  Portoroz 2010:

    On Sunday in Portoroz, Slovenia, in the final of the Banka Koper Slovenia Open, 23-year-old #101 (and former #5) Anna Chakvetadze from Moscow, Russia, after waiting out some thunderstorms, took just after an hour to demolish 21-year-old #86 (career-high: #84) Johanna Larsson from Helsingborg, Sweden, 6-1, 6-2 (Anna is shown after the doubles final on Saturday night).

    Anna's prize is $37,000; Johanna's is $19,000.

    Anna said: "This was my ninth final and Johanna's first, so I don't think she was as comfortable as me today. I was very concentrated and didn't give her many free points, so I'm very happy with my performance." WTA story

    Johanna said: "Anna played really well today. I did everything I could... It was my first final and I'm happy with how things went here. If I was told a month ago I'd have these results, I wouldn't believe it."

    Anna and Johanna, too, had never played each other in WTA singles before.

    Anna is now 8-1 in WTA singles finals; she won her first seven, then lost to Caro Wozniacki in the 2008 New Haven final and had been in a deep slump most of the time since then. Now it appears that she may be regaining her old form. Anna has a 17-13 match record in 2010.

    Johanna was playing in her first WTA singles final, so despite the loss, this was the best week of her career. She has won 11 ITF singles titles and 14 ITF doubles titles. Including ITF play, Johanna's singles match record this year is 36-12.
