    On Saturday in Dubai, in the final of the Dubai Tennis Championships, the 2011 champion at Beijing, Tokyo, and San Diego (Carlsbad), 22 year old 5th seeded #6 (career high: #6) Agnieszka Radwanska from Krakow, Poland, defeated last year's champ at Stuttgart, 23 year old #21 (career high: #16) Julia Goerges from Bad Oldesloe, Germany, 7-5, 6-4 (Agnieszka is shown befriending the hardware after the match).

    Agnieszka's prize is $446,778; Julia's prize is $242,815.

    Agnieszka said: "I was pretty close to losing in the first round, so I'm extremely happy right now. Tonight I think I was just better in a couple points, to be honest. In the important moments I was more consistent. The conditions were a little bit difficult during the match, but I stayed calm until the end.
    "Julia's forehand is a very big weapon. It's just going so fast, and sometimes I'd be moving to it right away and the ball was already behind me." WTA story

    Julia said: "It wasn't enough today but it was still the right direction for my game... [Agnieszka] doesn't give you anything... And when she does a few [mistakes], it's at 15-all or 15-0, not in the important moments."

    Aga and Julie had met only once before, on a Plexicushion hardcourt earlier this year in the 4th round of the Australian Open, when Agnieszka defeated Julia 6-1, 6-1.

    Agnieszka is now 8-2 in WTA singles finals, and she won all three finals she reached last year. This was her first final of 2012. Aga now has a 15-3 singles match record this season.

    Julia is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals; she won at Stuttgart and Bad Gastein last year, and reached the Luxembourg final in 2010. Julie has a 11-7 singles match record in 2012.

    In Memphis on Saturday evening, in the final of the Cellular South Cup, the 2006 tourney champion, 28 year old #74 (career high: #29) Sofia Arvidsson from Halmstad, Sweden, won again, defeating 23 year old 4th seeded #58 (career high: #49) Marina Erakovic from Auckland, New Zealand, 6-3, 6-4 (Sofia is shown holding the glassware after the match).

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

    Marina and Sofia had met only once before, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt last year in the 1st round at Stanford, when Marina defeated Sofia 6-2, 6-1.

    Sofia said: "Marina beat me really easily the last time we played, so I expected a really tough match. After the first two games I really came into it. I think my serve was working really well, and my backhand was really good, especially down the line. I just tried to be relaxed but aggressive too." WTA story

    Marina said: "Sofia went out swinging. She made it difficult for me. Her serve was a key factor today. Her serve is very tricky, in the sense she moves it around well and varies it with slice and spin. I felt I couldn't attack it. But I played some good matches here—I had some tough battles and I won them. Basically it was a good week. I'm playing good tennis."

    Sofia is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals. She won at Memphis in 2006, and reached the final there last year and at Quebec City in 2005. Sofia has a 9-3 singles match record this season.

    Marina was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has won 12 ITF singles titles, 5 WTA doubles titles, and 6 ITF doubles titles. Marina has a 7-6 singles match record this year.

    On Sunday in Mexico, in the final of the Abierto Monterrey, 18 year old #133 (career high: #107) Timea Babos from Sopron, Hungary, won her first WTA title by defeating 21 year old #111 (career high: #96) Alexandra Cadantu from Bucharest, Romania, 6-4, 6-4 (Timea is also displayed in postmatch trophy mode).

    Timea's prize is $37,000; Alexandra's prize is $19,000.

    Timea said: "I was actually surprised because it was my first final and I wasn't nervous or tight. I just tried to play my tennis and stay aggressive. I was also really trying to keep my serve all the time, and [Alexandra] didn't have a break point, which was really positive for me. Then as soon as I had a chance on her serve I played a good point or hit a winner when I really needed it." WTA story

    Timea and Alexandra had met only once before, on red clay last year in the semifinals of an ITF tourney at Kristinehamn, Sweden, when Alexandra defeated Timea 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.

    Timea was playing in her first WTA final. She has won 9 ITF singles titles and 9 ITF doubles titles. Timea has a 13-3 singles match record this season.

    Alexandra was also playing in her first WTA final. She has won 8 ITF singles titles and 6 ITF doubles titles. Alexandra has a 6-5 singles match record in 2012.

    Ana said: "Francesca stepped up and really hung in there, and gave me a tough match in the second set. It's such a small draw, so you can't really get any easy matches. And Francesca and I always have long and tough matches.
    "I was impressed the way I started the match and played that first set, because I knew it was probably not going to last in the second set."

    Flavia said: "The wind made it hard to control the ball, and it was not easy because [Anabel is] one of my best friends. It's not easy to play against your friend on the court. But tennis is like this—you have to get on the court and try to play your best tennis all the time. It wasn't easy, but I'm happy I won."

n25 Maria Kirilenko RUS d n31 Monica Niculescu ROU 6-3, 6-0 Mon

    Maria said: "Today there were some very close games I lost at the start, but I was doing everything right and coming to the net. [Monica] was better in those games but I continued to play the same way, then it was better.
    "I liked my forehand a lot today. I was playing it well from each position on the court, I think. I was enjoying that shot today, and having a lot of fun out there."

n28 Lucie Safarova CZE d n60 q Petra Martic CRO 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 Tue

    Lucie said: "It was very tough conditions today with the wind, but I just tried to stick with my tactics and not get upset about it.
    "Both Doha and Dubai are very well-organized and very luxurious tournaments, and for me and the players it's always nice to come here. These events are at a very high level."

