#24 Jelena Jankovic
5'9½" 130lb RH 2H-BH

#1 Serena Williams
5'9" 150lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday at Daniel Island, Charleston, South Carolina, in the final of the Family Circle Cup, the 2012 & 2008 Charleston champion (and last month's champ at Miami), 31 year old top seeded #1 Serena Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, won her third FCC title by defeating the 2007 Charleston champion (and 2013 champ at Bogota), 28 year old 9th seeded #24 (last week, #18 this week, and former #1) Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (residence: Dubai, United Arab Emirates), 3-6, 6-0, 6-2 (JJ is shown during her semifinal victory, Serena is shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Serena's prize is $125,000; Jelena's prize is $65,000.

    Serena struck 2 aces, with 2 double faults, and scored on 5 of the 13 break points she reached against Jelena while totaling 92 points. Jelena hit 5 aces, but with 7 DFs, while converting 2 of her 3 break points against Serena and totaling 72 points.

    At the trophy ceremony, Serena said: "I smiled on the court for the first time in forever, so thank you [Jelena] for making it fun."
    Jelena said: "I had an unbelievable week. Love the sofas here. Congratulations to Serena. Maybe next time she can play worse?"

    At her postmatch press interview, Serena said: "[In the 2nd set] I was just trying to be more consistent. I felt so close in that first set. I felt like I could have been up 3-0. She was playing really, really well, but it was just a shot here, a shot there, and she played really well in the big points...
    "After that I just got really relaxed and was like, 'Serena, you have to chill out and not get crazy and if you win, great. If not, you're trying. She's playing really well. Just try and do the best you can." WTA story

    For the press, Jelena said: "I thought I played pretty well in that first set. I was holding my serve and then waiting for my chance to break. In the second set I had 40-15 in that first game and then again in another couple of games I had 40-15, 40-0. I should have focused and gotten those games.
    "Of course she's going to go up and feel much better and she's again in control. That was unfortunate for me. In the third set I had some chances but I got tired... She was the better one at the end."

    Serena now leads Jelena 6-4 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on a chlorophyll court in the 1st round of the London Olympic Games at Wimbledon, when Serena defeated Jelena 6-3, 6-1. Their only prior meeting on clay was in 2010, in the semifinals in Rome, when Jelena defeated Serena 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(5).

    15-time Grand Slam tourney champion Serena is now 49-22 in WTA singles finals, and has a 19-2 singles match record in 2013, losing only to Sloane Stephens and Victoria Azarenka.

    Jelena is now 13-17 in WTA singles finals, and has a 17-6 singles match record this year, winning 14 of her last 17 matches.

    In Mexico on Sunday, in the final of the Abierto Monterrey, the 2011 & 2010 Monterrey champion, 21 year old 5th seeded #25 (career high: #13) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova from Moscow, Russia, also won the title a third time, by defeating the 2012 Copenhagen and Paris indoor champion, 25 year old top seeded #6 (career high: #5) Angelique Kerber from Kiel, Germany, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4.

    Angelique and Anastasia had met only once before, early this year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the quarterfinals at Brisbane, when Anastasia defeated Angelique 7-6(3), 7-6(3).

    Anastasia, now 15-0 in Monterrey, is now 4-2 in WTA singles finals, and has a 12-7 singles match record this year.

    Angelique is now 2-3 in WTA singles finals, and has a 15-8 singles match record for the season.

n24 s9 Jelena Jankovic SRB d n88 Melanie Oudin USA 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 Tue

    Miami semifinalist (and 2007 Charleston champ) Jelena said: "Overall I think it was good match. It was my first, first match on clay. I just came from Miami [where] I was playing a long tournament and took a lot out of me physically, mentally. It was a point for me just to stay positive and just somehow win this match to get through this one.
    "It was difficult and I think Melanie played quite a good match. She was hitting the ball very well and I'm grateful that I was able to pull this out." postmatch interview

Serena driving a forehand and Camila ready to swat one

    Serena struck 9 aces, with no double faults; Camila fired 5 aces—but with 12 DFs.

    Serena said: "It was definitely not great for me. I think I played well, but I wasn't, great footing wise, I was just trying to get my stability and, you know, only had one or two days of practice. But it's good. I felt really good. I think I played someone really good today and it's good to get this under my belt." postmatch interview

Caro lining up a forehand

    Caroline said: "I felt like I served really well today, and returned really well too. Playing your first match of the year on clay, it's always going to be difficult to slide and move unbelievably, but I felt like I did a pretty good job of that out there and I'm pleased with my work." WTA story

n10 s3 Samantha Stosur AUS d n62 Marina Erakovic NZL 6-1, 6-2 Wed

Samantha's forehand drive

    Samantha did not play at Miami due to a calf injury which forced her to withdraw from the Indian Wells quarterfinals. Samantha said: "I'm really pleased with the way I went out there and played today. I went for my serve a lot and whenever I had the opportunity I tried to get the ball off the court. That's why it really worked so well and helped me think out there, 'Okay, this is going well, I've got to keep at it.'"

