    On Sunday at Moscow, in the final of the Kremlin Cup, the 2013 champion at New Haven, Budapest, 's-Hertogenbosh & Nuremberg, 21 year old 5th seeded #17 (career high: #17) Simona Halep from Constanta, Romania, defeated the 2012 Moscow finalist (and 2013 champ at Osaka and Carlsbad), 29 year old 7th seeded #20 (career high: #4) Samantha Stosur from Gold Coast, Australia, 7-6(1), 6-2 (Simona is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Simona's prize is $132,470; Samantha's prize is $70,728.

    Simona said: "Maybe Sam was tired because she won in Osaka last week, and after Asia I had about 10 days of break because I had a right shoulder injury. But I recovered well from that, and now I feel good, and my game was very good this week. Maybe I was just a little bit fresher today...
    "I've been playing more aggressively this year, hitting the ball very strong, and I'm more relaxed on the court and have been focusing much better on every point. I still have a few things I want to improve, but I will work on them in the off-season. I'm very happy with how I'm playing now...
    "It's been an incredible year for me. I've won five titles now. I feel incredible." WTA story

    Samantha said: "I think it was quite a battle to get to the tie-break in that first set. I was down 3-1 and got it back on serve, which was great. But [Simona] really got on top of me in that tie-break, and from then on it was a real uphill battle. But all credit to her. She played solid the whole way through today."

    Samantha still leads Simona 3-2 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in August of this year on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 3rd round at Cincinnati, when Simona defeated Samantha 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.

    Simona is now 5-3 in WTA singles finals; she won all five finals she played in this year. Simona has a 48-17 singles match record in 2013.

    2011 US Open champ Samantha is now 5-13 in WTA singles finals; she won her 5th a week ago at Osaka. Samantha has a 39-21 singles match record this year.

    Meanwhile at Luxembourg, in the final of the BNP Paribas Open, the 2012 champ at Seoul & Moscow, 23 year old top seeded #9 (and former #1) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated the 2012 Roland Garros juniors champion, 19 year old #57 (career high: #46) Annika Beck from Giessen, Germany, 6-2, 6-2 (Caro is shown holding the artware after the match).

    Caroline's prize is $40,000; Annika's prize is $20,000.

    In her trophy acceptance speech, Caroline said: "Annika, you're a great player and a great fighter, and most of all you're a great person and fun to hang out with off the court. Your team is very nice too. Just keep working hard and I'm sure we'll have many more finals in the future." WTA story

    Annika said: "I had a great week and played some great tennis, but Caroline was just too good today. When I lost my serve at 3-2 in the second set I tried to stay calm but she was playing great, so congratulations to her. She really deserved to win the tournament."

    Caroline and Annika had never before met on the field of combat.

    Caroline is now 21-13 in WTA singles finals. Luxembourg was her first title this season, though she reached the final at Indian Wells. Her 2013 singles match record is 39-22.

    Annika was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has a 24-28 singles match record this year.

Here you don't have any windows or sunshine so you completely lose sense of time and I was just so into the game that I wasn't even thinking about how much time it was taking.
    "It's great, the crowd was amazing today. We were also playing some good tennis and when you play well the crowd finds it hard not to support you. I'm very happy that so many people were here cheering for me so much today."

n20 s7 Samantha Stosur AUS v n22 s8 Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS 6-2, 6-4

Samantha's forehand drive

    Samantha said: "At the start we were both struggling to hold serve, and [Svetlana] had 0-40 on me in my second service game and I was able to get out of that, and I think that kind of gave me a little bit of a head up. We know each other's games pretty well, so it was still pretty tight all the way through with who was going to hold, but I think it was just about taking my opportunities when I got them today." WTA story

    Svetlana said: "I felt a little bit low energy today but Sam was serving well and playing well, so good luck for her in tomorrow's final. From my side I hope to have more energy for next time. My level dropped like 25%, which wasn't enough to complete against a player who plays as well as Sam does."
