9th WTA singles title
2nd WTA doubles title

    Still Champion of All the Russians: On Sunday in Moscow in the final of the Kremlin Cup, last year's champ, locally-born-and-residing 23-year-old 3rd-seeded # 4 Anastasia Myskina, made it two in a row by defeating one of her training partners at Moscow's Spartak Club, just-turned-23-years-old 5th-seeded # 6 Elena Dementieva, 7-5, 6-0.

    Anastasia trailed 3-5 in the 1st set, then settled down and won 10 straight games to finish the match. Anastasia said: "It was very hard to hold my nerves in the beginning. But later, I was able to calm down and played my average tennis... It's great to win at home. I was seriously motivated to win today to prove my home fans that I deserved my high rankings." story

    Elena said: "I missed my chance when 5-3 up on my serve [in the first set], I should have risked it and put pressure on her, but I played passive and Nastya [short for Anastasia] was able to overturn that scoring... It was important today to win the first set because all was to be decided in it. In the second set, she found her game and I couldn't resist."
    Elena said she would continue to work to improve her game, and win more finals. Elena said: "I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to overcome my nerves [and] my poor serve." story

    Anastasia also won the Kremlin Cup doubles, teamed with fellow Muskovite Vera Zvonareva. With a combined doubles ranking of 47, they defeated the top 2 doubles players in the WTA, Paola Suarez & Virginia Ruano Pascual (combined doubled ranking: 3), 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. It was Anastasia's 2nd WTA doubles title; both have been against very tough opposition (last time, in Bali, Anastasia & doubles expert Ai Sugiyama defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova & Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario). It was Vera's 1st doubles title, and in a very nice place for a Moscow girl to win.

    Anastasia now leads Elena 6-4 in career matches, also winning the last time she played Elena, in the French Open final at Roland Garros, 6-1, 6-2.
    Born in Moscow on July 8, 1981, Anastasia Myskina still picks up her mail there. She has now won 9 of the 14 WTA singles finals she has played in, including this year's French Open. Anastasia once wore Puma togs, but last year she became "Property of Nike," and she chops with a Head axe. She is coached by Jens Gerlach, who reportedly was once but is no longer her significant male other as well. She has also worked with Dutchman Robert Lansdorp, who coaches Maria Sharapova. Strong off both wings, Anastasia says she thinks her backhand is stronger. Her mobility is excellent, she observes and reacts to her opponents very well, and although she doesn't appear to be walloping the ball as much as some other players, it still leaves her racquet with plenty of pace on it at times. Although Anastasia's serve is not particularly powerful, she gets it in with something on it fairly consistently.

    Elena Dementieva was also born in Moscow, on October 15, 1981, and also still "resides" there during her few weeks a year off of the WTA Tour. Elena has won 4 of her 12 WTA singles finals; winning 2 weeks ago in Hasselt and last year at Amelia Island, Bali, and Shanghai. Elena reached the US Open and French Open final this year, losing to compatriots both times. Elena's garb and her bat are both labeled "Yonex". Elena formerly used their "MP Tour-1" model racket, but she now uses the more recent vintage "RDX 500". Elena's mother Vera travels with her on the tour, and so does former Russian great Olga Morozova, her current coach, obviously providing Elena with an ontour environment somewhat different from Anastasia's. Also unlike Anastasia, Elena really slugs the ball, wallops it both from the forehand and backhand side. She prefers her forehand; says Elena: "I really like to be aggressive on my forehand side.". Her mobility is good, but her serve really lets her down. Her toss is ungainly, her first serve is unreliable and her 2nd generally weak, and she frequently double faults. But not so frequently as to stop her from winning a whole lot.

    The main draw for Moscow had 8 seeds, with 4 1st-round byes. There were 4 qualifiers and 2 wild cards in the main draw.
    The time in Moscow is UCT (GMT, Zulu, Greenwich...) plus 4 hours. That is US Eastern Daylight Time +8 hours, =PDT +11 hours.

    In the Tashkent final on Sunday, 15-year-old # 174 Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic (residing in Florida at the Bollettieri Academy) defeated 21-year-old # 83 Virginie Razzano of France 5-7, 6-3, 6-2. Nicole is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals having won her 1st in Vancouver earlier this year; Virginie has 4 ITF titles, but was playing in her 1st WTA singles final.

    Nicole said: "I was a bit nervous, felt stiff, in the beginning. I wasn't moving well. [Virginie] played very well, moved and served well at points, but in the end I overpowered her." story

    Virginie said: "I played my game and I tried to win every point but [Nicole] is tough. I moved her around in the first set but she kept hitting the lines all the time. She had good concentration and she was very strong mentally."

    The main draw for Tashkent had 8 seeds, with NO 1st-round byes. There were 4 qualifiers, 3 Lucky Losers (the highest ranked player to lose in qualifying), and 2 wild cards in the main draw.
    The time in Tashkent is UCT (GMT, Zulu, Greenwich...) plus 5 hours. That is US Eastern Daylight Time +9 hours, =PDT +12 hours.

    The win gave Lindsay the points she needed to be assured of the # 1 ranking next week, overtaking current # 1 Amelie Mauresmo, who was seeded first at this tourney but could not play due to a leg injury. This is the 5th trip to the top for Lindsay, who reached # 1 in 1998, 1999, 2000, & 2002.

    Lindsay said: "I'm amazed that I was able to get back to No. 1 after a tough couple of years... I'm excited. But I'd like to be able to keep on going and win the tournament as a new No. 1 and not be completely satisfied just by winning today's match." story
    About today's match, Lindsay said: "Conditions here are much different than last week in Germany and it took me a number of games to feel comfortable on the court. In the beginning I made a lot of errors but got better as the match went on and was able to end the match better then I started."

    Dinara said: "I served badly today and when you serve this way against such opponents they start to press you. [Lindsay] served hard. She fired three aces in a game--I couldn't even see where she was serving."

Anastasia Myskina

    It was Anastasia's first victory ever over Lindsay, and it ended a streak of 7 matches in which Anastasia had lost the 1st set. Although she lost the match, Lindsay will take over the # 1 ranking on Monday due to points she had earned in earlier round victories.
    Anastasia said: "I desperately wanted to win today. It helped me a lot that Lindsay was feeling ill, while I have just recovered from a fever. The surface is also rather slow which is better for me as Lindsay doesn't like long rallies." story

    Lindsay said: "I wanted to keep the points short today as I wasn't feeling well. I made too many errors at the wrong time as I had to go for the big shots because I knew I couldn't stay very long on the court today. I had a hard time with my chest and with my head... I tried to make good shots early in the rally and it didn't work out... [Anastasia] was running very well and getting a lot of balls back." story

    Iroda said: "I was very tired after my first-round effort. I didn't have the power like I had then. I made far too many mistakes throughout."
    Iroda also said that now that she is back from injury, she will play fewer tourneys than the 25 a year she was playing before she was hurt. Iroda said: "I will play for my pleasure and earn some money. I am professional tennis player after all... I am in a good shape, and my new coach Dmitriy Tomashevic helps me a lot." story

    Evgenia said: "I didn't expect [Olga] to play so well, especially in the third set. Maybe she just relaxed and played without pressure. I did everything I could, but then that's sport."
