    On Sunday at Tokyo, in the final of the Toray Pan Pacific Open, the 2007 PPO finalist and 2014 champ at Birmingham, Auckland & Monterrey (and the 2008 French Open champion), 26 year old 3rd seeded #10 (and former #1) Ana Ivanovic of Serbia (residence: Basel, SUI). defeated the 2010 Pan Pacific Open champion (and 2014 champ at Istanbul & US Open finalist), 24 year old 2nd seeded #9 (and former #1) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-2, 7-6(2) (Ana is shown holding the ceramicware after the match).

    Ana's prize is $196,670; Caroline's prize is $104,891.

    On court after the match, Ana said: "Caroline played a great match today. It was a really good battle out there. There were some very tough moments, especially in the second set. But I just tried to take it one point at a time, and I'm really happy to make it through. It's just an amazing feeling to win this title." WTA story

    Ana now leads Caroline 5-2 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the semifinals at Monterrey, when Ana defeated Caro 7-6(5), 6-4.

    Ana is now 15-7 in WTA singles finals. She has a 52-14 singles match record in 2014.

    Caroline is now 22-15 in WTA singles finals. She has a 43-16 singles match record this season.

    On Sunday at Seoul,, in the final of the Kia Korean Open, the 2013 Kuala Lumpur champion (and last week's finalist in Hong Kong), 22 year old 2nd seeded #36 (career high: #36) Karolina Pliskova from Louny, Czech Republic, defeated 28 year old 5th seeded #43 (career high: #19) Varvara Lepchenko from Allentown, Pennsylvania (birthplace: Tashkent, Uzbekistan), 6-3, 6(5)-7, 6-2 (Karolina is shown holding the vaseware after the match).

    Karolina's prize is $111,389 and a Kia automobile; Varvara's prize is $55,435.

    Karolina said: "In the second set I lost my serve a few times and had a few chances to break back, and I made it back to 5-all, but I didn't do well in the tie-break. She was playing so well, but after the second set I really cleared my head a little bit and started to play much more aggressively. In the third set she started to miss a few more shots and I think that's why I won today." WTA story

    Karolina and Varvara had met only once before, in 2009 on a hardcourt in an ITF tourney at Fort Walton Beach, when Karolina defeated Varvara 4-6, 6-2, 6-4.

    Karolina is now 2-3 in WTA singles finals. Her singles match record this season is 47-25.

    Varvara was playing in her first WTA singles final. Her 2014 singles match record is 27-20.

    On Saturday in China, in the final of the Guangzhou Open, the 2013 champ at Florianopolis, 26 year old #60 (career high: #28) Monica Niculescu from Bucharest, Romania, defeated the 2014 champion at Katowice, 24 year old 2nd seeded #22 (career high: #11) Alizé Cornet from Nice, France, 6-4, 6-0 (Monica is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Monica's prize is $111,163; Alize's prize is $55,323.

    Monica said: "I think it's very tough to play against me, because I put many balls back and run a lot and fight for every ball. I think in this heat and humidity it's definitely not easy to play against me." WTA story

    Monica now leads Alize 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2012 on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the 1st round of the Australian Open, when Monica defeated Alize 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.

    Monica is now 2-2 in WTA singles finals. She has a 26-21 singles match record this year.

    Alize is now 4-5 in WTA singles finals. She has a 31-21 singles match record in 2014.

The Toray Pan Pacific Open was previously held in February, indoors at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. However, rescheduling of the Fed Cup 1st round resulted in moving the tourney to September, and the venue was changed to the Ariake Tennis Forest Park, the same place where the AIG Japan Open was held for years. The Japan Open has now been moved to Osaka.

Toray Pan Pacific Open venue address: Ariake Tennis Forest Park, 2-2-22 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo

Although this is an outdoor event, the Center Court stadium has a retractable roof, which is closed in foul weather.

Domi serving

    A magnitude 5.6 earthquake centered north of Tokyo struck during the last game of the match. Many players felt the ground shake, but Dominika didn't notice it.

    Domi said: "I didn't even feel it. People were talking and I didn't really know what was happening... I'm really, really happy with my match today. The last two months were really tough for me. I didn't play as well as I wanted to, and I didn't feel that good on the court. So I'm happy to start so well in Asia. I've been playing well in practice, so I'm happy I could also play well in the match." WTA story

    Belinda said: "My first WTA win came here last year, so I have very positive impression of Japan. I always seem to play well here, so I'm happy to be back. It's now a year I've been playing in the seniors and I really love it...

    "I don't really like to set myself goals for a ranking, because I think it creates unnecessary pressure, but of course, I'd love to be in the top 30 as soon as possible. I'm not sure when, but I think if I get good results, it will come automatically." WTA story

n24 Victoria Azarenka BLR d n86 wc Kimiko Date-Krumm JPN 3-6, 6-0, 6-2 Tue

Vika's backhand drive

    Vika said: "[Kimiko is] a very tricky player and playing in Japan is definitely very special for her. From my end, I didn't really play that well in the first set and couldn't really find my rhythm. She's the type of player that doesn't really give you any rhythm, so it was a little bit challenging for me. I just tried to stay positive, to fight back and to find a way to turn the match around."

Caro's backhand drive

    Caroline said: "[Jarmila] was playing really well so I just tried to fight for every point. It took me a little while to get into it and she was hitting a very heavy ball. At the same time I was hitting too short and this gave her the opportunity to be very aggressive...
    "I got a bit lucky in the second set, but I managed to win it and then do the same in the third. It was a very close match." WTA story

Caro's forehand drive

    Caroline said: "I thought I played a little better than I did yesterday, but at the same time it was a completely different player today, we had a lot of long rallies. It was definitely a tough ride out there. I was just trying to stay, because Carla is a player that really uses the angles very well and she runs a lot of balls down, so I knew it wasn't going to be easy and I'd have to wait for the right opportunity to go for my shots."
