#1 Caroline Wozniacki
5' 10" 128lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday in Copenhagen, Denmark, in the final of the eBoks Danish Open, the 2010 Copenhagen champ (and this year's champion at Dubai, Indian Wells and Charleston), 20 year old top seeded #1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: also Monte Carlo, Monaco), won her home title for the 2nd straight year by defeating the 2006 champion at Gold Coast, 24 year old 4th seeded #37 (career high: #22) Lucie Safarova from Brno, Czech Republic, 6-1, 6-4 (photo shown). Caroline's prize is $37,000; Lucie's is $19,000.

    Caroline struck 12 winners (including 2 aces) with only 10 unforced errors (2 double faults) and converted 4 of the 6 break points she reached against Lucie and scoring 57 points in the match. Lucie hit 22 winners (5 aces), but with 25 errors (2 DFs) while reaching break point against Caroline only once (she did convert it) and scoring 36 points in the match.

    Caroline said: "It's a special feeling on my home court, but it wouldn't have been quite so special without the support." AP story

    Lucie said: "I'm disappointed, but it was a great week for me and I will be back next year. Congratulations to Caroline, she played really well today. It must be great for her to win at home—I can only imagine. I wish her all the best." WTA story

    Caro and Lucie had met only once before, last year on red clay indoors in the 2nd round in Stuttgart, when Lucie, always an occasional giant killer, defeated Caroline 6-4, 6-4.

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 17-10 in WTA singles finals; this year she also won in February at Dubai, in March at Indian Wells, in April at Charleston, and in May at Brussels. Caroline has a 45-8 singles match record this season.

    Lucie is now 4-6 in WTA singles finals; she won the tiny tourney (aub-Tier IV) at Forest Hills in 2008 and 2005, and at Gold Coast in 2006 and Estoril in 2005. Lucie's 2011 singles match record is 21-14.

    On Monday in Birmingham, England, in the rain-postponed final of the AEGON Classic, the 2009 Charleston champion, 21-year-old #121 (up to #100 this week; career high #22, her current rank depleted due to injury) Sabine Lisicki of Germany (residence: Bradenton, Florida, where she trains at the Bollettieri Academy), defeated this year's champ at Pattaya City (and the 2002 & '07 Indian Wells champion), 28-year-old 4th seeded #29 (career high: #5) Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-3, 6-2 (photo shown). Sabine's prize is $37,000; Daniela's is $19,000.

    Sabine fired 8 aces in the match, scored on 3 of the 9 break points she reached against Daniela, and totaled 61 points in the match. Daniela reached break point against Sabine only once, and failed to convert it, while scoring 39 points in the match.

    Sabine said: "Even though it was the final, I just wanted to take it as a normal match and to not get too nervous... to go out there and have fun—and it was very nice to see all the people coming out today...
    "I love the grass, and it’s just such a great feeling to be back on it after missing last year. After the injury it was so so tough to get back on the courts. I am so so happy that all the work in the last few months, year, has been paying off. It’s just such an amazing feeling." tourney story

    Daniela and Sabine had met only once before, in 2008 on an indoor hardcourt in the 2nd round in Luxembourg, when Dani defeated Sabine 6-0, 6-2.

    Sabine is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals; she won her first title at Charleston in 2009 and reached the final at Luxembourg the same year and at Tashkent in 2008. Sabine injured her left ankle badly at Indian Wells last year, and has only recently been showing signs of complete recovery. She has a 27-11 singles match record this year.

    2-time Indian Wells champ Daniela is now 4-8 in WTA singles finals; she won her most recent title in Pattaya City, Thailand, earlier this year. Daniela, who started the year with an achilles injury, has a 24-17 singles match record in 2011.

    Ana said: "It was a very tough match, [Mirjana] served well, so I'm very happy with the win. The second set there were a few breaks early on—it was a strange start—so I was really happy when I was able to hold.
    "I'm enjoying competing again, I feel good on the grass, it has good memories for me. I really like the courts here, even the practice courts are great."

    About playing Daniela Hantuchova in the semifinals, Ana said: "It will be a good test. [Daniela has] played extremely well the last few months, so she's the favourite."

    "I enjoy playing on grass, I'm happy enough. I enjoy Birmingham, it's great preparation for Wimbledon."

    About playing Ana Ivanovic in the semifinals, Daniela said: "I'm looking forward to the match, I have nothing to lose, there's no pressure on me, [Ana is] expected to win."

    Ana fired 16 aces in the match, but scored on only 2 of 20 break points she reached against Daniela. Daniela converted 5 of the 13 break points she reached against Ana.

    Daniela said: "I always kept fighting. I am really pleased with how I played in the third set. I felt like my confidence was growing through the match. I wanted to win so badly, the grass court season means so much to me." tourney story

    Ana said: "I still felt positive coming out for the third set. It was only in the last couple of games that I didn't have the intensity I had previously. My mind was wandering and things happen very fast on grass.
    "But it was the first time I have played four matches in a row for a long time, and that's something positive I can take into next week." WTA story

    Daniela still trails Ana 2-4 in career matches, but has won both times that they met on chlorophyll courts. Their only previous grasscourt encounter came in the quarterfinals at 's-Hertogenbosch in 2007, when Daniela defeated Ana, 6-3, 6-1.

    "[In the final,] I'm just going to go out there and have fun. I'll play my game, fight for every point and appreciate every minute out there. I've got nothing to lose. [Winning the title] would mean a lot to me, it would be amazing. We'll see." tourney story

    The 4-week chlorophyll court season begins this week at Birmingham, followed by Eastbourne and s'Hertengobosch next week, and then the Wimbledon fortnight.

    Birmingham is the tourney that may have the lowest total prize $ to # of players ratio of the WTA Tour. The 56 players in the main draw (and 24 more who lost in qualifying) are there to get some time in playing on grass to prepare for Wimbledon, more than for the $220,000 prize money.
    Next week at Eastbourne, the last week before Wimbledon, there will be about half as many players, and almost 3 times as much prize money.
