Monterrey:

#37 Timea Bacsinszky
5' 7" 137lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday at Kuala Lumpur, in the final of the BMW Malaysia Open, the 2014 champ at Istanbul (and US Open finalist), 24 year old top seeded #5 (and former #1) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), won her 23rd WTA singles title by defeating the 2009 & 2010 Warsaw champion, 25 year old #94 (career high: #26) Alexandra Dulgheru from Bucharest, Romania, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 (Caroline is shown holding the hardware after the match).

    Caroline's prize is $43,000; Alexandra's prize is $21,400.

    Caro said: "I think [Alexandra] played well the whole match. She tried to play aggressive and take the ball early. But I knew she had a tough match yesterday, so I just kept playing my game and kept trying to put pressure on her. I think I stepped it up in the second and third sets, and it paid off." WTA story

    Caroline now leads Alexandra 3-0 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last week on a Plexipave hardcourt in the 2nd round at Doha. Caroline won 6-1, 3-0 retired when Alexandra was unable to continue due to an upper respiratory infection.

    On Sunday in Mexico, in the final of the Abierto Monterrey, last week's champion at Acapulco, 25 year old 5th seeded #36 (previous week, March 2 at #31, March 9th at a career high: #26) Timea Bacsinszky from Belmont-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, defeated last week's finalist at Acapulco (and 2014 champion at Bogota), 21 year old 3rd seeded #30 (career high: #30) Caroline Garcia from Lyon, France, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 (Timea is shown befriending the hardware after the match).

    Due to a four hour rain delay, the match was not completed until 12:54 AM. Timea's prize is $111,389; Caroline's prize is $55,435.

    It was Timea's 10th consecutive match victory. Timea said: "I'm just really happy to play so well at the beginning of the year. I'm going to keep trying to push my limits in the next tournament I'm playing. I hope to keep improving all parts of my game, doesn't matter whether I'm winning or losing. I always just want to be a better tennis player, and be a better person too." WTA story

    Caroline and Timea had met only once before, a week ago on a Plexipave hardcourt in the final at Acapulco, when Timea defeated Caroline 6-3, 6-0.

Ana and friend meeting the press after the match

    Nicole was playing in her first WTA main draw since she retired in 2010. She began a comeback last year, but had played only in ITF tourneys until this week.

    Ana said: "When I saw I was going to play against [Nicole] I knew it would be a tough match because she's a great player. She didn't play for a while, and now she wants to play again, and in the second set she was playing really well and making some really good shots out there. I'm happy I won the tie-break because you never know what will happen in a third set." WTA story

*n94 Alexandra Dulgheru ROU d n28 s2 wc Sabine Lisicki GER 6-4, 7-5 Tue

    Alexandra said: "[Sabine] was struggling a bit on her serve, which is usually her best shot. Mentally, today I was prepared for her best tennis and stayed focused for every point, because I knew she is capable of hitting winners from nowhere. She showed this at 4-0 down in the second. At that point I just tried to hang in there and I'm really glad I managed to find my rhythm and get through."

    Jarmila said: "Buyukakcay played really well today and she had a solid game. I hit a lot of balls back to make her run and I attached her serve whenever I could as I was bent on playing aggressively to stay ahead. At 5-3 for example, I had 3 set points and I made full use of it. I am looking forward to playing more consistently for a more solid performance on court." tourney story

    Julia said: "It was quite hot and humid today. I think I played a solid first set but in the second set Kudryavtseva was a different player as she had more depth on the ball. But during the tie breaker I managed to take advantage and from then on I made sure I didn't let her back into the game."

Caro fielding a forehand

    Caro said: "[Lin] played very aggressively, very flat. But I served very well, ran down a lot of balls and kept fighting. It's always difficult when you play someone for the first time and it took me a while to figure her out. To her credit, she played very well and I had to work hard in the first set." WTA story

Jarmila about to swat a forehand

    Jarmila said: "I had a good first set against a very tough opponent. The rain disrupted the match, stretching it a lot longer than I had expected. This quarterfinal match was the first match I played at night as I played my earlier two matches during the day. After the second set, I got back into my element and I hit a lot tougher and stronger while limiting myself from committing too many unforced errors to beat Nara." WTA story

She hit hard and made me run all over the court chasing the ball, but luckily for me I still had energy left, and by the time we got to the third set, she was hitting quite a few double faults and unforced errors on the court."
