    Serena is now 53-16 in WTA singles finals. She has a 51-3 singles match record this year, losing only to Sabine Lisicki, Victoria Azarenka, and Sloane Stephens.

loser's prize: $1,800 US; points: 1
n33 s1 Mona Barthel GER d n235 wc Chiara Scholl USA 6-0, 6-0 Mon

Mona serving

    Mona said: "I think one time I had another match that was also around 35 minutes too, but I lost a game in that! I still can't believe the score and it's the first time I've won 60 60 at a WTA tournament, so that was really good for me...
    "It's sometimes difficult to play in the conditions here, as it's really high and the ball flies very fast through the air. It takes some getting used to and I'm pleased with how solid I was today - I was returning well, serving well and hit quite a few aces." WTA story

    The win broke a 17 match losing streak for Arantxa, which had tied the WTA record for most consecutive losses.

    Arantxa said: "In the last month, I've been playing better tennis. But you need to play very well to win matches in this level. There were a few matches where I had chances to win. But I didn't change as a person and knew I could turn it round. Even so, it is a big relief to finally win today and in such a close match!"

The Collector Swedish Open (formerly the Nordic Light Open), once held at Stockholm's 1912 Olympic Stadium, was moved to Båstad in 2009. Båstad has been the site of the ATP Swedish Open since it began in 1948; the women also played there until 1990. Båstad Tennis Stadium is a few hundred yards from the beach, close to Pepe's Bodega, a local restaurant and nightclub. The stadium was rebuilt in 2002 to accommodate the Hotel Skansen underneath the seaside bleachers.

n1 s1 Serena Williams USA d n101 Anna Tatishvili GEO 6-2, 6-3 Thu

    On Wednesday evening, Serena had won ESPY awards as best female athlete and best female tennis player.

    Serena said: "I want to do the best that I can here. I'm staying really focused, Grand Slam style. You never want to go to a tournament and not win, or at least not perform your best. I don't know if I'll end up winning the tournament this week, but I want to play some of my best tennis here." WTA story

*n100 Flavia Pennetta ITA d n30 s2 Simona Halep ROU 4-6, 7-5, 2-0 retired—low back injury Thu

    Flavia said: "It was a little bit of a strange match. We fought a lot in the first set. In the second set I started to play much better, much more aggressive, and I was up 5-2. I got a little bit tight and [Simona] came back to 5-all, but I was just trying to fight until the last ball, and I won the set.
    "Then in the beginning of the third set I saw she was a little bit tired and injured, which is normal when you've played so many matches. I wish her the best to recover and come back very soon...
    "I knew going in that she's playing better than me right now [after a six month wrist injury lay-off], but when I go on the court I just try to play my best and always think I can win. It's just really important to go onto the court and believe you can win against anybody. If you don't believe, it's that much tougher." WTA story

*n276 q Richel Hogenkamp NED d n61 s6 Lesia Tsurenko UKR 6-1, 2-6, 6-3 Thu

    Richel said: "It feels very good, not just because it's my first WTA quarterfinal, but before the match I knew if I won I would be in the qualifying of the US Open. So of course it's just a great feeling. It was a really big stadium and I was really nervous but I'm glad I ended the match as the winner."

    Serena said: "[Lourdes] was playing really well, so I had to be patient and stay out there as long as I could. I'm getting more used to the clay again. It feels a little better now. I want to play two more matches and win on the last day, but I have a really tough opponent coming up." WTA story

n42 s3 Klara Zakopalova CZE d n276 q Richel Hogenkamp NED 6-2, 6-3

    Klara said: "The score looks easy but it was not an easy match because it was windy, and the wind was changing a lot. But [Richel is] a young and talented player. I never played against her but my coach was watching her so I knew some things, and I'm really happy I'm through today."

Serena after match point

    Serena said: "I was hardly making mistakes in the first set... In the second set [Klara] started playing a lot better. She was being more aggressive, and I started making some errors on a few key points... I'm happy I could close it out though." WTA story

    About the final, Serena said: "[Johanna] has nothing to lose and everything to gain, and that's a great position to be in. I remember playing her this year. She has a good serve, a good kick. I always thought she'd be good on clay. And I remember her spirit. She was fighting really hard. I'm excited that she's in the final."
