and she wasn’t in the best condition. I tried to forget everything, but I needed to stay focused. I watched a DVD with my coach last night so I had a good idea on how I needed to play.”

    Dinara said: “In the important moments [Kimiko] played pretty well. I had so many chances but I didn’t use them. It was my first match back from injury, so I am pretty positive and will keep working hard and try to improve day by day... My back feels fine and that is the most important thing for me and I will continue working hard.”

    Melanie trailed 1-5 in the 3rd set. Melanie said: “I thought I was playing well the whole match. I think when it got close, [Aleksandra] got a little tight and made a couple of mistakes. When I got down I had nothing to lose and relaxed. When it got to 5-4 I thought 'I just won three in a row. I can win another one.' When it got to the third set it was anybody's game."

    Dominika said: “I did not feel comfortable from the beginning because it was my first match. It’s never easy to play against that type of opponent because I have never seen [Hilary] before and did not know what to expect. A lefty serve is always troublesome for me because it falls differently and has a different spin. That forced me to wake up a little bit...

    “Last year was pretty up and down for me. I had my best result in the semifinals at Roland Garros and after that, I couldn’t play for four months because of a stress fracture injury. So it was really tough for me to come back. I decided to change my coach and we are starting to work on things that will hopefully move me forward.”

    Hilary said: “Because of the quality of [Dominika's] ball and the consistency of that quality, I would say she is the best player I have played. When you see the girls hit, you are like ‘wow, they are good.’ But when you actually get out there and see that ball come at you, it’s like ‘Wow, I have a lot of work to do.’ Her footwork is unbelievable...
    “I think the big difference was when it got tight in the game, like a 30-all or a deuce, she really bore down and you could tell she was going to play her game. I was going to have to come with my best, and it was just going to be my best against her best. But I felt like I didn’t really bring that same type of intensity to the big points.”

*#158 q Christina McHale USA d #83 q Kai-Chen Chang TPE 3-6, 6-0, 6-2 Tue

    Christina said: “I’m excited to have won today and be able to move on. [Kai-Chen] was really playing well in the first set, so it was hard for me to do much. But I was able to get a rhythm going in the second and stay with it through the third. I am really excited...
    “I definitely felt better having played the extra matches in qualifying and also felt more comfortable. I was able to handle the tight points better.”

    Samantha said: “Playing such a good first set probably helped me get through the second set. I think [Christina] probably tried to play a little more aggressive in the second set, as she had nothing to lose after dropping the first set. She kept a good attitude throughout the whole thing and that probably kept her in the match. But I was able to hold my break points and when I did get an opportunity to break her serve, I was able to do that.”

    Elena said: "It’s never easy to play after a layoff of two weeks without competition, so it took me awhile to get into the game. Kimiko was playing very hard and flat, and I can’t remember the last time I played against someone with that style of game. We had never played before. It’s pretty amazing how well she is playing and she is in great shape. She is very quick and knows how to use her speed, so I was trying to play deep enough and not go flat with her."

    Marion said: "It’s been awhile since [Ana and I] have played; I think the last time was in Zurich in 2008. She was still in the top-10 at the time. But now I’m moving a lot better, so when she hits the ball hard I can hit it back with interest. I try to allow her not to get so many free, easy points by hitting the ball hard. Making her hit the extra ball all the time helped me out today."

    Ana said: "I think the match was a lot closer than the score indicated. There were a lot of chances for both players. [Marion] was hitting faster than I thought she would. It was very hard for me to read her serve. Later on in the match, I started to feel more comfortable but I always felt like I was just a touch too late. I created chances for myself. Overall I can take a lot of quality things from this match and must continue to move forward."

    "My opponent in the first round didn’t serve that big and I was just a step too slow coming forward to try and hit the ball. But today she had big and solid first serves, so I took my chances when I could. I thought I did a better job of returning today."

She beat me earlier this year, but this time I decided to be a little more aggressive. Today I just tried to play with some discipline and I’m happy that I was able to win...

