    On Sunday in Quebec City, in the final of the Bell Challenge, 25 year old 6th seeded #71 (career high: #39) Barbora Zahlavova Strycova from Pilzen, Czech Republic, won her first WTA singles title by defeating 23 year old #90 (career high: #49) Marina Erakovic from Auckland, New Zealand. 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 (Barbora is shown getting acquainted with the hardware after the match).

    Barbora's prize is $37,000; Marina's prize is $19,000.

    Barbora struck 3 aces, with no double faults, and scored on 6 of the 8 break points she reached against Marina while totaling 88 points in the match.
    Marina also had 3 aces, with 1 DF, but converted only 2 of the 13 break points she reached against Barbora while scoring 69 points in the match.

    Barbora said: "After the 1st set I tried to change a little bit, and it worked; I played a pretty solid two sets... And I think at the end of the 3rd set [Marina] was very tired, because she had a tough match yesterday, and I kind of felt it, so I kept the ball in the court...
    "I was also going to the net in the 3rd set, I was putting a lot of pressure on her and she was making more mistakes. The 1st set she was playing very, very good."

    It was Barbora and Marina's first meeting in pro singles.

    Barbora is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals; she reached the Prague final last year. She has won 8 ITF singles titles and 8 ITF doubles titles. Barbora's 2011 singles match record is 27-26.

    Marina was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has won 12 ITF singles titles, 4 WTA doubles titles, and 8 ITF doubles titles. Marina's singles match record this year is 50-15.

    On Saturday in Uzebekistan, in the final of the Tashkent Open, this year's finalist in Baku, Azerbaijan, 20 year old top seeded #52 (career high: #51) Ksenia Pervak from Moscow, Russia, won her first WTA singles final by defeating 27 year old #123 (career high: #59) Eva Birnerova from Plzen, Czech Republic, 6-3, 6-1 (both ladies are shown with the hardware after the match).

    Ksenia's prize is $37,000; Eva's prize is $19,000.

    Ksenia said: "Both of us were nervous, but being the top seed was a little more pressure on me. This win is very special for me as it's my first win on the WTA circuit. It was a pleasure to play here and get big support from the crowd.
    "I'll take a lot of positives from here. I know how to fight off pressure better." WTA story

    Eva said: "I went into the match a little tired after playing some three set matches this week, but full credit to Ksenia for her win. I think Ksenia has improved. Her concentration is good and she's very consistent...
    "I was expecting nothing coming here, so this means a lot to me. I was injured and off the tour, and made a comeback from zero. This will give me a big boost and will help me end my year in the Top 100."

    Ksenia and Eva had never before met on the field of combat.

    Ksenia is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals; she lost to Vera Zvonareva in the Baku final earlier this year. She has won 7 ITF singles titles and 3 ITF doubles titles. Ksenia's 2011 singles match record is 38-22.

    Eva was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has won 8 ITF singles titles, 2 WTA doubles titles, and 9 ITF doubles titles. Eva's singles match record this year is 26-23.

Daniela following a forehand

    Daniela said: "I had my first match of the tournament today, against a talented young girl, Ajla Tomljanovic. I felt I did everything right in the first set. I lost serve in the beginning of the second set—after that she started so serve really well and go for her shots. I was down 5-2 in no time and lost the second set, but I'm glad about the way I kept fighting for it. I was playing much better in the third—even though I was down a break early in the third set, I felt confident I could still turn it around. I waited for my chances and took them when they came." player's blog by Daniela Hantuchova

    "As for the match... Melinda played very well in the first set, and I had to dig deep and fight hard to win. Dealing with my foot injury was not easy, but like I said, today it had a different meaning so I kept fighting as much as I could." player blog by Daniela Hantuchova

    Marina said: "In the third set I started to play better and better. It's a good match-up—I have a good forehand and she has a great backhand. Sometimes she comes up with impressive backhand winners, either down the line or crosscourt, but I was just trying to use my forehand and work the ball around when I could.
    "I was feeling my legs, but I think she was feeling hers too. This was my first win against Tamira. She's a really tough player."

    "It's funny, because I came here without thinking of making the final—I thought I'd win one or two rounds and be happy. I feel very relaxed here. My first matches went well and I'm happy how I've been playing."
