    On Sunday in Paris, in the final of the GDF Suez Open, the 2012 champion at Hobart, Tasmania, 22 year old #38 (career high: #31) Mona Barthel from Neumunster, Germany, defeated the 2012 champ at Barcelona, 25 year old 5th seeded #6 (high: #6) Sara Errani from Bologna, Italy, 7-5, 7-6(4) (Mona is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Mona's prize is $117,000; Sara's prize is $62,300.

    Mona led 5-2 in the 2nd set, but Sara won the next three games. Mona said: "Even though I was up a set and 5-2, I knew she's a fighter and doesn't give any points away. I was a little bit nervous. It was my first final in such a big tournament and she was making it so difficult for me in the end. But I just tried to keep stepping in and going for my shots, and I had to keep telling myself I was still in a position to win the match despite all of those things." WTA story

    Sara said: "Mona serves so well, plays so well from the baseline and physically moves so well... I usually like to have more time to place the ball where I want but I was on a limit today, particularly on my serve. I tried my best, but she was just unbeatable today."

    Mona and Sara had never before met on the field of combat.

    Mona is now 2-1 in WTA singles finals, and has a 12-3 singles match record for the year.

    Sara is now 6-5 in WTA singles finals, and has a 6-4 singles match record in 2013.

    Meanwhile at Pattaya City, Thailand, in the final of the Pattaya Women's Open, the 2012 finalist at Pattaya City (and 2008 champion at Estoril, Barcelona, and Seoul), 26 year old 2nd seeded #15 (career high: #12) Maria Kirilenko from Moscow, Russia, defeated the 2011 champ at Birmingham and Dallas, 23 year old 5th seeded #36 (career high #13) Sabine Lisicki of Germany (residence: Bradenton, Florida), 5-7, 6-1, 7-6(1) (Maria is shown holding the ceramicware after the match).

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

    Maria said: "I feel great. To win a title is always special, but it's even more pleasure when you win such a tough one. It was tough. Sabine played very well. I'm very happy to win this title...
    "What worked best for me today was my forehand. And my return was really helping today too. I think I hit it very well." WTA story

    Sabine said: "I hadn't been in a final in a while, so even though it's a tough one to lose, I still feel very good about my week. I played some good tennis here. I was working so hard in the off-season and it's nice to see it's already paying off, especially since we're just at the start of the year right now... It was such a close match and I had chances to win, but I just didn't take them. I'll learn a lot though."

    Maria now leads Sabine 3-0 in career matches. They had not met since 2008, when, on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the quarterfinals at Cincinnati, Maria defeated Sabine 6-2, 1-6, 6-1.

    Maria is now 6-6 in WTA singles finals, and has a 9-2 singles match record this season.

    Sabine is now 3-3 in WTA singles finals, and has a 5-3 singles match record this year.

n15 s2 Maria Kirilenko RUS d n47 s7 Elena Vesnina RUS 7-6(6), 6-3

    Maria said: "Elena has improved a lot this year. It seems she has been working very hard. Now she looks like a top 20 player. It was a difficult match. The first set was very tight, almost one-and-a-half hours. The second set I definitely played better. I'm just happy I was able to get through such a tough match." WTA story

    Elena said: "It was a great match against Maria. I was just a little bit unlucky in the first set tie-break, with one or two balls making the difference. I tried to come back in the second set, but I just didn't have the energy. It feels like I played two tournaments this week with the conditions and all the rain. But no excuses, Maria is a great Top 20 player, a fighter."

n29 s4 Sorana Cirstea ROU d n178 q Anastasija Sevastova LAT 6-3, 6-0

    Sorana said: "At the beginning it was very tight but then I broke her at 4-3 and I started to play better. I'm very happy with how I've been playing the whole tournament. I really like this tournament. I think maybe that's why I'm playing so well here."

n36 s5 Sabine Lisicki GER d n68 Marina Erakovic NZL 5-7, 6-3, 6-2

    Sabine said: "I didn't serve perfectly. My service games were always close, but I was also almost always holding. That gave me a lot of confidence later when I was a break point down or at 15-30, that I could serve my way out of it. Sometimes the negative, you can turn into a positive."

    Sabine said: "I didn't have the rhythm on my serve in the first set, but in the second set I found it again. Nina hit some big serves today too. Sometimes it was also skipping off the line, not much you can do there. But I did a pretty good job to win and play well in the important moments in the match." WTA story
