    On Sunday in Cincinnati, in the final of the W&S Financial Open, former WTA # 9, 21-year-old # 52 Vera Zvonareva from Moscow, Russia, defeated 4th-seeded # 26 Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia (who recently moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where, like Monaco, there is no personal income tax), 6-2, 6-4 (Katarina is shown in the only photo available of her hitting a ball during the match, sorry, Katarina, Vera is shown after match point).
    Vera said: I was fighting for every point. It was a long time since I last played [Katarina], and I didn't know what to expect so I just figured it out on the court. I had a few less errors than her too so that helped... No matter what the scores were, you always feel under pressure. The match can turn at any time." WTA story
    Katarina said: "[Vera has] been playing unbelievably since Birmingham. But I won the most games in one set from her this week, 6-4, so I'm happy about that. We play in the first round next week in Stanford, so I hope to get revenge then."

    The win raised Vera's WTA singles ranking to # 37. It was Vera's 5th WTA singles title and her 2nd this year; she is now 5-4 in WTA singles finals. Two of Vera's earlier titles came in not-so-far-away Memphis, Tennessee, maybe its something about soil in that part of the world. Vera also won the title in Birmingham in June; if she can keep winning one title a month she'll be back in the top 10 in no time.
    Vera now leads Katarina 2-0 in career matches. Katarina is now 4-4 in WTA singles finals, but reaching the final raised her rank to # 21, the highest ranking of her career.

    The Palermo final on Sunday, 2005, 2004, and 2001 Palermo champion, 2nd-seeded 23-year-old # 24 Anabel Medina Garrigues from Valencia, Spain, added 2006 to her list of Palermo domination by defeating 29-year-old wild card # 56 Tathiana Garbin from Mestre, Italy, 6-4, 6-4.
    Anabel said: "I am really happy with this victory. I played a good game today and I did well, particularly at the important moments, not to allow my opponent back into the game." AP story
    Anabel now leads Tathiana 4-1 in career matches; their last match, in the 1st round of this year's Paris Indoor, was a close 3-setter, which Anabel won 6-3, 1-6, 7-5. Anabel is now 6-2 in WTA singles finals; Tathiana is 1-3.

    Cincinnati: The main draw for Cincinnati has 8 seeds, with 2 1st-round byes. There are 4 qualifiers and 3 wild cards in the main draw. Qualifying finals are on Monday.
    Cincinnati (daylight savings) time is GMT (UCT, ZULU) minus 4 hours. That is Eastern Daylight Time in the US, =PDT +3 hours. There is no live scoring.
    The Cincinnati tourney is a wee bit odd, inasmuch as 30 ladies (+ qualifiers) play for $175,000, and a few weeks later 64 men (+ qualifiers) play at the same place, in a tourney run by the same folks, for $2,450,000.
    The men are paid, on average, over 7 times as much per person as the ladies. This rarely is mentioned, which is strange considering the ruckus over equal pay at Wimbledon, where the discrepency is much smaller. Apparently everyone ignores this because the tourneys are not simultaneous.

Early round play at Palermo begins  at 3&4pm local time.
Cincinnati time is the same as EDT.

    Palermo: The main draw for Palermo has 8 seeds, with NO 1st-round byes. There are 4 qualifiers and 3 wild cards in the main draw.

    Palermo (daylight savings) time is GMT (UCT, ZULU) + 2 hours (US Pacific Daylight Time +9, EDT +6).

Patty driving a backhand

    Patty said: "The way I got out of this tough situation gives me a lot of confidence. It is a great feeling coming back from 4-1 down, playing some good tennis too. I just kept fighting. I knew that I was still in the match. At the end it was really close. Once it comes to the big points, you just play; you cannot really explain how you come through these tough moments...
    "It takes me a little while to adapt, but I like the heat and the hardcourt game. I try to change my serve a little bit, flatten out my backhand a little more; I like the high bounce on my forehand, so that works well. I'm sure I can step it up in the next match."

Anastasia and Serena chasing forehands

    It was Serena's first match since she lost to Daniela Hantuchova in the 3rd round of the Australian Open in January. Since then, Serena has been sidelined by the knee and ankle injuries which have troubled her for over a year and a half.
    Serena said: "I probably caught her by surprise... my unforced errors were much lower than usual. Anastasia often plays really well, so going into the match I knew my errors had to be very low. There's definitely some rust, but mentally I did better than expected." WTA story

    As the 2nd seed, Anastasia should have played a much easier opponent in the 1st round, but Serena's unusually low rank permitted the odd draw-- and Anastasia often scores love in the luck department.

    Anastasia said: "Serena played great. She stepped forward and just attacked. I was down the whole match; it was going by so quickly and I was under a lot of pressure. I didn't play my best, but it was tough... It's hard to play so comfortably after six months off, but she did that."

    Serena said: "Bethanie was playing really well. Both players I've played so far have been competitive and tough... I've been doing a lot of off-court work; hopefully it'll pay off, because I hate it. I feel fine. I'm moving faster, but I can still get quicker. Obviously, winning these matches is one of the right steps in my comeback."
    About Bethanie's togs, which featured knee-high green socks, Serena said: "I thought it was cute. I've worn knee-high socks before, at the French Open. I've always been for people who are different, and who use different motifs. I liked the socks and the skirt too."
    About her quarterfinal opponent, 33-year-old # 58 Amy Frazier, Serena said: "I tell you what, she's no pushover. She's been playing since I was really young, and she still looks and plays like she's really young. She's so steady. It's gonna be a tough match."

No matter where she is in her career, she's always going to be such a tough opponent; obviously right now she's playing really well. The problem when you play someone like her, you don't have any room to change things up."

    Serena said: "It feels good. I've come this far, I don't want it to end now. I'm definitely getting better. I just need to keep moving forward with my game."

    Patty said: "It was [Katarina's] day today. She was playing really well; her serve was on, she attacked everything, and played a perfect match. I played okay too, and I was fighting the whole time, but I didn't make the best decisions at key moments. Also, I felt a little lucky even winning the first set. I never felt safe. That's just the way it goes sometimes."
    Patty also said: "I give a lot of credit to Katarina. Some people underestimate her, but we all really know how much she has been improving all these years. She's at her best now and is still improving." Patty's Cincinnati Player's Blog

    Serena said: I made about a thousand unforced errors. I kept fighting, but I couldn't get them in. I think I was aiming at the ball kids and the umpire, when I should've been aiming at the court. I expected to at least be here on Sunday; but I guess Vera was also expecting to be here on Sunday."

    6' 2" WTA veteran Brenda Schultz-McCarthy of the Netherlands reclaimed the all-time women's service speed record on Saturday. During her loss to Julie Cohen in the 1st round of qualifying, Brenda unleashed a serve clocked at 130 miles per hour. The previous record had been a 127 mph serve by Venus Williams in 1998.

    Brenda, a holder of 7 WTA singles titles who retired in 1999 due to back trouble, has been attempting a comeback this year-- at the age of 35.

    Brenda said: "This is great, it's very exciting. It was difficult to hear people say I used to have the fastest serve, or that I'm the second-fastest ever; this is definitely something I wanted to do in my comeback." WTA story
