    On Sunday at Hong Kong, in final of the Hong Kong Open, the 2013 Wimbledon finalist (and 2011 champ at Birmingham and Dallas), 24 year old top seeded #28 (career high #13) Sabine Lisicki of Germany (residence: Bradenton, FL), defeated the 2013 Kuala Lumpur champion (and 2014 Nuremberg & Pattaya City finalist), 22 year old 3rd seeded #42 (career high: #36) Karolina Pliskova from Louny, Czech Republic, 7-5, 6-3 (Sabine is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Sabine's prize is $43,000; Karolina's prize is $21,400.

    Sabine trailed 1-5 in the 1st set, then won seven straight games, and 12 of the next 15, to take the set and the match.

    Sabine said: "I never give up. I always fight and go for everything. When I was down my coach told me to just go for my shots and just keep fighting." tourney story

    Sabine now leads Karolina 3-0 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on a chlorophyll court in the 2nd round of The Championships at Wimbledon, when Sabine defeated Karolina 6-3, 7-5.

    Sabine is now 4-5 in WTA singles finals. She has a 23-13 singles match record for the season.

    Karolina is now 1-3 in WTA singles finals. She has a 42-25 singles match record this year.

    On Sunday at Quebec City, Canada, in the final of the Coupe Banque Nationale, a 1999 Wimbledon semifinalist, 32 year old #108 (career high: #32) Mirjana Lucic-Baroni of Croatia (residence: Sarasota, Florida), defeated the 2014 champion at Dubai, 34 year old top seeded #20 (and former #1) Venus Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, 6-4, 6-3 (Mirjana is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Mirjana's prize is $43,000; Venus's prize is $21,400.

    It was Mirjana's first WTA title since 1998. The 16 year gap between titles is the longest in WTA history (previous record: 13 years, 1 month, by Kimiko Date-Krumm).

    Mirjana said: "I played such a great match today against one of the best players in the world, such a champion... It's been so long... after starting with my new coach Julian Alonso, winning matches and really getting that belief back, I'm just so ready to keep going." WTA story

    Venus said: "It's not typical that when you go for every shot they almost all go in. I think I played pretty well, but [Mirjana] just played better than me."

    Venus still leads Mirjana 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on red clay in the 2nd round at Florianopolis, when Venus defeated Mirjana 6-3, 6-3.

    Mirjana is now 3-1 in WTA singles finals; she was playing in her first final since 1998. She has a 24-21 singles match record for the year.

    Venus is now 45-30 in WTA singles finals. She has a 30-13 singles match record this season.

    On Saturday in Uzbekistan, in the final of the Tashkent Open, the 2008 finalist at Antwerp, 27 year old 3rd seeded #71 (career high: #35) Karin Knapp from Lutago, Italy, won her first WTA singles title by defeating the 2013 tourney champion (and 2012 Baku champ), 22 year old top seeded #36 (career high: #32) Bojana Jovanovski from Belgrade, Serbia, 6-2, 7-6(4) (Karin is shown holding the hardware—and headware—after the match).

    Karin's prize is $43,000; Bojana's prize is $21,400.

    Karin said: "I can't say how happy I am right now. I've had five surgeries, so many months of lay-offs in the last six years, in and out of tennis the last two years due to bad knee problems - but I knew it was possible for me to win a WTA event one day, and I'm so happy I could do it here in Tashkent." WTA story

    Bojana and Karin had met only once before, earlier this year on red clay in the 1st round at Madrid, when Bojana defeated Karin 6-1, 6-1.

    Karin is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals. She has a 23-23 singles match record this year.

    Bojana is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals. She has a 20-24 singles match record in 2014.

Francoise and Venus driving forehand and backhand

    Venus said: "I definitely expected a really competitive match. I saw Francoise play in Montréal, I was actually rooting for her, she was playing so well and got so close. So I figured she'd come out and really play well. Most of the opponents that I play against come out and play well against me.
    "The first set was just one break at the end. And the second set I think I was able to get a little bit more rhythm on her game, because I hadn't played her before. I started to understand what her game was about and really use my experience out there. But I have to say she really played amazing." WTA story
