    On Sunday in the Antwerp Final, 2nd-seeded # 2 (top seed after the withdrawal of Justine Henin-Hardenne) Kim Clijsters of Belgium easily defeated 8th seed # 20 Silvia Farina Elia of Italy 6-3, 6-0 (Kim is shown after match point).
    On Saturday night in the Memphis Final, top-seeded # 12 Vera Zvonareva of Russia narrowly defeated 2nd seed # 25 Lisa Raymond of the US 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 (Vera is also shown after match point).

    Winner 20-year-old # 2 Kim Clijsters has now won 21 WTA singles titles in 34 finals. She slashes power chords on a harp called a Babolat "Pure Drive" and wears Fila togs (and will not play in this year's Olympics due to loyalty to Fila-- the Belgian team is wearing all adidas). Kim is to marry former ATP #1 Lleyton Hewitt, no date has been specified. Kim hurt her left ankle in January at the Hopman cup in Perth, Australia, and apparently has a bone chip loose inside there (the media has been vague about it), but she wants to avoid surgery if possible. Kim reached the Australian Open final last month and won last week in Paris; she is doing very nicely for having a gammy leg. It doesn't even stop her from doing the splits.
    31-year-old # 20 Silvia Farina Elia is a Strasbourg specialist; all 3 of her WTA singles titles were won in that city (the past 3 years in a row). This was the 11th WTA singles final of her career, and the first final she has reached outside of Strasbourg since Jan 2001. Silvia wears Sergio Tacchini togs and swings a Prince racquet (she was converted from Wilson last year). Her career high singles rank is # 11, but she has hung out around # 20 for most of the past few years.
    Kim now has a 6-0 career record against Silvia, but Silvia almost got her last week in the Paris QF: Kim won 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

    2 more players, # 1 s1 Justine Henin-Hardenne, and # 10 s4 Elena Dementieva, withdrew from the Proximus Diamond Games on Thursday. Justine had been battling an upper respiratory infection since last week, and Elena incurred a right shoulder strain. This has created the very unusual situation of having 2 Lucky Losers receive 1st round byes.
    Justine said: "Until Saturday I was in bed and only on Sunday I stopped taking antibiotics. I have waited as long as possible, out of respect for the organization and the fans, but I couldn't go on. It is difficult to breathe and should I play, that would only get worse. I thought the pros and cons and I am convinced that I took the right decision." story
    Venus Williams withdrew from the Proximus Diamond Games on Saturday night, due to the knee injury that she incurred at the Australian Open and aggravated at the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo. s5 Patty Schnyder was moved into Venus' spot, and so given a 1st round bye, Maggie Maleeva, who was to play a Lucky Loser or qualifier in the 1st round, was designated s9 and will take Patty's place to play the currently hot Mary Pierce instead. Maggie must be thrilled. Why didn't they just have a Lucky Loser play Mary? This way they wind up with q/LL v q/LL. What for?.
    s6 Francesca Schiavone also withdrew, after spraining a toe, apparently during the doubles final in Paris on Sunday. This made Magui Serna s10, but since Francesca didn't have a 1st round bye, it didn't mess things up as much.
    There were 2 wild cards, 4 qualifiers, and 2 Lucky Losers in the 28-player main draw. The top 2 remaining seeds and 2 LLs got 1st round byes.
    The time zone for Antwerp is GMT (UCT, ZULU) +1 hours (US Pacific Time +9, Eastern Time +6). Antwerp DOES have live scoring (the link is above). Early round play begins at 10:00 am local time.

    Winner 19-year-old # 12 Vera Zvonareva had won 1 previous WTA singles title (in Bol last year); this is the 3rd WTA singles final she has reached. Vera wears "The Mark with 3 Stripes" (the "Barricade II" shoes are quite popular, also worn by Justine Henin-Hardenne and that Hingis girl you may have heard about) and wields a "Fischer Pro Tour FT" bat, a racquet made by a ski company (not a household word, but about 6 of the WTA top 100 use them).
    30-year-old # 25 Lisa Raymond has won 4 WTA singles titles, including the Memphis tourney the past 2 years. Lisa is perhaps better known for having won 42 WTA doubles titles, mostly with her ex-partner Rennae Stubbs. Lisa is attired in Prince garb and swings a Prince bat.
    Lisa and Vera had played just once before, in Philadelphia last October, when Lisa won 6-3, 2-6, 6-2

    Winner # 57 Nicole Pratt of Australia, who will turn 31 next month, was playing in just her 2nd WTA singles Final. Nicole has won over $1.5 million in career prize money and has been ranked in the top 60 for over 4 years (reaching a high of # 35), but this was her 1st WTA singles title (she has 4 doubles titles). Nicole has a nice looking website: NicolePratt.com. Nicole also wears Nike; she swings a Babolat "Pure Drive" (the same model Kim Clijsters chops with). Nicole recorded victories over Meghann Shaughnessy and Lina Krasnoroutskaya earlier this year.
    # 148 Maria Kirilenko of Russia, who turned 17 last month, was playing in her first WTA singles final. Maria won the juniors title at the 2002 US Open. Maria wears Nike and the stick she hits the ball with is a Yonex.
    Maria and Nicole had played just once before, in Bali in 2002, when Maria was 15. Nicole won 6-2, 6-4.

