Carlsbad:

#13 Samantha Stosur
5' 7" 143lb RH 2H-BH
Washington, DC:

#39 Magdalena Rybarikova
5' 11" 143lb RH 2H-BH


    On Sunday at La Costa Resort, Carlsbad, California (north of San Diego), in the final of the Southern California Open, the 2011 US Open champion, 29 year old 5th seeded #13 (career high: #4) Samantha Stosur from Gold Coast, Australia, defeated the 2013 Australian Open champion, 23 year old top seeded #3 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-2, 6-3 (Samantha is shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Samantha's prize is $125,000; Victoria's prize is $68,200.

    Samantha scored on 4 of her 5 break points against Victoria; Vika converted only 1 of her 12 break points against Sam.

    Samantha said: "That's something I have to be very happy with, to be able to step up to the line under that pressure and hit the serve where I want to, how I want to, time and time again. I know what it feels like not to be able to break serve when you have opportunities, and it gets pretty frustrating. That was a huge part of that match, and carrying that from the first set to the second set as well." WTA story

    Victoria said: "[Samantha] was serving really well today. I just felt like I was fighting and trying to do the same thing that wasn't working today. I kept doing the same idea, and that wasn't very smart for me to do out there. I have to give her credit though. She played a great match today - there's no doubt about that."

    It was Sam's first win over Vika in 9 career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on red clay in the quarterfinals at Rome, when Vika defeated Sam 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.

    Samantha is now 4-12 in WTA singles finals, and has a 24-15 singles match record this season.

    Victoria is now 16-13 in WTA singles finals, and has a 31-4 singles match record this year, losing only to Ekaterina Makarova, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, and Samantha.

    Meanwhile, at Washington, D.C., in the final of the CitiOpen the 2012 CitiOpen champion, 24 year old 7th seeded #39 (career high: #39) Magdalena Rybarikova from Bratislava, Slovakia, defeated the 2011 champion at Strasbourg, 25 year old #63 (career high: #9, ranking down due to injury) Andrea Petkovic from Darmstadt, Germany, 6-4, 7-6(2) (Magda is also shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Magdalena's prize is $40,000; Andrea's prize is $20,000.

    Magdalena said: "I played great today. I couldn't be happier. Today there were some really good parts of the match for me. Andrea was playing too well at the beginning so I'm happy I managed to win the first set. And then again at the end she started playing very well again, and I was getting a little tight and my arm was kind of shaking, so I'm really happy I could play a great tie-break there."

    "[Andrea] was top 10 and she's had so many injuries, tough injuries, and it's really not easy to come back so well like she has... She's one of the nicest girls on the WTA for sure... I hope she can be a Grand Slam champion someday." WTA story

    Andrea may have been tired: because of the rain, the "Saturday's" second semifinal (Petkovic d Cornet) did not begin until 12:32 am on Sunday, and ended at 2:10 am.

    Andrea said: "Magda was really stepping up her game, not missing a lot and not giving me many free points. It was a really difficult match but all the credit to her, she really deserved to win the title today."

    Magda and Petko had never before met on the field of combat.

    Magdalena is now 4-1 in WTA singles finals, and has a 24-15 singles match record in 2013.

    Andrea is now 2-5 in WTA singles finals, and has a 20-9 singles match record this year.

    Ana said: "As soon as the draw came out I thought this was one of the toughest first round matches, but I was really happy with my performance today, especially in the last two sets. Since Wimbledon I've been working on consistency and hitting a lot of balls, and I did work out in the gym a lot, trying to get stronger and more stable. This gives me good motivation to keep doing that." WTA story

Vika's backhand drive

    Victoria had withdrawn from Wimbledon due to a knee injury. Vika said: "Just going on the court and competing was so much joy for me. I missed playing and I was just happy to be able to do something I've been training for. I enjoyed the time I had to go through rehab and learn so many new things. I was excited to see how I would handle it in the match. It was a good feeling to have that platform, and I'll just try to make it better and better." WTA story

n4 s2 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n46 Daniela Hantuchova SVK 6-3, 6-3 Thu

    Agnieszka said: "I was really happy with my game, especially in the second set. I started to play much better in the second set, and much more aggressively. I'm really happy to win in two sets." WTA story

n7 s3 Petra Kvitova CZE d n31 Laura Robson GBR 6-1, 6-2 Wed

Petra driving a backhand

    Petra said: "I didn't know exactly what to expect from myself because the first match after preparing for the US hardcourts is always difficult, plus I lost to [Laura] at the Australian Open. But this is tennis, and every day is different, and that's how I approached the match. I played well and my serve was great today. We practiced very hard on my serve back home after Wimbledon."

n11 s4 Roberta Vinci ITA d n54 Bethanie Mattek-Sands USA 6-4, 6-2 Wed

    Roberta said: "I played a good match today. I played well, consistent and aggressive. She played so-so, but that's probably because I was playing well. It's not so easy, a tough opponent and first match back in Carlsbad, but I'm happy, I'm confident, I'm playing well, and I'm happy with my game right now."

Virginie's service toss

    Virginie said: "It was a great match. I've worked very hard on my game and physically in the gym too, so that I could come back up the rankings, and the last two or three months I've had some good results recently. Things don't come too quickly for me - I really have to work my way back into form...
    "Now I'm back on my favorite surface and I'm very happy to be in the semifinals of a big tournament like this. Day after day and week after week I'm working so hard, and I think I deserved this...
    "After the French Open last year I had to stop for six months because of a right hip injury. I didn't play and I didn't defend some of my points, and that's why my ranking was in the 200s three months ago. It's very difficult to come back if you're not playing and defending your points...
    "This year in January I couldn't play a lot of tournaments because my ranking was so bad. I didn't even get into the qualies for WTA. And there weren't many ITF tournaments from January to March. But I practiced a lot. I stayed home and just practiced. There's no secret. I took my time, focused on my job, worked on my game, and now I'm back on the court. It's not easy to come back from all of this and all the problems I've had before, but you can't give up. You really just have to keep going." WTA story

Ana about to slice a backhand, and Vika driving a forehand

    Victoria said: "Ana is really a very big shotmaker. She loves to take her opportunities and just bang the ball and find those deep shots. That's what she does, and I was aware of that. For me, it was key to not let her take those shots, and I had to be the one putting the consistent pressure on her." WTA story

    Ana said: "I felt like I gave [Victoria] too many easy points, especially at the important moments, like deuces. But again, that's the belief you have to have against these kind of players. If you give them chances, they'll use them. I actually created a lot of chances myself, and if I just managed to convert a couple more of those chances, it could have been a different match."

    Andrea said: "I think we can both play much better, but considering the circumstances I think we were playing fine. We were both a little off-rhythm on the serve because we hadn't played under the lights here yet. I was struggling there. But apart from that and a little bit of a slow start, I was moving well and hitting the ball okay. Given everything today, I think I was playing fine."
