    On Sunday in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in the final of the Dubai Duty Free Open, the 2010 champion at Montréal and Beijing, 20-year-old top seeded #1 (on the drawsheet, #2 this week) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated the 2004 US Open and 2009 French Open champion, 25-year-old 16th seeded #23 (career-high: #2) Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-1, 6-3 (Caroline is shown with the rather unique Dubai hardware after the match).

    Carolines's prize is $360,000; Svetlana's is $180,000.

    Caroline scored on seven of the ten break points she reached against Svetlana; Sveta converted only three of seven break points against Caro.

    Caroline said: "I definitely went for my shots. It’s paying off now. I’m definitely playing better than I have been before... I felt really good out there today. I felt like I was hitting the ball well, clean, and I could really stay aggressive today. I knew I had to because if Svetlana is allowed to stay and dictate, she’s just too strong." AP story

    Svetlana said: "I just didn’t play well. I did too many unforced errors. [Caroline] played a basic game and didn’t have to do much... Because she defends well I force too much. It’s very frustrating because I don’t play my good game. If I would play my good game and I lose, OK.

    "It’s like she played better than me. She does well. She plays a stable game and she wins. But I cannot tell you that she overpowered me or she overran me."

    Caroline now leads Svetlana 4-2 in career matches, and Caroline has won the last three times that they played. Their previous meeting was a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the semifinals last year at Montreal, when Caroline defeated Svetlana 6-2, 6-3.

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 13-8 in WTA singles finals; she won last year at Beijing, Tokyo, New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach. Caroline has a 11-2 singles match record this season, with over half of her wins coming in the past week.
    Barcelona-trained 2004 US Open and 2009 French Open champion Svetlana is now 13-19 in WTA singles finals; she won last year at San Diego. Svetlana's 2011 singles match record is 12-5.

    Caroline earned enough ranking points this week to return to the #1 position in Monday's WTA rankings, and to hold the top spot until at least March 20. Caroline was #2 in the Feb 14 WTA rankings, after being displaced by Kim Clijsters at #1 (the previous week's ranks are listed on this page to match the drawsheet, in this case Feb 7). Svetlana will also move back up in Monday's rankings, to #11.

    In the Memphis final on Saturday evening, 22 year old unseeded #101 (career high: #40) Magdalena Rybarikova from Bratislava, Slovakia, defeated 20 year old 6th seeded #84 Rebecca Marino from Vancouver, Canada, 6-2, retired when Rebecca could not continue due to a left abdominal injury (Magdalena is shown with the glassware after the match).

    Magda's prize is $37,000; Rebecca's is $19,000.

    Magdalena said: "I'm very sorry for Rebecca. I didn't know she was injured, but I could tell when she was playing something wasn't right. But still, congratulations to her on a great week...
    "It has been a while since I last won a title. Now, I'm a bit back. I didn't play well in 2010... But at the beginning of this year I said I wanted to be Top 50 again. My game still isn't great—I need to start being more aggressive—but this week was great for my confidence." WTA story

    Rebecca said: "[The injury] first happened in the semifinals against Rodina. As I kept playing today it got worse and worse. I'm upset I had to retire in the finals but I didn't want to make the injury worse. If this injury gets worse, it's an injury that would take a long time to recover from... Magdalena played great the whole week though. She deserves to win."

    Magdalena and Rebecca had never before met on the field of combat.
    2009 Birmingham champion Magdalena was playing in her 2nd WTA singles final. Magda now has a 9-3 singles match record this season.
    Rebecca was playing in her first WTA singles final; she has won 4 ITF singles titles and 2 ITF doubles titles. Rebecca now has a 11-6 singles match record for the year.

    In the Bogota final on Sunday, the 2006 tourney champ, 29 year old 7th seeded #77 (career high: #40) Lourdes Dominguez Lino from Barcelona, Spain, defeated 25-year-old #99 (career high: #59) Mathilde Johansson from Boulogne Billancourt, France (birthplace: Goteborg, Sweden), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 (Lourdes is shown with the hardware after the match).

