    "Today was a great match. Venus is always very tough. She's a great champion and showed that again today. I'm just happy that after losing that second set I managed to stay calm and close it out." WTA story

    The Brisbane International was formerly known as the Australian Women's Hardcourts, and was held at nearby Gold Coast. In 2009 the tourney was moved to the newly-constructed Queensland State Tennis Centre at Tennyson, a Brisbane suburb. The $AUD 82 million Tennyson facility has 23 courts, including four clay, two natural grass and 17 hardcourts. Centre court, named Rafter Arena after Aussie Patrick Rafter, a 2-time US Open champ, seats 5,500.

    Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory do not observe daylight savings time (other Aussie provinces do; as in Britain, it is called Summer Time rather than daylight savings). Thus the time in Brisbane during the summer months is 1 hour earlier than the time in Sydney and Melbourne.

Maria's forehand drive

    Maria had not played since August due to a right shoulder injury.

    Maria said: "I think I was just really determined to get back on the court. It's been a while. I think the whole team was really ready to go out. I knew I was going to play Monday night a little bit ago already. I got goosebumps when I heard because I was looking forward to today even a week ago. It's those days you work for. It was a big step to come and a big step to play out there tonight." WTA story

Andrea and Serena driving forehand and backhand

    Serena said: "It was an intense match, which was really good. [Andrea is] a good player. She's been in the top 10 before and she was on her way to being even better. So it was a really good match for me. I usually have a lot of nerves, but when I realized who I was playing I felt like it was a really good opportunity for me to have a tough match early on. That kind of made me more calm than anything." WTA story

    Victoria said: "It's great to just finally be out there. It was a long wait. I couldn't wait to go out there... I was still getting into it towards the end of the second set.
    "I think towards the end it's important to just be the same way as you started the match and to keep that pressure, because in the end anybody can come back. They're loose. They have nothing to lose." WTA story

It's not easy to play against someone like that because you know the other one can't run, but you need to try just focusing on your game as though she is still fit. You need to do that and just focus on yourself."

    Serena had a good day serving, delivering 12 aces. Serena said: "[Domi] was returning really well. She stays so low to the ground and does so many good things, especially off the ground. She's so powerful. So of all opponents, I definitely wouldn't have expected to do so well on serve against her. But I was able to serve really well today." WTA story

Maria's forehand drive

    Maria said: "[Kaia is] a really tough opponent. I've had fairly good success against her in the past, but she's had her bit of success. She's won this tournament before, so I knew that she would be able to play on this court and she enjoys it. For me it was a slow start. I wasn't very sharp in the beginning. I'm happy I pulled it through, and at this stage it's a good match for me to get through."

    Maria will play Serena Williams in the semifinals. Serena leads Maria 14-2 in career matches.. Their most recent meeting was last year on red clay in the final at Roland Garros, when Serena defeated Maria 6-4, 6-4.

    Maria said: "I haven't had a lot of success against [Serena] in the past. But it's the first tournament of the year. I came here wanting to play as many matches as I could and wanting to play the best. There's no substitute for getting ready for a Grand Slam than competing against the best... You always hope that you can go out and give yourself a chance to do better next time."

Maria and Serena driving forehand and backhand

    Serena said: "The quality of the match was very high, especially from Maria's end, so it was good for me to come up with a win in that match," Williams said. "We're both very strong returners, and personally I couldn't get a first serve in today. My first serve percentage was really low... But it was fun. Some of those points were really long and the intensity was so high. Maria was hitting extremely hard and I was retrieving a lot. So was she. My gosh, she was getting so many balls back." WTA story

    Maria was pleased with her progress in returning from a right shoulder injury. Maria said: "I had a few missed chances. It was tough being a small break up in that tie-breaker and also missing that forehand just a little bit wide. But overall I was happy I could compete at this level in my third match back. I really have to take the positives out of this, because I have been struggling for a few months. This was a good sign for me. It was definitely a good week and good test for me."

    About playing Victoria Azarenka in the final, Serena said: "It's a good rivalry. She's so intense on court, and off court she's so cool. So that's what makes the rivalry the best, is because when you step on the court I don't know her and she doesn't know me, and we fight like crazy. When it's over, it's over. There's a lot of mutual respect there."

n2 s2 Victoria Azarenka BLR d n8 s4 Jelena Jankovic SRB 1-6, 6-3, 6-4

   
JJ and Vika driving forehands

    Victoria said: "Jelena played really, really well in the first set. I felt that I could have done better, but it's just the matter of getting that timing and really fighting through it.
    "I was able to change it around in the second set. I really tried to apply the game I wanted to apply, whereas in the first set it was a little bit out, a little bit short. So I had to get into that timing because I felt I was doing the right thing. It wasn't the best execution, but she was playing some really good tennis out there today."

    Jelena said: "As the match went on she was getting on top of me and I was going down. It was close until the end. Even in the third set, when I was 5-1 down and came back to 5-4 and just missed a couple of bad returns. I was stuck, I don't know why.
    "But so far so good. I played a good tournament. You never know what to expect from yourself after such a long break, but I think I did pretty well here."

    "I was actually very happy that I got the chance to play Li Na in the first round. It gave me an opportunity to play on center court in front of a big crowd, and I really enjoyed the moment. I got some really great experience out there today. I also know what I have to work on and improve, and hopefully I'll do a little bit better next time." WTA story

    As you might expect, each international "tie" consists of 3 "rubbers," 2 singles and 1 doubles.
