#75 Coco Vandeweghe
6'1" 155lb RH 2H-BH

#42 Madison Keys
5' 10" 145lb RH 2H-BH

    On Saturday at Eastbourne, England, in the final of the AEGON International, 19 year old #42 (career high: #36) Madison Keys from Boca Raton, Florida, won her first WTA title by defeating the 2013 Linz champion (and 2012 Eastbourne finalist), 26 year old 5th seeded #9 (career high: #5) Angelique Kerber from Kiel, Germany, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 (photo shown).

    Madison's prize is $120,000; Angelique's prize is $64,000.

    Madison said: "It's absolutely incredible to be able to win this tournament with so many other greats. Hopefully there's plenty more to come. I was just trying to stay calm and not overthink it... Even right now my hands are still shaking. I'm just really excited." AP story

    Madison struck 17 aces in the match; her fastest serve was at 126 miles per hour, top speed in the WTA this year.

    Angelique said: "It's not easy when somebody is serving like she did the whole match, but I was trying, and I think I had some good returns, but it was tough to battle. Like I said before the match, she is really dangerous. She's young and she has a great talent, so she'll be dangerous in the future." WTA story

    Angie still leads Madison 2-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was early this year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the semifinals at Sydney, when Angelique defeated Madison 6-4, 6-2.

    Madison was playing in her first WTA singles final. She has won 3 ITF singles titles. Madison has a 22-14 singles match record this year.

    Angelique is now 3-8 in WTA singles finals; all of her titles were won indoors. Angelique has a 30-14 singles match record in 2014.

    On Saturday at 's-Hertogenbosh (aka Den Bosch or Rosmalen), Netherlands, in the final of the Topshelf Open, the 2012 Stanford finalist, 22 year old qualifier #75 (career high: #75) Coco Vandeweghe from Rancho Santa Fe, California, won her first WTA title by defeating the 2011 Auckland champ, 30 year old #90 (career high: #15) Jie Zheng from Chengdu, Sichuan, China, 6-2, 6-4 (photo shown).

    Coco's prize is $43,000; Jie's prize is $19,400.

    Coco said: "I was trying not to think about it being a final today. I got the first set and I thought to myself, 'One set to the good, one more to go, try and get the early break now and keep the pressure on her.' I was really just thinking about it step by step, just like how I would play in any match." WTA story

    Coco is now 1-1 in WTA singles finals. She has a 17-12 singles match record this year.

    Jie is now 4-3 in WTA singles finals (and has also won 15 WTA doubles titles). She has a 11-11 singles match record for the season.

from Hard Courts by John Feinstein (page 297):

    The women have played a Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Eastbourne since the nineteenth century, after all these years still playing at the same site, Devonshire Park.

    Eastbourne is two hours southeast of London, an easy train ride or a harrowing drive along narrow country roads. It sits on the English Channel and is the English version of St. Petersburg [Florida], a small resort town where a substantial part of the population is over the age of seventy.
    Devonshire Park is a two-hundred-yard walk from the beach, a veritable melting pot of the tennis world. The old is very much in evidence: the north stand, which was built in 1881, is often filled with septuagenarians who have been coming here for as long as anyone can remember. Towering oak trees rise up behind the north stand and sea gulls often swoop by noisily, distracting the players.
    Two things make Eastbourne different than other tournaments. First, it is a six-day tournament, ending Saturday...

    The second thing that makes Eastbourne unique is the player party. Every tennis tournament in the world has a player party. On the women's tour, WTA public relations and marketing people as well as their counterparts at Kraft and Virginia Slims usually spend the first few days at each tournament trying to round up players to come to the party. For the players, one more party with one more group of sponsors telling them how wonderful they are is boring, a time-waster. They understand they have to do their share to keep these people happy, but they don't enjoy it very much.
    Eastbourne is different because of the talent show. The players--even Navratilova--show up because they expect the show to be funny. The person most responsible for making it funny every year is Elsie Burgin, director, writer, and star.
    This year's [1990's] show was built around a mock game show...

    ...Most of this was very inside humor. If you weren't part of the women's tour in some way, the jokes meant little. [Sophie] Amiach broke the crowd up with her Stefano Capriati imitation: "I deserve the credit," she said. "I produce the child. I teach the child. I coach the child. I am the star." To his credit, Stefano Capriati laughed as hard as anyone...
