    On Sunday at Bali, Indonesia, in the final of the Tournament of Champions, the 2010 champion in Bali and Linz (and 2008 French Open champ), 24 years old today wild card #26 (and former #1) Ana Ivanovic of Serbia (residence: Basel, SUI), celebrated her 24th birthday by winning the Bali title again, defeating this year's champ in Palermo and Estoril, 29 year old #28 (career high #16) Anabel Medina Garrigues from Valencia, Spain, 6-3, 6-0 (Anabel is shown during the match; Ana in a traditional Balinese dress with the hardware afterward).

    Ana's prize is $210,000; Anabel's is $120,000.

    Ana said: "I felt like I didn't do much wrong. It was a great match for me. Anabel and I practiced together all week, so it was nice we got a chance to play each other on the last day of the tournament." WTA story - tourney story

    Anabel said: "Congratulations to Ana. She was playing so well, I couldn't do anything today. She has been No.1 in the world and she's a very good player, and I'm really happy with my week, but she was too good on the court today."

    Ana now leads Anabel 3-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2009 on red clay in the 2nd week of Fed Cup play, when Ana defeated Anabel 3-6, 6-1, 6-2.

    2008 French Open champion Ana is now 11-4 in WTA singles finals; she also won the big Indian Wells title in 2008, and reached the finals at Roland Garros in 2007 and at the Australian Open in 2008. Ana finishes 2011 with a 32-20 match record.

    Anabel is now 11-7 in WTA singles finals. Although she once said she prefers hardcourts, 10 of Anabel's 11 titles have come on red clay, including five in Palermo and three in Strasbourg. Anabel had a 41-22 singles match record this season.

*n28 Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP d n9 s1 Marion Bartoli FRA 4-6, 7-6(7), 1-0 retired—right ankle injury Fri

Anabel following a backhand, Marion chasing a forehand, and in pain as the trainer checks her injured right ankle

    Marion's injury occurred during the 2nd set tiebreaker, in which she held match points, but could not convert them. Marion said: "On one of Anabel's drop shots in the second set breaker, I felt like my ankle got blocked and my whole body went forward on it. It hurt a few seconds after. When I got to match point I struggled to put any weight on it, then I double faulted, and everything fell apart from there. But even if I won match point I don't think I would have been able to play tomorrow."

    Anabel said: "We were playing a very good match. It was about two and a half hours for just two sets... It was a little sad to finish like that. I feel bad for Marion. Hopefully with holidays now she can recover and be better soon."

*n31 Nadia Petrova RUS d n16 s2 wc Shuai Peng CHN 6-4, 6-3 Thu

Nadia and Shuai ready to swat forehands

    Nadia said: "It was a little up and down from my side. I would take the lead then lose the lead. I had difficulty with my serve. I had something going on with my upper back, but adrenaline kicked in and I didn't think about it too much. Thankfully I won the first set, which is very important against [Shuai]. In the second set I got the lead then lost it again, but closed it out."

    Shuai has been sidelined recently by a hip injury. Shuai said: "I couldn’t really practise, because I had the injury which bothered me for a couple of months. So I couldn’t really control the timing well. Sometimes I could, and sometimes I made a mistake. And today I don’t think I served very well."

n18 s3 Sabine Lisicki GER d n23 Daniela Hantuchova SVK 7-5, 6-2 Fri

Daniela driving a forehand, and Sabine about to swat a backhand

    Sabine said: "I hadn't played a lot of matches in the last few weeks, and not everything was going my way, but I kept fighting. Daniela and I always have long, good rallies. At the end of the day I made the important points and that's what counts—to come out on top in such a good match is really nice."

    Shortly after the matches were completed and most spectators had left, Bali was struck by a 5.1 magnitude earthquake, centered 37.9 mi ESE of Denpasar. earthquake details - map showing epicenter

    Daniela Hantuchova was about to hold her postmatch press interview when the earthquake shook the area, and everyone moved outside. Daniela said: "I’ve never done a press conference like this before. It was quite frightening, but we seem to be okay."

    About her semifinal opponent, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Sabine said: "I've never played Anabel before, so I'll have to see how the first couple of games go. Obviously I'm going to go in playing my game and fighting for every point, but I'll also have to see how she is playing."

*n26 wc Ana Ivanovic SRB d n22 s4 Roberta Vinci ITA 6-3, 6-3 Thu

Roberta serving, and Ana following a forehand

    Ana said: "Roberta has been playing great. We've had a lot of tough matches in the past—even when I won in the past, it was always a close match. Today I thought I was very aggressive and played really well."

    Ana won despite twisting her right ankle early in the 2nd set. Ana said: "It was a bit sore, but actually when I was moving it was feeling better. So I tried to keep my breaks quite short and walked up the other end to keep it moving...

    "It’s sore when I put weight on it but I’ve been to the physio and hopefully it will be fine. We’re trying the best with ice and compression and to keep my foot elevated."

*n28 Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP d n18 s3 Sabine Lisicki GER 6-3, 4-6, 4-0 retired—mid back injury

Sabine about to swat a forehand, Anabel following a backhand, and Sabine telling Anabel she cannot continue

    Anabel also advanced by retirement in her previous match, when Marion Bartoli injured her right ankle. Anabel said: "I didn't have too many retirements in my career and now I have two in a row. I feel bad for Sabine. At the end of the second set she was feeling bad but still won the set, but in the beginning of the third it looked pretty bad."

n26 wc Ana Ivanovic SRB d n31 Nadia Petrova RUS 6-1, 7-5

Ana serving, Nadia driving a backhand, and Ana following one

    Ana said: "At 6-1, 2-0, I felt [Nadia] really raised her game. She started to serve bigger, go for her shots and make less errors, and when I didn't break her in that game I think it was a little bit of a turning point. Then I played a loose game to lose my serve, and it was 2-all, even again. But I'm happy I was able to refocus and regroup and close the match out in two sets."

    Nadia said: "Ana played really well at the beginning. It didn't matter what I was doing, she was coming up with unbelievable winners. In the second set I started moving her around and giving her a harder time, and I had chances to win that second set."