    There were 2 wild cards and 4 qualifiers, in the 32-player main draw. There were no 1st round byes.
    The time zone for Hyderabad is GMT (UCT, ZULU) +5 hours (US Pacific Time +13, Eastern Time +10). Hyderabad DOES have live scoring (the link is above). Early round play begins at 11:00 am local time.

Laura Granville

Laura said: "[Bea] is a really dangerous player. She has a difficult serve and that makes it tough. I was nervous about that, but was able to play through it... I'm trying to take more chances. And try to go down the line more often. You have to go for it when it is there."

18-year-old Ashley said: "I've been practicing hard the last few weeks, so it was good to see that pay off... It can be hard sometimes being on the road and sometimes it can be lonely. But my parents or a coach go with me to each stop and I like to travel. It is harder traveling when you lose, and not so hard when you win."

Maria said: "I thought I did pretty well in controlling the match. It was in my hands the whole time. I just went out there and I did what I had to do."

#52 s7 Kristina Brandi PUR d #224 wc Carly Gullickson USA 6-0, 6-0

Kristina said: "[Carly is] kind of a crowd favorite and hometown girl, so I was pretty much going out there and expecting all those things. It made me even more focused. I didn't make that many errors. I was just trying to finish the match as quickly as I could... Any time she won a point, the crowd was really excited, which is great. I think that's real exciting. But I knew for myself, I needed to be really focused."

Carly said: "The first game, I missed like three returns. I was up 40-15 in like three games and could not win the games. Then, I realized I hadn't played a match in a while. Match toughness just wasn't there. I have 14 tournaments to play this year. Hopefully, I'll get better in them and get more experience... In practice, I make those shots. Hopefully, if I play more matches, I'll be able to make those and not make so many unforced errors."

Vera said: "I was a little bit lucky at 5-3 when [Tathiana] had two set points. Then, I just tried to keep my serve at 5-4. At 5-all, I was playing for every ball and trying not to miss and give her a chance... It's always tough to play the first match, especially when Tathiana had already played a match. I'm just happy I did well."

#25 s2 Lisa Raymond USA v #149 q Galina Voskoboeva RUS 6-2, 6-3

Lisa said: "I love playing in Memphis. Anytime you come back to defend a title, you put a little extra pressure on yourself and you want to perform, not only for yourself, but for the people and the crowd. The people have supported me the last couple of years. [Galina] was a little flashy. She hit some good serves and had some decent groundies. But I just think as long as I take care of what was going on on my side of the net, I was going to be fine."

#26 s3 Maria Sharapova RUS d #150 q Tatiana Panova RUS 2-1 retired-- upper respiratory illness

Tatiana said: "I've been sick for three or four days. I thought I would be able to play the whole match, but there was nothing that I could do. I didn't have any power... After the first game, I didn't think I could do it for the whole match."

About her QF opponent Amy Frazier, Maria said: "[Amy is] a very solid player. She's a veteran on the tour. I'm going to have to step up my game a little bit in that match. I'm going to have to do that in order to win."

#43 s4 Laura Granville USA d #139 Maria Elena Salerni ARG 6-4 7-6(4)
*#112 Gisela Dulko ARG d #46 s5 Ashley Harkleroad USA 7-5, 7-6(3)

Gisela said: "I didn't expect to come here in the beginning. I got in the main draw at the last minute, and now I'm in the quarterfinal. It's very nice. I'm playing good."

Ashley said: "I've never really seen [Gisela] play that good, honestly. She's been playing better, and that's great. I didn't think I played badly. There could have been some things that I could have done differently, but I really don't know if that would've helped me win the match today... That's one of the best tiebreakers I've seen somebody play... [Gisela] hit seven winners in a tiebreaker. You've just got to clap your hands and say, 'Good job'."

#25 s2 Lisa Raymond USA d #120 Lindsay Lee-Waters USA 6-0, 4-6, 6-1

Lisa said: "It was just a matter of a point here and there, and then the next thing you know, the second set is over and I lost the set. I was up a lot of games on her serve and I stayed calm. I knew if I got off to a good start in the third set, I'd be fine."

#26 s3 Maria Sharapova RUS d #50 s6 Amy Frazier USA 6-2, 6-4

Maria said: "I'm driving the ball a lot more than in previous tournaments. It's that rhythm you get in that makes a big difference."

Amy said: "I knew she was going to start well. I wasn't in the service games at all, which usually, I like returning. But I wasn't in the games at all. I was just trying to get points on her serve, and hopefully that would maybe lead to a break."

#43 s4 Laura Granville USA d #52 s7 Kristina Brandi PUR 6-3, 7-5

Laura said: "I don't know how many times my serve was broken, but I was just happy because the last game of the match, I really served my best. I was happy that my serve finally picked up at a crucial moment. I just went for the lines and some of them went in. I didn't think I had a very good service percentage for the match, but the last few service games I did."

Kristina said: "I'm pretty disappointed in myself because I had a lot of opportunities to win games. I was at 40-15 a lot and wasn't able to convert. It was hard for me to figure out why. It seemed like it was happening so quickly. But that's one thing I can say I'm not happy about."

Maria won the first 3 games, and led 4-1 in the first set. Vera said: "[Maria] didn't give me the chance to realize how to play on the court. She was just hitting everything as winners. Then, I took my serve at 3-0 and I found my game a little bit."

Maria said: "I played really well until I got to 4-1 and then I ran out of gas."
