    On Saturday at Acapulco, in the final of the Abierto Mexicano, the 2012 champ at Barcelona, 25 year old top seeded #7 (career high: #6) Sara Errani from Bologna, Italy, defeated a quarterfinalist at Melbourne in 2009 and at Roland Garros in 2008, 24 year old 2md seeded #28 (career-high: #22) Carla Suarez Navarro from Barcelona, Spain, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 (Sara is shown holding the ballware en sombrero after the match).

    Sara's prize is $40,000; Carla's prize is $20,000.

    Sara said: "In the first set the ball was much more live and the points were going much quicker, and I just played an incredible set. Even in the second set until 2-0 for me, 15-40 on her serve, I was in control, playing very aggressively. But the ball started getting heavier and the rallies were getting much tougher, and also she started to play much better. It got very difficult at the end." WTA story

    Carla said: "I have no reason to be sad - she just played better than me. She was unbeatable tonight. But I'm still satisfied. This is a great tournament and I had a great week here."

    Sara now leads Carla 5-3 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in January on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the 1st round of the Australian Open, when Carla defeated Sara 6-4, 6-4.

    Sara is now 7-6 in WTA singles finals; she has a 18-7 singles match record in 2013. Carla is now 0-4 in WTA singles finals; she has a 10-8 singles match record this season.

    On Saturday at Florianopolis, in the final of the Brasil Tennis Cup, the 2012 (& 2011) finalist at Luxembourg, 25 year old #74 (career high: #28) Monica Niculescu from Bucharest, Romania, won her first WTA singles title by defeating the 2006 finalist at Kolkata and Quebec City, 25 year old #111 (career high: #32) Olga Puchkova of Russia (residence: Miami Shores, FL), 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 (Monica is shown getting acquainted with the glassware after the match).

    Monica's prize is $40,000; Olga's prize is $20,000.

    Monica said: "It got very tough at the end. But I just kept fighting. I knew I had to be more aggressive but still think a lot on the court, and I was able to gain control of the match at the end again. I was very tired, so I am very happy I could win tonight." WTA story

    Olga and Monica had never before met on the field of combat.

    Monica is now 1-2 in WTA singles finals; she has a 14-5 singles match record this year. Olga is now 0-3 in WTA singles finals; she has a 9-7 singles match record this season.

    On Sunday at Kuala Lumpur, in the final of the BMW Malaysian Open, 20 year old #128 (career high: #107) Karolina Pliskova from Louny, Czech Republic, won her first WTA singles title by defeating the 2011 Hobart finalist, 27 year old #197 (career high: #30) Bethanie Mattek-Sands from Phoenix, Arizona, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 (Karolina is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Karolina's prize is $40,000; Bethanie's prize is $20,000.

    Karolina and Bethanie had met only once before, last year on an indoor hardcourt in the 1st round at Linz, when Bethanie defeated Karolina 6-3, 7-6(4).

    Karolina was playing in her first WTA singles final; she has a 11-6 singles match record this year. Bethanie is now 0-4 in WTA singles finals; she has a 10-6 singles match record in 2013.

    12012 Acapulco champ Sara said: "It was a good match considering the complications of adjusting to such a big change in time zones, so I'm very happy to be able to continue on." WTA story

n28 s2 Carla Suarez Navarro ESP d n85 Mathilde Johansson FRA 6-1, 6-0 Tue

    Carla said: "It was a good match. The score doesn't reflect how difficult it was. She has an aggressive style of play and hits a lot of flat balls that come at you very fast. Physically, I need to be really ready for her style of play. I've played here a few times and it's tough because of the heat and humidity, but I really like it and I like Acapulco. It's a good tournament."

    "I've played four matches here after going through qualifying, so I'm really used to the conditions. I've had a few tough weeks the past few weeks, but I've found my rhythm and I'm playing well this week."

I just did a normal preparation and tried to be focused from the first point, knowing that that every point was crucial.
    "Then I had a little bit of a break. My opponent played very flat and fast, so it was not an easy match. I'm glad I was able to finish in straight sets before the rain came again."
