    On Saturday at Dubai, in the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, the 2012 champ at Montreal and New Haven (and 2011 Wimbledon champ), 22 year old 6th seeded #8 (career high: #2) Petra Kvitova from Fulnek, Czech Republic, defeated the 2012 champ at Barcelona, 25 year old 5th seeded #7 (career high: #6) Sara Errani from Bologna, Italy, 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 (Petra is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Petra's prize is $442,198; Sara's prize is $240,644.

    Petra said: "I knew I had to keep fighting for every ball, because [Sara] was really on fire in the second set, and continued that in the third too. I was just thinking to not give up and just fight for every point. When it was 2-1 and she missed a volley, and I think that was a turning point for me.
    "I was quite down after the second set. I just tried to stay positive and just play." WTA story

    Sara said: "In the beginning [Petra] was hitting so strong and making winners from everywhere, so I had to change something. I tried to go to the net more and be more aggressive... From the baseline she was playing unbelievable and it was very tough, so I just tried to put some more pressure on her somehow, and it was working.
    "I had many chances in the third, many game points, and I lost them. If I got to 2-all there would be more pressure on her to close the match, but it was 4-1, 5-1, and then it was very easy for her."

    Petra now leads Sara 4-0 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, when Petra defeated Sara 6-4, 6-4.

    Petra is now 10-2 in WTA singles finals, and has an 12-5 singles match record this season. Sara is now 6-6 in WTA singles finals, and has a 13-7 singles match record in 2013.

    In Memphis, Tennessee on Saturday, in the final of the US National Indoor Tennis Championships, the 2012 Memphis finalist, 24 year old #73 (career high: #45) Marina Erakovic from Auckland, New Zealand, defeated the 2011 champ at Birmingham and Dallas, 23 year old 3rd seeded #40 (career high #13) Sabine Lisicki of Germany (residence: Bradenton, Florida), 6-1 retired when Sabine could not continue due to gastrointestinal illness (Marina is shown greeting the guitarware after the match).

    Marina's prize is $40,000; Sabine's prize is $20,000.

    Marina said: "It's not always fun and it's not always great, and it doesn't always work out the way you want it to, but when you win tight matches or win titles, it's all worthwhile." WTA story

    Sabine said: "I put all the energy I had left in my body into the match, but I just couldn't keep going. I had been sick the last three days already. But Marina had a great tournament and I want to congratulate her for her first WTA title."

    Marina and Sabine are now tied at 2-2 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on a hardcourt in the quarterfinals at Pattaya City, Thailand, when Sabine defeated Marina 5-7, 6-3, 6-2.

    Marina is now 1-2 in WTA singles finals, and has an 10-4 singles match record this season. Sabine is now 3-4 in WTA singles finals, and is also 10-4 singles match record for the year.

    In Bogota, Colombia on Sunday, in the Copa Colsanitas final, the 2010 champion at Indian Wells, 27 year old top seeded #25 (and former #1) Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (residence: Dubai, United Arab Emirates), won her first title in almost three years by defeating 30 year old #195 (career high: #111) Paula Ormaechea from Buenos Aires, Argentina, 6-1, 6-2 (Jelena is shown getting acquainted with the glassware after the match).

    Jelena's prize is $40,000; Paula's prize is $20,000. JJ and Paula had never before met on the field of combat.

    At the trophy ceremony, Jelena said: "I want to congratulate Paula for such a great tournament this week, playing so well and beating such good players. I'm sorry I had to beat you today, Paula. But I think you're playing really good tennis and I wish you the best of luck for the rest of the upcoming season.
    "I had a wonderful week here. It's been an amazing experience. I'm so happy I was able to come here to Bogotá for the first time and winning my 13th WTA title here makes the experience even better." WTA story

    Jelena is now 13-16 in WTA singles finals, and has a 8-3 singles match record this year. Paula was playing in her first WTA singles final; she has an 8-4 singles match record in 2013.

loser's prize: $10,183 US; points: 1
n7 s5 Sara Errani ITA d n19 Julia Goerges GER 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 Tue

