    On Saturday afternoon in the final of the NASDAQ-100 Open in Miami, top-seeded Serena Williams of the US defeated 5th-seeded Elena Dementieva of Russia, 6-1, 6-1 (Serena is shown after defeating Eleni Daniilidou in their SF match on Thursday; Elena is shown while defeating Nadia Petrova in their SF).
    Elena struggled with her serve throughout the match, and the score reflects that more than any stellar play by Serena. Elena, who had 9 double faults (59 for the entire tournament) did not once hold serve in the match; both games she won came by breaking Serena's serve.
    Serena said: "I think each round I got a little better for sure. I think that's important, to get better by each round... [Serena's sister Venus who lost to Elena in their QF] gave me a lot of tips... so I kind of knew what to expect. I knew what to do." interview
    Elena said: "I feel like I was tired today on the court and couldn't move as well as I can... But I'm satisfied with the results for this tournament. I had couple very good matches and I'm glad to be in the final. Maybe I didn't play my best today, but I'm glad I'm lost so easy because now I'm going to work better on my serve... [Coach Olga Morozova plans] to change my toss.... Try to do it little bit in front of me, not behind... I had a problem with my shoulder and I used to play for a long time with an injured shoulder. That kind of serve, the slice serve, that's the only thing I could do. That's just begin to be a habit for me, a bad habit." interview

    Serena and Elena's only previous meeting was at Wimbledon last year, where Serena won 6-2, 6-2.
    22-year-old Serena has now won 24 WTA singles finals, including 6 Grand Slam tourneys. This was her 1st tourney after recovering from knee surgery last August. Serena has just begun a huge new contract to wear Nike togs (she was formerly of the Puma persuasion) and she has always swung a Wilson bat, not the H-Tour preferred by Davenport & Henin-Hardenne, but a Hammer 6-point-whatever.
    22-year-old Elena has won 3 WTA singles finals in 8 finals appearances. Elena's wins, all in 2003, were at Shanghai, Bali and at Amelia Island. Elena is garbed in Yonex, and as is usually the case with those who wear Yonex, she chops with a Yonex axe, the "MP Tour-1" model. Elena is coached in part by her mother Vera (who travels with her on the tour) and, recently, by Olga Morozova (who was a singles finalist at Wimbledon in 1975).

    CBS Sportsline is now posting more AP tourney photos than Yahoo! is. Hopefully Yahoo! will soon post as many again; they provide a thumbnail view, while Sportsline only gives a text photo index.

    The NASDAQ-100 Open, at the Miami suburb of Key Biscayne, is a 2-week "mini-major", much like the previous tourney at Indian Wells.
    The singles draw was not held until Monday, March 22nd. Qualifying play also began on Monday, with main draw play beginning on Wednesday, March 24th at 10am. Unlike the previous week at Indian Wells, where matches seemed to be scheduled by whimsy, the order of play follows the common practice of playing the top half of the draw one day and the bottom half the next. The WTA singles final will be on Saturday, April 3rd, with the WTA doubles final on Sunday, April 4th.
    The 96-player main draw for Miami had 32 seeds, with all 32 receiving 1st-round byes. There were 12 qualifiers, 2 Lucky Losers, and 9 wild cards in the main draw.
    Miami time is GMT (UCT, ZULU) -5 hours (=US Eastern Time, PT +3). Miami has live scoring by points. TV coverage is on ESPN and ESPN2 (click for schedule), with the finals on April 3rd (WTA) & 4th (ATP) on CBS.

Jennifer Capriati

    Jennifer said: "We had couple close games there, so it wasn't a complete just blow-out. But I thought I played well... I feel like I was moving well, and I was hitting out on my shots pretty well. Of course it was tough, you know, because it's so windy... It's very swervy. Especially in the stadium, the wind kind of circles around. So you just got to be really moving your feet a lot and watching the ball and not get frustrated because it's not going to be there perfectly every time you want to hit it. So you have to make adjustments." interview

Serena Williams

    Serena said: "I was very nervous going out there. Then I decided that I'm just going to go out there and do the best I can... I think I'm fully fit and healthy now. I'm just out of tournament play a little bit... I could tell [Marta] was a little bit nervous. It's kind of hard to play a player that everyone has hyped up so much about the big comeback."
    About the new threads that came with her big Nike contract (she previously wore Puma), Serena said: "It's actually silk. So I have to get it dry-cleaned all the time. I have a few of them, but I have to get them dry-cleaned. I can't regularly wash them. It's a very light silk fabric. The silver part is actually very breathable and very lightweight and not hot at all... I had a lot of input into the design, which is great with working with this team. They have this vision. They give me a sketch. I'm like, 'Okay, wow, there's not much I can say because it's already so perfect.' But I told them when I first met them, I said, 'Look, I'm really into looking really good on the court. I don't have to be very comfortable. If you guys want to change it up and use different fabrics that a lot of players don't want to wear because they're really into the comfort and really into being able to perform, I am, too, definitely, but I don't have to be as comfortable as the next player' (laughing). They were so excited to hear that. But working with them, they actually found a fabric that was very comfortable and very breathable and very light, but still had this metallic look about it. So it was very exciting." interview

