    On Saturday at Florianopolis, in the final of the Brasil Tennis Cup, last week's finalist at Rio (and 2005 champ at Portoroz & 's-Hertogenbosch), 32 year old 3rd seeded #35 (career high: #21) Klara (Koukalova) Zakopalova from Prague, Czech Republic, defeated the 2014 champion at Hobart, Tasmania, 20 year old 2nd seeded #34 (career high: #38) Garbine Muguruza from Barcelona, Spain 4-6, 7-5, 6-0 (Klara is shown holding the glassware after the match).

    Klara's prize is $43,000; Garbine's prize is $21,400.

    It is Klara's first title since 2005. Klara said: "I was playing well in the first set but [Garbine] was just playing a little bit better, but in the second set she was just playing amazing. But then maybe she started making a few mistakes and I was a little bit more patient. After I won the second set I told myself that anything could happen.
    "I was losing the whole match, but anything can happen in a final. I think I got a little bit lucky here and there and I'm very happy I could make it through and win the third set, and win the title." WTA story

    Klara now leads Garbine 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was early this year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the final at Hobart, Tasmania, when Garbine defeated Klara 6-4, 6-0.

    Klara is now 3-12 in WTA singles finals. She has a 18-7 singles match record this season.

    Garbine is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals. She has a 17-4 singles match record in 2014.

    On Saturday at Acapulco, in the final of the Abierto Mexicano, the 2014 Australian Open finalist (and 2013 champion at Stanford), 24 year old top seeded #13 (career high: #12) Dominika Cibulkova from Bratislava, Slovakia, defeated 21 year old #71 (career high: #24) Christina McHale from Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 (Domi is shown en sombrero, holding the ballware after the match).

    Dominika's prize is $43,000; Christina's prize is $21,400.

    Dominika said: "I expected a really tough match and this was over my expectations. I have to say, it was an extremely tough match. [Christina's] defense was amazing today. We had so many long rallies and the match was so up and down, but I was fighting for every point and I'm really happy I could win this." WTA story

    Christina said: "I was happy with the way I fought today. I think Dominika played really well today. I was just trying to stay with her. But hopefully there will be more finals to come for me."

    Domi leads Christina 3-0 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2012 on red clay in the 1st round at Brussels, when Domi defeated Christina 7-6(1), 6-1.

    Dominika is now 4-6 in WTA singles finals. She has a 13-6 singles match record this year.

    Christina was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has won 1 ITF singles title and 3 ITF doubles titles. Christina has a 9-5 singles match record in 2014.