    Maria was hampered by knee trouble last year. Maria said: "This year has been so much better for me than last season. I have won a lot of tough matches and have beaten some really good players as well. That has given me so much confidence and I am starting to get better with my fitness. Everything is fine."

    Victoria said: “I think I played very well today. It was a little tough at the beginning with a couple of service breaks but I felt strong the whole match. For me it’s important to play every point the same, no matter what the score is. Whether I am up or down 40-love, that is always a key for me.”

    Melanie said: “Every single game, I had a game point almost. I don’t think [Victoria] overpowered me, or anything like that, since every game was really close and I had a game point in almost all of them. I thought I played a pretty good match. I served really well during the first set, but then toward the end I started to get a little tight because she started putting a lot of pressure on my second serve.”

    Samantha said: "It was a tough match from the first game right up to the end. I thought I started to return quite well toward the end of the first set. I wasn’t making too many in the beginning. I think I was still a little flat in the second set and let [Yanina] get back in it, going up a break in the first game. Throughout that second set, I wasn’t quite tough enough. Down 2-0 in the third, I knew it was time to pick it up and I was able to do that...
    “You have to not allow her to hit her best shots. I started getting the ball to her forehand a little bit more, maybe play through the middle a bit. Basically, not give her the angle that she wanted to get into my backhand corner."

    Maria said: "I just wasn’t swinging through well today; sometimes my arm just doesn’t want to swing. I didn’t want to take too much off the serve, because that was not going to get me anywhere... I was trying to find the right balance to win the match.”     “When things are not going that well, you just try to keep doing the right thing and ultimately you will get your chances. I got them and picked them up."

    Elena said: "I feel like I could have played much better, and there were some chances in the first and second set. I think my serve was not good enough today. She was playing very well today and had a good first serve, but it was a pretty flat game..."
    "This is what I was hoping for- to have a few tough matches here. Feel the competition out, feel the game and hopefully that will help me in the next month."

    About playing Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinals, Maria said: "[Agnieszka] is a great retriever and a challenging player because she is very tricky. She has a lot of different tricks in her bag. She can play really aggressive or mix it up and throw a change of pace. I will really have to be on top of my game."

I felt much more comfortable in the second set, knowing that I was one set ahead. When I was up 3-0 in the second set, I knew I was in a good spot. But you still have to be very focused up until the last point."

    Victoria said: "This was a very tough match today. [Marion] started the match really well, hitting hard and making so many winners. I was just trying to find my game; be more aggressive and continue to put pressure on her.
    "It was important to change her rhythm because she was really solid from the baseline. Also, it was important to make her move and hit some extra shots while applying pressure."

    Marion said: "I was in position to win the match. I kind of have mixed feelings because I really thought I would be able to come up with the win. I had a bit of bad luck at the end of the second set and just was not able to finish it.
    "On the other hand, I thought it was a great match... [Victoria] just was a little better than me."

    Victoria said: "It was a very good match today. I was very good on my returns and solid from the baseline. I kept holding my serve and played very smart. The key for me was returning her serve and try to put pressure on [Samantha] with that, because the serve is one of her biggest weapons...

    "Every player goes through some hard times or injuries. I got a little bit unlucky in Marbella [Spain, in April]. I slipped and turned my hamstring. But it’s part of the game. I was just trying to get healthy, which was tough because there were so many tournaments in a row and I had to play a lot of them. I finally got healthy and went back on the court after a lot of hard work and now it is paying off."

    Victoria now leads Smanatha 4-0 in career matches. All four of their meetings have been on hardcourts.

    Samantha said: "I thought [Victoria] played quite well today and punished me when I didn’t hit a good serve in the court, that’s for sure. It wasn’t my best day and she played quite well, but I still felt like I had quite a few chances to always get myself back in it. I didn’t come up with the goods when I needed to."

In the first set, I was making so many errors, and it’s not like [Agnieszka] was making me run or hitting winners. I was making three unforced errors a game, which is quite a lot. I needed to cut down on those, which I did. Little by little, I played really solid over the next two sets."