    Sara said: "[Julia] was playing the ball very strong. Maybe I've never seen somebody hitting that strong on the forehand. She was also serving strong and the court is fast, so it wasn't easy. I just tried to defend, tried to play my game, make as few unforced errors as possible and try to put the ball back when I could. It was a tough challenge, but of course I'm very happy I could win." WTA story

n8 s6 Petra Kvitova CZE d n75 q Daniela Hantuchova SVK 6-2, 6-1 Tue
n9 s7 Samantha Stosur AUS d n20 Ekaterina Makarova RUS 6-3, 6-1 Tue

Samantha serving

n10 s8 Caroline Wozniacki DEN d n18 Lucie Safarova CZE 6-2, 6-2 Tue

Caroline driving a backhand

    Caroline said: "Last time [I played Lucie] it was a lot tougher, 7-6 in the third set, and I lost. In general I felt the ball pretty well today. I feel the ball sometimes flies here a little bit, but I thought it was okay today...

    "Lucie is a tough opponent. She takes the ball really early, really fast, and it's tricky to play a left-hander as well. So I'm happy to be through. There were quite a few positives to take from it."

    Lucie hit 45 unforced errors in the match (Caroline had 9). Lucie said: "I was making way too many mistakes, and I couldn't get into the rhythm. Caroline was bringing the balls back, I was missing."

n11 wc Marion Bartoli FRA d n24 Klara Zakopalova CZE 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 Mon

    Marion said: "Honestly, I felt I played extremely badly the first set and a half, but I managed to play a lot stronger and turn the match around from 6-3, 4-3 down. [Klara] won just one game after that, so I'm really pleased with the way I was able to turn the match around today."

n12 Nadia Petrova RUS d n15 Dominika Cibulkova SVK 5-7, 6-3, 6-2 Tue
n13 Ana Ivanovic SRB d n28 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova RUS 6-3, 7-6(5) Mon

Ana driving a forehand

    Ana had a 4-0 lead in the 2nd set—then Anastasia managed to push it to a tiebreaker. Ana said: "[Anastasia] really started striking the ball a lot deeper and harder when she had her back against the wall towards the end of the second set. It was getting kind of difficult. I'm really happy I managed to stay in that match and finish in two sets. It really was a good effort, I think." WTA story

n16 Roberta Vinci ITA v n51 q Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS Tue c1 m3
*n31 Sorana Cirstea ROU d n17 Sloane Stephens USA 5-7, 6-3, 6-2 Mon

Sorana serving

    Sloane said: "Tough match. She obviously played some good tennis. Today I didn't play my best tennis. Every match isn't going to go the way you want it, and obviously I got a little frustrated, but no need to dwell on it. You just keep working hard and hanging in there and you'll be okay."

*n29 Su-Wei Hsieh TPE d n21 Varvara Lepchenko USA 6-1, 6-3 Mon
*n97 wc Yulia Putintseva KAZ d n45 wc Laura Robson GBR 6-4, 2-6, 7-6(6) Mon

n4 s3 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n97 wc Yulia Putintseva KAZ 7-5, 6-3

Agnieszka driving a backhand

    Agnieszka said: "It's always tough playing someone you don't know, and also the first match of the week is always tricky. But even when I didn't play my best tennis today I was really fighting for every point, and I'm just happy I could come back in the first set and win it in two sets." WTA story

    Yulia said: "I take a lot of experience from this match. I think it's a big step in my career to play against a Top 5 player for the first time. I think it's great. I enjoyed the moment a lot and I'm quite happy with what I did on the court. We'll see if I can do better next time. We'll see how it will go."

*n16 Roberta Vinci ITA d n6 s4 Angelique Kerber GER 7-5, 6-1
n7 s5 Sara Errani ITA d n31 Sorana Cirstea ROU 6-4, 6-4
n8 s6 Petra Kvitova CZE d n13 Ana Ivanovic SRB 7-5, 7-6(1)

    Petra said: "I started the match pretty well. I started without mistakes and everything, and I thought, 'It can't be like this all match.' Then Ana started to play quite aggressively from there. She was serving quite well, and my serve wasn't as good as it was before, so I was having some trouble. She came back in the match, and it was quite tough for my nerves too, but I'm glad I did it in the end."

