Katowice:
#23 Alizé Cornet

    On Sunday in Poland, in the final of the BNP Paribas Katowice Open, the 2014 finalist at Dubai (and 2013 champ at Strasbourg), 24 year old 4th seeded #23 (career high: #11) Alizé Cornet from Nice, France, defeated 20 year old #67 (career high: #67) Camila Giorgi of Italy (residence: France), 7-6(3), 5-7, 7-5 (Alize is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Alize's prize is $43,000; Camila's prize is $21,400.

    Alize said: "What a match. It was definitely a huge fight, which is what I expected, and I had to save a match point to win the title, so it feels very special. I gave everything I had. I'm so happy I could win here at this beautiful tournament in Katowice." WTA story

    Alize and Camila had met only once before, in January of this year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the 2nd round of the Australian Open, when Alize defeated Camila 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

    Alize is now 4-4 in WTA singles finals, and has a 18-8 singles match record this season.

    Camila was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has a 13-6 singles match record for the year.

    Meanwhile at Bogota, in the final of the Claro Open Colsanitas, 20 year old 5th seeded #71 (career high: #70) Caroline Garcia from Lyon, France, won her first WTA singles title by defeating the 2013 Bogota champion, 29 year old top seeded #8 (and former #1) Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (residence: Dubai, United Arab Emirates), 6-3, 6-4 (Caroline is shown after match point).

    Caroline's prize is $43,000; Jelena's prize is $21,400. Jelena still leads Caroline 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on green clay in the 2nd round at Charleston, when Jelena defeated Caroline 5-7, 7-6(10), 6-3.

    Caroline said: "I'm very happy to win my first WTA title. It was a good week for me. It's never easy playing with the altitude. It's hard to adapt, and my level was going up and down throughout the week. But I think I adjusted well and I probably played my best match of the week today in the final.
    "I'm also really happy I was able to beat Jelena in the final. She's a really nice girl and a great player. She was the #1 player in the world, and I had to play the best I could today to beat her. To win a WTA title is always a goal. Today is the best day I could imagine." WTA story

    Caroline was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has an 11-8 singles match record this season.

    Jelena is now 13-19 in WTA singles finals, and has a 20-9 singles match record in 2014.

2014: On Sunday, April 6, Paula Ormaechea, Jelena Jankovic and Sloane Stephens participated in a pro-am exhibition...
Bogota, 1st Rd Mon-Wed 1030am
loser's prize: $1,925 US; points: 1
n8 s1 Jelena Jankovic SRB d n138 Mathilde Johansson FRA 7-5, 7-5 Wed

JJ driving a forehand

    Jelena said: "The conditions are a little bit different from what I played in last week [in Charleston] and throughout the year. It's high altitude, so the ball was really flying off my racquet. And not a little out, but one or two meters out. I only came here three days ago, so that's not enough to get used to it and feel comfortable. But I was fighting hard and was trying to stay strong even when I wasn't playing well. I managed to get through, so hopefully I'll get better and better with each match...
    "[Mathilde] played very well under these conditions. She was hitting the ball much better than I did. I was fighting well but I wasn't striking the ball very well, so I was lucky to break serve at the end and finish the match." WTA story

*n125 Mariana Duque Marino COL d n18 s2 Sloane Stephens USA 6-3, 6-3 Tue

Mariana ready to slice a backhand

    Mariana said: "I was prepared for a hard match. You never know what the score is going to be, but the match was much tougher than what the score indicated... I'm so happy. Not just for beating Stephens but also because I played really well. I think from the start of the match, I was really confident and it showed during the match." WTA story

*n77 Chanelle Scheepers RSA d n50 s3 Karin Knapp ITA 6-3, 7-6(4) Mon

    Chanelle said: "I was 6-3, 4-1 up and then [Karin] started playing really well. She started hitting her forehand pretty big. Then I was just trying to stay ahead and finish the second set. I'm glad to have gotten through in two sets. It was a tough match. Tough conditions to get used to. But it was the same for both of us. I'm just trying to play consistent, get a lot of balls back and get used to it as quickly as possible." WTA story

*n129 Irina-Camelia Begu ROU d n66 s4 Anna Schmiedlova SVK 6-3, 6-1 Tue

    Irina-Camelia said: "The conditions are very difficult with the altitude. Fortunately, I arrived a week early and played an ITF event in Medellín, Colombia, which has helped my game.
    "The rain delay also helped. [Anna] was up 3-2 when the rain caused our match to stop. I was able to come back out on the court focused, and then I won the next several games."

    "I like this country. I love the people, the altitude, everything."

Jelena driving a forehand

    Jelena said: "Lara is a hard player to play against. She has a lot of spin and variety in her game, so I just had to work the points as much as I could. I don't think I played that great today, but I was just trying to put as many balls in the court as possible and just hang in there. So that's basically it." WTA story

    Vania said: "I was happy to finish off the first set, and then I started the second set very aggressively. When I went up 5-2 [Mariana] started playing a lot better, but I'm glad I managed to finish it in the end.
    "It was another difficult match here. Every time you go on the court you have to stay really focused, because with the altitude you won't start feeling better every day; I don't think anyone can play too well here because of the conditions. You have to keep fighting. I'm playing well for the conditions."

It was a very tough match for me, I was 6-3, 3-1 up and she started playing better and I was too far from the baseline.
