Osaka:

#10 Marion Bartoli

    On Sunday in Linz, in the final of the Generali Ladies, this year's champion at Wimbledon and Madrid, 21 year old top seeded #5 (career high: #5) Petra Kvitova from Fulnek, Czech Republic, defeated a 2009 French Open semifinalist, 22 year old 7th seeded #22 (career high: #14) Dominika Cibulkova from Bratislava, Slovakia, 6-4, 6-1 (Petra is shown holding the tranparent trophy after the match).

    Petra's prize is $37,000; Dominika's is $19,000.

    Petra (2 aces, 1 double fault), who put 67% of her 1st serves in the box and won 55% of her 1st serve points (and 68% of her 2nd serve points), scored on 6 of the 16 break points she reached against Dominika while totaling 74 points in the match.

    Domi (1 ace, 4 DFs), who put 46% of her 1st serves in and won 59% of her 1st serve points (and 35% of her 2nd serve points),, scored on 2 of the 4 break points she reached against Petra while totaling 57 points in the match.

    Petra said: "I was fighting for every point this week... The first set with Dominika was very close. I know how well she plays and I knew I had to play well to beat her. I played very well on the big points." WTA story

    Petra now leads Dominika 4-0 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year, on red clay in the quarterfinals at Madrid, when Petra defeated Domi 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

    2011 Wimbledon, Madrid, Brisbane & Paris Indoor champ Petra is now 6-2 in WTA singles finals. Petra has a 53-13 singles match record in 2011.

    Dominika is now 0-3 in WTA singles finals. Both of her previous finals were in 2008, at Amelia Island and Montrea. Domi has a 37-21 singles match record this season.

    In Osaka, Japan, on Sunday, in the final of the HP Japan Open, this year's champion at Eastbourne, 26 year old 2nd seeded #10 (career high: #9) Marion Bartoli of France (residence: Geneva, SUI), defeated the 2009 Osaka champ (and this year's US Open champion), 27 year old top seeded #7 (career high: #4) Samantha Stosur from Gold Coast, Australia, 6-3, 6-1 (Marion is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Marion's prize is $37,000; Samantha's is $19,000. If Marion can also win next week's Moscow title, she might secure the final position in the year ending WTA Championships in Istanbul. Otherwise, the place will go to Agnieszka Radwanska, and Marion will be an alternate.

    Marion (2 aces, 4 DFs), who put 70% of her 1st serves in and won 87% of her 1st serve points (and 54% of her 2nd serve points), scored on 4 of the 14 break points she reached against Samantha while totaling 63 points in the match.
    Samantha (0 aces, 2 DFs), who made 69% of her 1st serves good and won 59% of those points (but only 33% of her 2nd serve points), failed to converted either of the 2 break points she reached against Marion, while scoring 40 points in the match.

    Marion said: "I'm very happy with the way I played this week. It has been a good season; I felt my level dropped in August, especially at the US Open, but now I'm back playing well again. Obviously to win a title is great. Now I have two titles this year, so I'm really happy.

    "I love to play in Japan. I love this country. Everyone is so friendly." WTA story

    Marion now leads Samantha 3-2 in career matches.

    2007 Wimbledon finalist Marion is now 7-8 in WTA singles finals. This year she also won at Eastbourne, reached the Indian Wells final, and the semis at Roland Garros. Marion has a 56-24 singles match record in 2011.

    2011 US Open champion (and 2010 French Open finalist) Samantha is now 3-10 in WTA singles finals. In 2007 Samantha was forced offcourt by viral meningitis and Lyme disease after a tick bite, but she recovered in 2008 and won titles at Osaka in 2009, and at Charleston last year. Sam has an 43-21 singles match record this season.

*n75 Alberta Brianti ITA d n17 s5 Sabine Lisicki GER 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 Wed

    Alberta said: "It wasn't a great match today—we both made a lot of mistakes—but the most important thing was staying focused from beginning to end. Playing a top player like Sabine is never easy. Every point and every game was tough. So I'm very happy I concentrated well today and won the match."

    Sabine suffered from stomach illness last week in Beijing. Sabine said: "I got very, very sick in China and was in the hospital. I'm still recovering from that. I really wanted to play here, especially with it being a German-speaking country. But after a week in bed it's hard to have a good rhythm. I wanted it really badly, but my body just couldn't handle it."

After I made the final there I had some problems with my shoulder, but in the end I'm very happy about this year. I hope I can keep this up here in Linz."

    Jelena said: "[Anne] played very well. She was solid off the ground and didn't give me many chances. It took me a while to find my rhythm and feel comfortable on the court, but I took control in the second set and played better and better. I'm very glad to get through this match, it really was a tough one." WTA story

    Flavia said: "I felt something wrong in my leg during the first set, but it wasn't that much pain so I kept going—I got my leg taped. I think Vesnina started to think too much and made a few mistakes, and I was able to finish the match, but afterwards I realized it's too much, and I'd have to win four more matches, as well as doubles... I prefer to just recover and try to play doubles." Flavia Pennetta Linz Blog: Wednesday
