    On Sunday in Stuttgart, in the final of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, the 2010 champ at Bad Gastein, Austria, 22-year-old unseeded #34 (career-high: #34) Julia Goerges from Bad Oldesloe, Germany, finished the best week of her career with her biggest victory, defeating this year's champion at Dubai, Indian Wells and Charleston, 20-year-old top seeded #1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 7-6(3), 6-3 (Julia is shown after match point, and with the Porsche roadware after the match).

    Julia's prize is $111,000 plus a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet valued at $112,900; Caroline's prize is $60,700.

    There was only one break of serve in the 1 hour, 39 minute match, but it was all Julia needed to win. Julia fired 2 aces with no double faults, scored on 1 of 2 break points against Caroline, and totaled 78 points. Caroline had no aces, with 1 DF, was unable to score on any of her 5 break points against Julia, and won 65 points in the match. Julia won 72% of her 1st serve points, and 65% of her 2nd serve points (Caroline: 67% & 33%).

    Julia said: "I had goose pimples on match point. It was an unbelievable feeling playing the final with so many people watching. Everything was going so well but you can never be sure against Caroline. She never gives up and has turned lots of matches around when nobody expected her to. She’s only beaten when the last point is over." tourney story

    Caroline said: "I played well, but Julia was simply better. I’d like to congratulate her on her win. At the start of both sets I had a few break chances but I couldn’t take them. But I had a good tournament. Of course I’d love to have won the Porsche. I’ll just have to try again next year."

    Julia and Caroline had met twice before. In January of last year, on a Plexipave hardcourt in the 2nd round of the Australian Open, Caroline handily defeated Julia 6-3, 6-1.

    But in August, on an indoor hardcourt in the quarterfinals of Caroline's home tourney in Copenhagen, the score was much closer, Caro defeating Julia 3-6, 6-0, 7-6(3). After that match, Caroline said: "Julia played really well tonight; I was close to losing. I pulled it through, and that's great. There was a great atmosphere, a lot of people. It's really great to play in front of the home crowd." WTA story

    Julia is now 2-1 in WTA singles finals; she won last year at Bad Gastein, but lost at Luxembourg. Julia has a 18-9 singles match record this season. The win on Sunday raised Julia to a career high #27 in Monday's WTA singles rankings.

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 15-10 in WTA singles finals; she won in February at Dubai, in March at Indian Wells, in April at Charleston, and last year at Beijing, Tokyo, New Haven, Montreal, Copenhagen, and Ponte Vedra Beach. Caroline has a 29-5 singles match record this season.

After her semifinal on Saturday, Julia said: "I’ve walked past the [tourney prize] car so often this week but I haven’t looked at it closely. If somebody had told me at the start of the week that I would be in the final here, there’s no way I would have believed them... I haven't driven a car for three months now, maybe if I win, I should try to drive again with a normal car first." AFP story

    In Fès, Morocco on Sunday, in the final of the Grand Prix SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem, 31-year-old #96 Alberta Brianti from Fontanellato, Italy, won her first WTA singles title by defeating last year's Fès finalist, 19-year-old 7th seeded #66 (career high: #61) Simona Halep from Constantza, Romania, 6-4, 6-3.

    Alberta's prize is $37,000; Simona's prize is $19,000. Alberta and Simona had met only once before, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 1st round of qualifying in Montreal last year, when Simona defeated Alberta 6-1, 6-1.

    Alberta said: "It was a very tough match. Simona is a talented player. We had to stop for the rain but I was able to keep concentrating and win. I was playing good tennis all week, including today. I'm very happy to win my first title." WTA story

    Alberta is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals; she has won 9 ITF singles titles, 1 WTA doubles title, and 11 ITF doubles titles. Alberta has a 14-11 singles match record this season.

    Simona is now 0-2 in WTA singles finals; she has won 6 ITF singles titles and 4 ITF doubles titles. Simona has a 12-9 singles match record this season.