    Ana said: "She started impeccable. There wasn't much I did wrong. I thought it was a high quality match. I'm disappointed I didn't use some opportunities I had towards the end of both sets, but it was really close, which is good. Just a few points here and there to decide it.
    "Petra is a very clean striker of the ball. Especially when she hits it in the sweet spot it's very hard to pick up where she's going to go, too. You sort of have to choose and commit to one side."

    Sara said: "The first two games of the second set were so long, the second set was very long even if it was 6-0. In the third set I just tried to get more aggressive and more concentrated. I tried to show her I wasn't tired. I just tried to recover and be positive and face these things." WTA story

*n16 Roberta Vinci ITA d n9 s7 Samantha Stosur AUS 6-2, 6-4

 
Samantha driving a forehand, and Roberta launching one on the run

    Roberta said: "It was a great match for me, a great performance. [Samantha] has a great serve, a great kick serve, and for me it was difficult to return because I have a one-handed backhand. But today I played aggressively on the court when I could and it was a good game for me, just like it was yesterday."

n10 s8 Caroline Wozniacki DEN d n11 wc Marion Bartoli FRA 4-6, 6-1, 6-4

 
Marion following a forehand, and Caroline's backhand drive

    Caroline said: "It was disappointing to lose that first set after I had been up; I'm happy I turned it around. In the third set I was down 2-0 and it could have been 3-0, and all of a sudden it wasn't looking good, but I kept fighting and every game was close, and I'm happy I ended up winning it...

    "Usually girls have a first serve and a second serve, but Marion doesn't have a second serve, she has two first serves. Both serves are at least 150 or 160Ks [160kmph ~ 100mph]. So you just need to be on your toes. She steps in, she's in the court on your serves, as well. You feel the pressure. But you just need to be ready and know it's going to be coming fast at you."

Dubai, SFs, Fri 5pm & 7pm
loser's prize: $128,910 US; points: 200
n7 s5 Sara Errani ITA d n16 Roberta Vinci ITA 6-3, 6-3

 
Sara driving a backhand, and Roberta serving

    Sara said: "I just tried to play my game, tried to be as solid as I could. It's tough because we know each other very well and know how each other plays, so I had to do what [Roberta] didn't think I would do. It's very difficult to play against someone who knows what you're going to do in every shot."

    Roberta said: "I had to play aggressive, but [Sara] missed probably two or three balls, and when you play against someone who doesn't miss any balls, it's tough to play long points every single point. She played better than me today. But for sure I'm happy I played an unbelievable tournament. This is my first semifinal here, and I won against two top 10s. I played a great tournament."

n8 s6 Petra Kvitova CZE d n10 s8 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 6-3, 6-4

 
Caro and Petra delivering serves

    Petra said: "It was a great match. We are different players. [Caroline] tries to put the balls back, and I'm the person who is playing aggressively and going for the winners. So what happens in the match really depends on if I'm missing a lot or no, and I played well today." WTA story

    Caroline said: "[Petra] just went for every shot and hit it deep, and I came under pressure straightaway. I thought I served well, though. In the second set I think I had my chances, and I probably should have taken them but I didn't... She played a very good match out there. Petra's a player that when she's on fire, she's on fire, and she wins a lot of matches."

    About the final, Petra said: "[Sara] has a good forehand with big spin and is quite fast on the backhand. She moves very well, too. She has had great results in the past and played quite well today, and she beat Petrova yesterday too. She's a very tough opponent. I think it will be a really tough match tomorrow."

    "In the third set, I was 5-1 up and Galina started playing really well, playing free, hitting winners, and it ended up going to a tie-break. It was a really tight one, but I'm so glad I was able to get through it." WTA story
