#73 Daniela Hantuchova
5'11¼" 123lb RH 2H-BH

#12 Andrea Petkovic
5' 11" 152lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday at Pattaya City, Thailand, in the final of the Pattaya Women's Open, the 2012 & 2007 PWO champion (and the 2002 & '07 Indian Wells champ), 31 year old #73 (career high: #5) Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), won her 3rd Pattaya title (and 7th WTA singles title) by defeating 21 year old #68 (career high: #55) Ajla Tomljanovic of Croatia (residence: Boca Raton, Florida),
6-3, 3-6, 6-4 (Daniela is shown after match point).

    Daniela's prize is $43,000; Ajla's prize is $21,400.

    Daniela now leads Ajla 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the 3rd round of the Australian Open, when Ajla defeated Daniela 6-4, 7-5.

    Dani said: "Today was very tough because Ajla was playing some great tennis. I had to really fight for it. At the end I felt maybe I was fresher and sharper, and that decided the match.
    "But Ajla has a great future ahead of her. She's also a very nice girl. It's nice to have somebody like her in the game. Like I said on the court, I'm sure she'll have many more finals to come." WTA story

    Meanwhile at Antwerp, Belgium, in the final of the Antwerp Diamond Games, the 2014 champion at Charleston & Sofia, 27 year old 3rd seeded #12 (career high: #9) Andrea Petkovic from Darmstadt, Germany, defeated the 2014 Oeiras champ, 26 year old 5th seeded #17 (career-high: #14) Carla Suarez Navarro from Barcelona, Spain, by a walkover, when Carla could not play due to a neck injury (Andrea is shown holding the hardware after the match). It was Petko's 6th WTA singles title.

    Andrea's prize is €100,000; Carla's prize is €53,548.

    Petko played Antwerp Tournament Director Kim Clijsters in a 1 set exhibition in lieu of the final.

    Andrea said: "Right before we went on court I was warming up and they told me the news. At first I was very shocked because I didn't know anything about her physical pain and the blockage. But secondly I was sad. I really like Carla - she's a great person and always friendly and positive, and she has a tremendous amount of talent. Also, you can never really enjoy the win when you don't fight for it. So I'm happy I had a great week and I'm leaving as the champion, but definitely mixed emotions." WTA story

    Carla said: "I woke up in the morning and just felt this pain in my neck. I went to the physio to get treatment and tried to play at 11:30, then had physio again and tried to play again at 2:15, and I just couldn't serve. I couldn't play like I wanted. So I had to pull out of this final. I'm really sorry. I love this tournament and I had a great week. I really tried today."

    Petko and Carla remain tied at 2-2 in career matches. Their most recent meeting was last year on an indoor hardcourt in the round robin at the Sofia Tournament of Champions, when Carla defeated eventual champion Andrea 6-0, 6-4.

    Domi said: "Today, it was quite a good performance from my side. I went into the match not expecting too much of myself. It was my first match in a few weeks and totally different conditions than Melbourne. I practiced here for four days and my coach just told me to do my best and everything I did out there was really working. Of course I could have served better or done some other things better, but overall I'm very pleased with how I played. I stayed strong in the important points and that's what made the result look so easy, even though it wasn't." WTA story