    2011 Dubai champ Caroline said: "It's a great feeling to be back. I see my picture together with all the other champions and lifting the trophy, it's a great feeling. I wish it could be like this every week. It's nice to see I have some fans here—they were definitely yelling pretty loud out there tonight."

n5 s4 Samantha Stosur AUS d n28 Lucie Safarova CZE 6-1, 6(5)-7, 6-1

   
Lucie and Samantha driving backhands

    Samantha said: "Lucie has got a big game and can be a very dangerous player. When she puts it all together it's hard to play against.
    "I thought I was serving really well tonight. That second set I lost it, but I don't think I did that much wrong. I had a few opportunities to try and break late in the second set and wasn't able to take them, but then finally did early in the third."

    Jelena said: "I was down a break in the beginning, then I managed to lift up my game and I started playing a lot more aggressively. Especially I think I served a lot better than her today. I was holding my service games and I was waiting for the opportunities to break her. Overall I think I played pretty well.
    "Flavia is a great player and is playing well, and it wasn't easy to beat her."

n14 s9 Sabine Lisicki GER d n48 q Iveta Benesova CZE 6-3, 6-3
n20 Daniela Hantuchova SVK d n16 Shuai Peng CHN 7-5, 6-2

   
Shuai and Daniela driving backhands

    Daniela said: "[Shuai] has improved so much, especially over the last 12 months. She had a great year last year and she has worked really hard on her game—on the tennis side, on the fitness side. She is always going to be one of the toughest players to play against, but she's a great girl. We always practice together. It's nice to see her do so well."

n19 Ana Ivanovic SRB d n25 Maria Kirilenko RUS 6-2, 7-6(4)

   
Ana watching her serve fly, Maria following a forehand, and Ana driving one

    Ana said: "It was a little bit of a strange match, especially the second set. There were just so many breaks and return winners. It was hard to get the rhythm. There weren't too many long rallies then all of a sudden you would have one. I had to get down to business and try and work my way through it though. I thought I kept my composure well."

Ana following a forehand, Caroline watching her serve fly, and after match point

    Caroline said: "Ana really stepped it up in the second set, took the balls very early and just played really well, actually. She took her chances and had nothing to lose. I'm happy to have hung in there.
    "I think the first set wasn't the best tennis from either of us, but I came out on top, which was great. I already had that first set in my pocket, so it was easier to play afterwards. But she showed why she has been No.1 in the world and won a Grand Slam. It's because she can play tennis on this level. I knew it was going to come."

    Ana said: "I was consistent at times, but it wasn't good enough. I was lacking a bit more patience during some moments. I was going for too much too soon. And when I was going for it, I wasn't going for it at the right times. I'm disappointed at missing those opportunities. But it was a good week and I had some good matches."

*n13 s8 Jelena Jankovic SRB d n5 s4 Samantha Stosur AUS 6-4, 6-2

   
Samantha and Jelena driving forehand and backhand

    Jelena said: "The key was my return. [Samantha] has one of the best, if not the best, serves in the women's game, and it's never easy to return against her. So I was really focused on that and tried to make as many returns as possible, and then I would feel comfortable afterwards.
    "Usually she likes to serve and then dictate the point with her forehand. I didn't really allow her to do that today—I kind of broke her rhythm and was pretty much in control the whole time.

n6 s5 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n14 s9 Sabine Lisicki GER 6-2, 6-1

    About her semifinal opponent, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka said: "I saw a bit of [Jelena's] match before me, and she's playing really good tennis. It will be tough."

Julia driving a forehand, Caroline launching one on the run, Julie driving a backhand, and after match point

    It was Julia's third consecutive win over Caroline. Julia said: "It's never easy playing Caroline. She gets a lot of balls back and it's a lot of rallies. We played over two hours for two sets.
    "Some players, you can see if they really like your game, or they don't. On her I can see she doesn't really like my game. That's pretty important for me to see."

    Caroline said: "I didn't play my best game today. I made way too many unforced errors, and Julia took advantage of it. She didn't really allow me to get a rhythm. Every time I felt I was back in the game, I made some unforced errors at very important times, which of course is a bit disappointing—but can't do anything about it now."

n6 s5 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n13 s8 Jelena Jankovic SRB 6-2, 2-6, 6-0

   
Agnieszka driving a forehand, Jelena following one, and Aga's backhand drive

    Agnieszka said: "[Jelena] started to play much better in the second set. I was really in a lot of trouble. In the third set I was just focused on my game and fought until the end...     "The second game of the third set was the key in this match—I got more confident after that and she got a bit angry. Jelena plays great tennis here every year and has had great results at this tournament. So I knew I had to play much better than the other days."

*n101 Nina Bratchikova RUS d n24 s1 Roberta Vinci ITA 7-5, 7-5 Wed

    Nina said: "Every point was tough and every game was tough. I knew [Roberta's] game well coming in, but you still can't plan how the match is going to go, so I'm very happy I won.
    "I've been playing very well this year. My game has gotten better, I've had some big wins, and my ranking is rising. I hope I can start winning tournaments soon."

n35 s2 Sara Errani ITA d n115 Alize Cornet FRA 6-2, 6-3 Wed

    Sara said: "I've been playing well the whole week so far, and today I felt good too. We're at a higher altitude here and the ball flies sometimes. You just have to be patient with it and adapt to the conditions. It's also dangerous because it means your opponents can hit with more power sometimes. It can be tough to handle."