Nadia Petrova

    Nadia said: "I played very consistent from the beginning, and I just make a go for myself, just go for every point, every game. So I was really eager to win every point, I would say. So I was really happy in the end with the result, 6-2, 6-2. It was a bit of a difficult weather conditions, so I wanted to stay as less as possible on the court. [The high wind] did not affect me at all. I think it just maybe even did help me, because I used my serve more. And it worked very well, especially the first one. I won a lot of important points on my serve. The wind was taking off my spin shot, so it was making it more difficult for her." interview

Eleni Daniilidou

    Eleni said: "I'm very happy... it was excellent game from my side. I was fighting. I was very, very focused... I was really aggressive and I was two steps into the court. I played very good, and with my forehand, I put very much pressure to Jennifer. She didn't play her best tennis. Everyone knows it's very tough to come back after a big injury... I was moving very well... My serve still can be better, but it was a key also that I put a lot of first serves in. With the second ball, I was more aggressive. I was starting a lot from my forehand. I put a lot of pressure and tried also to move her right, left, right, left. When I had the chance, I went to the net. Her ball is very, very heavy. Sometimes it's very tough to control the point, or let's say, the game." interview

    Jennifer said: "I don't think I was just there today. Just felt like I was off. It just felt like she really couldn't miss. Just didn't play my game really. Kind of got sucked into her type of game and from the beginning, as soon as I started, I missed some easy shots. I got a bit negative after that. She got confident and just from there, I never really found my game... without playing, you lose that aggressiveness. I was not really stepping in and attacking her balls when I should have, because she was kind of hitting a lot of shots that were short. But they weren't really easy to hit. Slice. She just mixed it up. One side was hard, the forehand, and then the other side is pretty soft. On her serve she kind of would hit one soft and then one hard so [I] didn't know what to expect. But I really just didn't play my game at all." interview

#7 s1 Serena Williams RUS d #40 s31 Elena Likhovtseva RUS 6-1, 4-6, 6-3

    Serena said: "[In the 2nd set Elena] was making a lot of shots and she was really playing a lot better and running a few more balls down. Definitely I was missing way too many shots. Then I think I got a little unfocused because maybe I won [the 1st] set a little too easy. I was just a little here and there, and I wasn't mentally there." interview

    Elena said: "...second set, I think I started to play a little bit more relaxed, than the first set... I wasn't nervous, but it's tough to get rhythm with her. She was hitting good returns, and she didn't give me the rhythm. I struggled with my serve. Then the second set, I played a little bit more relaxed, and I guess she just wanted to hit winners. Then all of a sudden, she started to make a lot of unforced errors. I had chances. So second set, I won. I think I had a lot of chances in the third set as well. 40-love on my serve in the second game." interview

    Venus said: "I was hitting some really good shots. Then [Daniela] would hit one in the corner and she had me a lot on the defense. But even with that, I'm a good player on the defense because I can hit a lot of shots that are still very forcive when I'm on the defense. So I think that helped a lot. But she played good." interview

    Daniela said: "...I was enjoying myself out there tonight. Yeah, the first set I thought I played pretty well. I felt like I had the momentum the first few games. It's just a shame that I didn't get on top of [Venus] in the first set. I felt like, you know, if I would have won the first set, that things would be maybe a little different in the second. But, you know, that's why she's so good, because she just kept the pressure on and made me always hit one more ball. And all the credit to her, the way she played." interview

So from the beginning of the match I had the feeling that I'm in good shape and I have a chance to beat [Venus]. But she's a great player. She's a great fighter. So you never know until the end if you can do it or not...
    "I did have some problems with my [service] toss today. It was little windy. But like I said, if you want to be champion, it's not all about your serve, you know. You have to win no matter what. That's what I did today." interview

    Venus said: "I was okay. I definitely felt like I could play better. I definitely felt like [Elena] played some of her best tennis. That was really good for her...
    "I didn't have any room for errors today. I couldn't make mistakes. She was just playing so well... interview
