    On Friday at Yale University, in the semifinals of the New Haven Open, the champion less than two weeks ago at Montreal, 22 year old 2nd seeded #6 (career high: #2) Petra Kvitova from Fulnek, Czech Republic, won again, defeating the 2008 champion at Estoril, Barcelona, and Seoul, 25 year old 7th seeded #14 (career high: #14) Maria Kirilenko from Moscow, Russia, 7-6(9), 7-5 (Petra is shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Petra's prize is $107,000; Maria's prize is $57,000.

    Petra said: "In the tie-break I just played point by point. I wasn't thinking about the score. In the end it was pretty close and I'm really glad I won it.
    "After that, I was down physically, without energy. It seemed like I was walking, not running. I made a lot of mistakes and went 5-2 down. But then I tried not to think about my shots or tactics and started putting the ball into the court more.
    "Then it was 7-5. I was surprised."

    Maria said: "I was surprised I lost the tie-break. The last five or six tie-breaks I've won. I haven't lost one the last four or five months. But it was really close, and I already served for the set and just didn't make the right decisions, and it's okay.
    "I was 5-2 up in the second set and again [Petra] came back. Even though I lost I still feel positive. I played really well this week. I played a good match today. Unfortunately, I was unlucky in the final today." WTA story

    Petra and Maria are now tied at 3-3 in career matches. Their previous meeting was three weeks ago on a chlorophyll court in the quarterfinals of the London Olympic Games, when Maria defeated Petra 7-6(3) 6-3.

    2011 Wimbledon, WTA Championships, Madrid, Brisbane & Paris Indoor champ Petra, who clinched this year's US Open Series title (and bonus money) with her quarterfinal win on Thursday, is now 9-2 in WTA singles finals. Petra has a 41-12 singles match record this year.

    Roberta said: "I think we played a really good final. I was up a set and 3-0 and had a lot of chances to keep going, but [Jelena] came back to 3-all. She's such a good player—she was No.1 in the world a few years ago—so at the beginning of the match I was a little bit nervous. But I just tried to stay relaxed and keep going for my shots, and, although we were both very tired, I made it." WTA story

    Maria is now 5-6 in WTA singles finals; she has not won a title since 2008, but she also reached the Pattaya City final earlier this year. Maria's singles match record this season is 29-18.

    On Friday at Dallas, in the final of the Texas Tennis Open, last year's champ at 's-Hertogenbosch, Barcelona & Budapest, 29 year old 3rd seeded #26 (career high: #18) Roberta Vinci from Taranto, Italy, defeated the 2010 champion at Indian Wells (and 2008 US Open finalist), 27 year old 2nd seeded (top seed due to a withdrawal) #18 (and former #1) Jelena Jankovic, from Belgrade, Serbia, 7-5, 6-3 (Roberta is shown with the glassware after the match). Roberta's prize is $37,000; Jelena's prize is $19,100.

    Jelena said: "The most important moment was at 5-4 in the first set, I was serving for the set and had 30-15. If that ball went my way it would have been 40-15 and two set points on my serve. After I lost that, it seemed like everything went downhill. I started making a lot of errors and playing wrong, tactically.
    "After I was down 3-0 in the second set I changed some things a bit and got back in the match, but from there [Roberta] played really unbelievable tennis.
    "Overall I'm happy with my week though. I came here to play some good matches; unfortunately I didn't win, but I played some very good tennis."

    Jelena still leads Roberta 3-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2009 on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 1st round of the US Open, when Jelena defeated Roberta 6-2, 6-3.

    Roberta is now 7-1 in WTA singles finals. She won at Barcelona, 's-Hertogenbosch, and Budapest last year, but was the first final she has reached this season. Roberta has a 34-22 singles match record in 2012.

    Jelena is now 12-16 in WTA singles finals. She also reached the Birmingham final this year, but has not won a title since 2010 at Indian Wells. Jelena has a 26-24 singles match record this year.

    No news photos of the WTA tourney emerged from faraway Dallas all week, including the final, apparently they have no news media there, or perhaps all the pro sports photojournalists were out snapping pics of the all-important high school football.

    It was Andrea's first match since she tore right ankle ligaments in the 2nd round at Stuttgart in April of this year. Prior to Stuttgart, she had been sidelined by a back injury.

    Andrea said: "I was very nervous today, but also very excited. It was a great match and Timea was playing so well. I was really emotional after the match. When I was out with my back [early this season] and won my first match back in Stuttgart it was nice, but this time I've gone through more." WTA story

Agnieszka and Olga driving forehand and backhand

    Agnieszka said: "I've been struggling with my shoulder for a couple of weeks now, pretty much since the start of the hardcourt season two weeks ago. I think maybe the change of surface and balls since coming from the Olympics was just too much, and I've played a lot this year as well. I'm going to go and have some rest now and hopefully be ready for [the US Open on] Monday."

Domi and Petko driving forehand and backhand

    Dominika struck 2 aces, with 3 double faults while scoring on 7 of the 12 break points she reached against Andrea and totaling 57 points in the match. Petko also hit 2 aces, with 3 DFs, while converting 3 of the 6 break points she reached against Domi and totaling 44 points.

    Andrea is a bit rusty after missing almost all of this season thus far due to back and ankle injuries. Andrea said: "I'd play three or four good shots then miss horrible shots I'd never miss in a hundred years. My strokes and movement are just fine, but you can never simulate a match in practice, so when the stress of a match comes I feel like it's a totally new situation. And I've basically been out for eight months, so really the inconsistency in rallies and matches is the price I'm paying." WTA story

    Dominika will play 4-time champ Caroline Wozniacki in the New Haven Open quarterfinals on Thursday. Domi said: "[Caroline is] a year younger, but we travelled to all the same junior tournaments and played many matches against each other. I know the way she's playing, and she knows how I'm playing. It's two different styles as well. She's the defensive player and I'm the offensive player going for my shots. It's going to be a really good match."

Caroline and Domi driving forehand and backhand

    It was Caroline's 20th consecutive match victory at New Haven. Caroline struck 2 aces, with no double faults, while scoring on 5 of the 9 break points she reached against Dominika and totaling 55 points in the match. Domi hit no aces, with 2 DFs, while failing to convert either of the 2 break points she reached against Caro and totaling 31 points.

    Caro twisted her right knee during the 1st game of the 2nd set, and, after calling a medical time out, finished the match with the knee heavily taped, limping a bit at times. She will have the knee scanned later on Thursday, and then decide if she can continue in the tourney.

    Caroline said: "I always want to finish. I always want to do my best. You need to judge whether you can continue or you cannot. You need to judge whether it's going to get worse or it's not...
    "I felt like I played some great tennis out there. I played well. I played aggressively when I had to. Got a lot of balls deep when I felt pressured. I definitely am very pleased with the way I played today." Courant story

    Dominika said: "I was just too much watching [Caroline], what she's doing. Obviously with her knee injury, what she was doing, maybe it was too much thinking of her. I lost my rhythm, and it was just not going well at all."

    The loss ended Caroline's 20 match winning streak at New Haven. She had won the tournament the past four years in a row.

    Caroline said: "I know there’s a lot of crowd out there that would like to see this match. I felt like I could play, so that’s why I decided to go out... I would have loved to just play a normal match. It’s unfortunate. But these things happen. You know, you just need to move on." Courant story

    Maria said: "In the past I had the same problem; sometimes you're moving fine, but some steps it really hurts. When I'd play a good angle today I saw [Caroline] didn't run for it. She was for sure having problems, and I think she made the right decision to stop playing today and rest her knee before the US Open." WTA story