Tried to be ready for match but with playing it didn't get any better and kept hurting me. Its very sad to retire specially when I was winning and I love this place and tournament. Its one of the best on the Tour. But it was a smart decision,because all clay season is ahead. So now I'm getting treatment and hopefully will be back in Madrid!

    “When I was the world number 22, I often felt the pressure of being a seeded player that was expected to get through at least two rounds at the bigger tournaments. Now after my injury and being 155, the pressure has obviously disappeared. But I’m playing better than my rank-ing would suggest, otherwise I certainly wouldn’t have won the two matches I have here in Stuttgart." tourney story

    About losing the 1st set, Andrea said: "I just happen to have a diesel engine and I always start off very slowly. Perhaps I should play a set with my coach before the first set. I warm up intensively before the match and go on court sweating—but I still need some time to get going." tourney story

    Andrea will play #1 Caroline Wozniacki in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix quarterfinals on Thursday. They have met only once before, last month on a Laykold hardcourt in the 4th round in Miami, when Andrea won the biggest victory of her career, defeating Caroline 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.

    It was the biggest win (by rank) of Kristina's career. Kristina said: "I concentrated on playing with a lot of variety. It helped me stop Marion from pinning me to the baseline. Mats Wilander said here that, with the exception of Francesca Schiavone, there are virtually only boom-boom players on the circuit. I had it in the back of my mind and tried to mix up my shots. I also didn’t look at Marion as she is always fidgeting so that you can lose your concentration." tourney story

    Andrea took a 4-1 lead at the start of the match, but Caroline then won the next 10 consecutive games.

    Caroline said: "It was tough for me to come back in the first set. I am sorry I beat the home favorite... I feel very good at the moment, my volleys were working really well, which they haven't always done, and I played some good shots." AFP story

    Caroline and Andrea had met only once before, last month on a Laykold hardcourt in the 4th round in Miami, when Andrea won the biggest victory of her career, defeating Caroline 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.

    Andrea said: "Against Caroline you have to be able to run for three hours. She kept hitting the ball out wide, and played really well after I went 4-1 up. I’ve got the game to beat her and I proved it in Miami. But I was simply too exhausted to resist. But when I’m full of energy then I’ll do well. I’ve had a good year up to now, but I can get even better." tourney story

I've won two three-setters in a row now, I haven't done that for many months. It's all coming together...
    "Anytime you can go this far in a tournament you've got to be pleased with the result. At the end of the day I'm focusing on playing good tennis, win or lose. I hope I can do the same thing on Saturday." WTA story

It’s definitely a good feeling to have this kind of success in front of such a fantastic crowd in your home country." tourney story

    Sabine said: "I lacked strength at the end. I’ve been ill over the past few days, which you can all hear in my voice... After my injury, I can feel my confidence is coming back slowly. I’ve made a giant leap forward here in Stuttgart." tourney story

    In the Stuttgart semifinals on Saturday, Julia will play 2010 Stuttgart finalist Samantha Stosur. They have met only once before, last year on a hardcourt in the 1st round in Tokyo, when Julia defeated Sam 7-5, 6-3.

    Julia said: "[Samantha] a very strong player, and stood in the finals of the French Open and here in Stuttgart last year. She can be a really awkward player to play against on clay so I’ll definitely be the outsider. But I’ve got so far that the match against Stosur is a bonus for me."

    Julia said: "I’m just so happy. It was one of the best matches of my career... Amazing—I played a very good match. Samantha too. She played at the same level as at last year’s French Open. tourney story

    Samantha said: "I was playing no worse than I did last year, but Julia was a bit more aggressive and it made all the difference."

    Julia and Samantha had met only once before, last year on a hardcourt in the 1st round in Tokyo, when Julia defeated Sam 7-5, 6-3. Samantha was then ranked #7, and that was Julia's previous best win by player's ranking.