n18 s5 Venus Williams USA d n102 Monica Puig PUR 6-2, 5-7, 6-3 Wed

    Venus said: "[Monica] really found her rhythm in the second set. She started controlling the points, so in the third set I just tried to play confident and hopefully get some first serves in. But she played really, really well. She should be looking forward to a lot of great wins in the future."

n19 s6 Lucie Safarova CZE d n101 Mirjana Lucic-Baroni CRO 7-5, 6-1 Wed

Lucie driving a backhand

    Lucie said: "It was very quickly on my side by one, and then [Mirjana] just released and started to hit everything so fast, and just going in. So maybe I should have pushed her more at that time, and I let it slip. And then, at 5-4, I catch back my concentration and started to try to do more. Like I said, it went good." postmatch interview

Caroline and Jelena driving backhand and forehand

    Jelena said: "[Caroline] played so well today. She was serving well, hitting the ball great. The credit to her, it was a really great match.
    "I was able to stay strong in that second set and the tie breaker was really crucial. It was like one 12-10 and she had a couple of match points and I made the aces from second serve on the set point and I played pretty brave then.
    "But then in the third I thought I lifted the level of my play... And I'm happy with that because normally you get tired and you play worse and you are not moving and you are not hitting. And I played much better. I started serving much better. I started hitting the ball more aggressively and I finished the match off in a nice way." postmatch interview

Genie following a backhand

    Genie said: "I was really excited to get out there, and I felt like I played really well. It's unfortunate that [Samantha] had to retire. I thought she was serving pretty well, but we had some points where she wasn't running for the balls. I thought the court was pretty slippery out there so I kind of didn't run for some of the balls either, but she had like big tape on her leg, and I saw that. It's much better to win with a full match, but I'm excited to be here for [the quarterfinals] tomorrow." WTA story

Serena fielding a forehand

    It was the first time in her career that Serena has had (due to rain on Thursday) to play two singles matches in one day. Serena said: "It's actually not that bad to play two matches in one day. It's not ideal, but I play doubles all the time, and so I looked at it like, 'Okay, I play singles and I play with Venus in doubles the same day.' So really that's how I looked at it." WTA story

Stefanie driving a forehand

*n72 Stefanie Vogele SUI d n9 s2 wc Caroline Wozniacki DEN 3-6, 6-4, 6-3

    It was Stefanie's first win over a top 10 player. Stefanie said: "My plan was to play aggressive and push [Caroline] around. At the beginning of the match I was a little bit nervous. I was trying to play my game, but it didn't work very well in the first set. But then I started to do much better and tried to push myself harder, because she's so good.
    "At the end I was just trying to play aggressive on every point and I'm very happy it worked."

n18 s5 Venus Williams USA d n76 Madison Keys USA 6-4, 6-4

Venus about to swat a forehand

    Comparing her two victories on Friday, Venus said: "Lepchenko is definitely more methodical, heavy spin. She's very strong, and obviously has a lot of confidence, having gotten to the Top 20 and done a lot of things over the last year. It was so different than playing Madison. She plays similar to me. Goes for a lot more, a lot more power. And she can create a lot of shots in the court, too. So they were definitely two polar opposites."

Genie about to slice a backhand, Jelena driving one,
and Jelena during her post-match press conference after being told that the win was her 500th career match victory

    About her 500th win, Jelena said: "I actually didn't know that... I had no idea how many wins I had. I'm really bad with statistics. I don't follow any of that. But it's pretty nice. It's a great achievement to get my 500th win, and hopefully I can have many more... To have 500 wins you have to have a pretty long career and be pretty consistent."

Venus serving, and Serena fielding a forehand

    Serena struck 6 aces, with 1 double fault, and totaled 52 points. Venus hit no aces, with 8 DFs, while totaling 30 points.

    About playing her sister, Serena said: "When I'm out there, I'm really just focused on the ball. I don't really focus on anything else, and I just try to go out there and do the best that I can.

    "Venus has had a great week, and honestly, if she hadn't had to play so many matches, it would have been a much tougher match. She'll never admit it, but I don't think she was 100%. But you will never get that out of her." WTA story

    About having (due to rain) to play three matches in two days, Venus said: "It would have been nicer to have more space between the matches, but it did not work out... I had a chance to win the match. We both had racquets. But I didn't take advantage of my chances. I was controlling the points, but then I would miss. I have to improve my game."

    Monica said: "Timea won here last year, she feels good here and the crowd was supporting her. I think I played well in the important moments, though, like at 5-all in the first set and at 4-2 in the second set, and I managed to win today. I'm excited to be in the semifinals."
