    On Saturday in Tokyo, Japan, in the final of the Pan Pacific Open, this year's champion in New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach, 20-year-old top-seeded #2 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated the 2006 tourney champion (and this year's champ at the Paris Indoor and at Sydney), 28-year-old 7th-seeded #10 (career-high: #3) Elena Dementieva of Russia (residence: like Caroline, income tax-free Monte Carlo), 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 (Elena is shown during the match; Caroline with the fine ceramicware later).

    Caroline's prize is $350,000, Elena's is $175,000. Caroline also earned enough ranking points so that if she reaches the quarterfinals next week in Beijing, she will become the #1 player in the world for the first time in her career.

    Caroline said: "Elena started really strong. I didn't get enough depth on my groundstrokes, but in the beginning of the second set I pressed a little harder. I started to feel the match was turning around a little bit, but I still had to keep my focus in the third set, and I'm just happy I won the last point." WTA story

    Elena said: "I feel I played very well in the first set, and unfortunately I missed some opportunities in the beginning of the second set and lost a bit of momentum. [Caroline] was fighting and playing solid from the baseline, and I'm disappointed the way I finished the match, but overall it was a good fight."

    Caro now leads Elena 4-3 in career matches. Caroline also won the last time they played, their only previous match this year, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the semifinals at New Haven, 1-6, 6-3, 7-6(5).

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 11-7 in WTA singles finals; she won at New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach this year, and reached the Indian Wells final. Caroline has a 54-15 singles match record this season.

    2008 Olympic gold medalist Elena is now 16-15 in WTA singles finals; she won at the Paris Indoor and Sydney this year, and reached the final in Kuala Lumpur. Elena has a 38-15 singles match record in 2010.

The Toray Pan Pacific Open was previously held in February, indoors at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. However, rescheduling of the Fed Cup 1st round resulted in moving the tourney to September, and the venue was changed to the Ariake Tennis Forest Park, the same place where the AIG Japan Open was held for years. The Japan Open has now been moved to Osaka.

Toray Pan Pacific Open venue address: Ariake Tennis Forest Park, 2-2-22 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo

Although this is an outdoor event, the Center Court stadium has a retractable roof, which is closed in foul weather.

    Tokyo resident and all-time Japanese #1 Kimiko (WTA career high ranking: #4), who retired from the WTA Tour for 12 years, then returned to play in 2008, will turn 40 on Wednesday.

    Kimiko said: "To play against a former world #1 and defending champion, I knew I had to play to the best of my ability...
    "I just came back from Korea yesterday and was really tired. My body felt a little better today but this surface was a lot faster that the one in Korea." AP story

    Maria was up a break at 3-2 in the 2nd set, but double faulted twice when leading 40-love to let Kimiko back into the match. Maria said: "Momentum is so big in tennis. If you give your opponent a chance they can get confident and take the momentum away... [Kimiko] is incredibly fit."

    It was Kimiko's 40th birthday. Kimiko played her first professional tennis in 1988, and won 7 WTA singles titles, including the 1995 Pan Pacific Open, before retiring in 1996. Kimiko returned to WTA play in 2008, and won the Seoul title last year. Despite almost 12 years off, today's win was her 322nd match victory in pro singles.

    Kimiko hsd defeated the 2009 Tokyo champion, former #1 Maria Sharapova in the 1st round on Monday. Kimiko said: "I'm very happy, especially because it's my 40th birthday. There were many Japanese fans cheering for me; it was a special occasion. Yesterday was my last day in my 30s, so beating Sharapova was a very big win for me. Now I'm not going to put any pressure on myself for my 40s." WTA story

    Caroline said: "It feels really good to qualify for the WTA Championships in Doha. I'm really happy I'm in the Top 8 and also I've qualified first, which is a special feeling. At the beginning of the year I was just hoping to qualify; it's great to reach one of my goals for this year." WTA story

    Caroline had a 5-0 lead in the 3rd set—then Victoria won the next four games. Caroline said: "I know she's a fighter and never gives up. At 5-0 she didn't have anything to lose so she just started going for her shots, and they were going in for her. At 5-4 I stepped it up a little bit, got some big first serves in and was able to close it out. We were both fighting and got better as it went on." WTA story

    Caro now leads Vika 4-2 in career matches. Their previous meeting was on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the round robin of last year's WTA Championships in Doha, Qatar, when Caroline defeated Victoria 1-6, 6-4, 7-5.

    Elena said: "It was a great fight for both of us. Francesca and I have played lots of times and have always had difficult matches. I had a tough time closing out the match—I had a few match points on her serve but she took big risks and played unbelievable points so I had no chance to finish it at 5-3. At 5-5 I played a very good game and thankfully was able to break her." WTA story

    Elena now leads Francesca 7-5 in career matches. Their previous meeting was on red clay in the semifinals of this year's French Open, where Francesca defeated Elena 7-6(3), retired, when Elena could not continue due to a leg injury. Elena won their last three meetings prior to Roland Garros, including a match earlier this year, on a Plexipave hardcourt in the 1st round in Sydney, which Elena won 6-2, 7-5.