    Lourdes prize is $37,000; Mathilde's is $19,000.

    Lourdes now leads Mathilde 3-0 in career matches; all of their meetings have been on red clay.
    Lourdes is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals; she reached the Bogota final in 2005, won in Bogota in 2006, and reached the Budapest final in 2008. Lourdes has a 6-4 singles match record in 2011.
    Mathilde was playing in her first WTA singles final; she has won 11 ITF singles titles and 1 ITF doubles title. Mathilde also has a 6-4 singles match record for this year.

    2010 Dubai semifinalist Shahar said: "Obviously I played well here last year, so when you go back to a tournament you played well at, you want to repeat it. I don't know if I'm going to go that deep. Maybe I'm going to go deeper, which I wish I would."

    Caroline said: "In the 1st set... [Anna] was making a lot of mistakes... [In the 2nd set] she started to go for it... Suddenly, I just see her collapse on the court. I didn't know what happened. It was a shock. It was scary. To see someone collapse on other side, it's not a nice sight. I just want to make sure she was OK." AP story."

    Vera said: "It definitely wasn't my day today. Probably one of the worst matches in a while from my part. Alisa's a tough opponent, so if you're not at a high level it's difficult to win. I have to analyze this so I can do better next week."

    Francesca had defeated Svetlana 6-4, 1-6, 16-14, in a 4 hour, 44 minute match in the 4th round of this year's Australian Open.

    Svetlana said: "Even after losing the first set 6-1, I knew this court is a fast one and that's better for me. I knew if I played a little better I could turn things around, and I did it. It's good, because I still have our last match in my heart. I still have this pain, because I fought so hard and I had so many chances and it was a Grand Slam. But it happens, I guess. I won this time."

    Francesca said: "It was another great battle but I didn't think about the match in Australia—to be honest, Australia was a higher level from both of us. This one was very close and there is always a lot of drama, but I didn't find a reason to compare it to Australia. All around, I felt she was stronger this time."

    Samantha said: "Patty is tricky. She's got the capability of hitting some unbelievable shots, then she'll go through a game and hit a couple in the back fence and one in the bottom of the net. You have to be on your game and keep a steady level the whole way, and kind of wait for her to go up and down, and obviously when you get the opportunities, go for it."

    Caroline is #2 in the Feb 14 WTA rankings, after being displaced by Kim Clijsters at #1 (the previous week's ranks are listed on this page to match the drawsheet, in this case Feb 7). The win over Shahar guaranteed that Caroline will return to the #1 position in Monday's WTA rankings.

    Caroline said: "Of course, it's nice to be back to #1. It's a good feeling. I gave Kim one week. Hopefully, now I will have it for a few more weeks...

    "I'm playing good tennis. I feel when I'm playing on a high level, I'm tough to beat. So, I'm really pleased about the way I'm playing at the moment." AP story

    Shahar reached the semifinals last year in Dubai, after defeating Caroline in the 3rd round.

    Caroline will play Jelena Jankovic in the Dubai semifinals on Saturday. Jelena leads Caroline 4-0 in career matches. Their most recent meeting was a Plexipave hardcourt in the final last year at Indian Wells, when Jelena defeated Caroline 6-2, 6-4.

    At Facebook & Twitter, Jelena said: "SO happy to win my match today! I kept on fighting, even though I was down in the 3rd set. Thank you for all your support, very nice to see so many Serbian fans in the stands :)! Just finished with the press, and now going to get something to eat."

Alexandra about to swat a backhand

    It was Alexandra's first win over a Top 60 player since 2003. Alexandra said: "Technically in tennis years, I'm 24. Unfortunately my shoulder stopped me from getting into the Top 10 when I was 22, 23. I didn't like my 20s. I'm happy to be 30...
    "I know I could come back, it just took a lot of years. Technology is better, people are healthier and you can really play as long as you want."

    Melanie said: "I'm really happy to be back in Memphis and about the match. I'm trying to be more aggressive. At the beginning I wasn't missing by too much so I knew it could turn around. But I'm trying to take it one match at a time too."
