Indian Wells:

#3 Agnieszka Radwanska
5'7" 139lb RH 2H-BH
Indian Wells:

#21 Flavia Pennetta
5'7¾" 128lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday at Indian Wells, in the final of the 2014 BNP Paribas Open, the 2010 champion at Marbella, 32 year old 20th seeded #21 (career high: #10) Flavia Pennetta of Italy (residence: Verbier, Switzerland), won the biggest title of her career by defeating the 2013 champ at Seoul, Sydney and Auckland, 24 year old 2nd seeded #3 (career high: #2) Agnieszka Radwanska from Krakow, Poland, 6-2, 6-1 (Agnieszka is shown during the match; Flavia is shown with the glassware afterward).

    Flavia struck 20 winners (3 aces) with 29 unforced errors (zero double faults); Agnieszka hit only 10 winners (1 ace) with 29 UEs (4 DFs). Flavia's prize is $1,000,000; Aga's prize is $500,000.

    It is Flavia's first WTA singles title since 2010. She was sidelined for six months in 2012-2013 by a right wrist injury and surgery, and the slow climb up the rankings when she returned to play caused her to consider retiring from pro tennis.

    Flavia said: "Last year at this tournament I was thinking 'I cannot be here anymore.' And this year I am here with the trophy...

    "I'm happy. Really happy. I think I need a few days to realize this... After so many years and so much work and everything, this is the moment I was waiting for. And it comes when you least expect it. In the beginning of the tournament I never expected to be the champion, or even be in the final or semifinal. I was just here trying to play my best tennis. For me, this is something I was waiting for a long time." WTA story

    Agnieszka was slowed by a left knee injury, and at the award ceremony tearfully apologized to the crowd for her inability to run during the match.

    Agnieszka said: "[The injury] actually happened a few days ago, but I didn't expect it was going to be much worse today. I really tried everything I could to push myself and play 100% today, because this is the final, but unfortunately I was in too much pain. It's just the worst thing for a player to not be able to give 100% in the final of a big event...

    "It was still a good two weeks for me. My first final here, a big event, and still a good result... Of course I will have a lot of treatment and do everything to be ready for Miami."

    Agnieszka still leads Flavia 4-3 in career matches. Their previous meeting was earlier this year on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 2nd round at Dubai, when Flavia defeated Agnieszka 6-4, 6-1.

    Flavia is now 10-13 in WTA singles finals, with a 15-3 singles match record this year.

    Agnieszka is now 13-6 in WTA singles finals; she has not yet won a title this year. Agnieszka has a 15-5 singles match record in 2014.

Na driving a backhand

    Na said: "I'm happy with the result today, but I still feel I have so many things I can improve. This was my first match since Doha three weeks ago, and I probably won't be 100% for my first match back. But I was happy I could at least learn some things from today's match." WTA story

n3 s2 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n131 q Heather Watson GBR 6-4, 6-3 Fri

Aga driving a forehand

    Agnieszka said: "I'm just very happy I could play quite well today and win in two sets. Today was very windy and we were both struggling with the serve, so I'm happy I could make it through today." WTA story

    Heather dropped to 0-3 against Agnieszka. Heather said: "I felt [Aga] played better at the right times today. But I was right there with her. It was a lot different compared to the other times I played her. I felt I was right in there and had my chances, even though I didn't feel like I played that well. It was actually quite windy on the center court, and it was blowing one way, and I struggled with my serve a bit. But I still feel like I could have come through and won that first set. I shouldn't have given away that many free points there. But I'm a lot more positive about this time than the last few times I played her."

*n64 Lauren Davis USA d n4 s3 Victoria Azarenka BLR 6-0, 7-6(2) Fri

Lauren's forehand drive

    It was Victoria's first match after six weeks' layoff due to a bone bruise in her right foot, and she was visibly in pain throughout the match.

    Victoria said: "I wanted to give my best shot. It was maybe a little bit too early, but I gave a fight... I think it's pretty good considering what I've been through. It's something you have to go through after injuries. I just need to see what's best for me now for Miami. Right now I just want to feel pain free. It's not the most fun to be out there like that." WTA story

    Lauren said: "It means so much to me. My first top 10 win... I know [Vika] hasn't played a tournament in about six weeks, so that gave me more confidence, that I've played more matches than she has. I commend her for playing through it though, for sure. I respect her a lot."

    Caroline said: "I knew it wasn't going to be an easy match today because I have had tough matches against [Bojana] in the past. I started out well. I played aggressively. I knew what I was supposed to do out there. She changed her tactics a bit in the second set and didn't really give me too many angles to play with, and I got a bit tighter at the end, but I was happy I could close it off."

    Na won despite striking 9 double faults. Na said: "At least I could win the last point and stay in the tournament. If you're a tennis player, you'll make double faults. At least I can improve my serve even more from here. I'll talk to Carlos [Rodriguez, Na's coach] after this, because I didn't get a chance to talk to him yet, we didn't have time to see each other. We will definitely talk about the serve and what I'm doing, and what we can improve moving forward." WTA story

    Camila said: "It was a really good match. It wasn't too consistent, but it was great anyway. I just tried to play my game and keep going, and even if I missed, I still played my game. I didn't change. I think I was just playing more aggressive than [Maria] at the end, and that was really important." WTA story

    Maria said: "[Camila is] someone that doesn't give you much rhythm. She's quite aggressive... If she can play like that on a consistent basis, she will be a good player...
    "If I'm speaking about my level, it was nowhere near where it should have been." AP story

n7 s6 Simona Halep ROU d n28 s26 Lucie Safarova CZE 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 Sun

    Earlier this week, Simona said: "I think my game is complete. I can play well with both sides. I don't serve really well, but I keep working on that. And I move well, so I stay close to the baseline. I think I'm playing beautiful tennis. Maybe it's because I'm very relaxed on the court now, and that's the secret to winning a lot of tournaments. I just want to keep going like this. It's the right way...
    "My manager is actually Virginia Ruzici. She tells me about her experiences all the time and helps me deal with pressure. There's going to be more pressure on me now, so it's good to speak with someone who knows about it. She's not here, but I speak with her every day. She'll be in Miami [at the Sony Open next week]."

Caro about to slice a backhand

    Caroline said: "Playing [Yaroslava] is always tricky, especially here because the ball bounces so high. Her serves were bouncing way over my head and I had a really tough time getting into the rhythm at the start of the match. I managed to fight through and win that first set. I'm not sure how, I guess my running really got me through that. And then I started playing some pretty good tennis in the third. But before the third set it was really just a battle and a scramble out there today."

Simona's backhand drive

    Simona said: "I knew [Genie is] a great player and playing really well, so I just tried to do my game, play aggressive and play fast. It wasn't my best tennis today, but I was fighting a lot. I did well. I think I came back in the third set really well. I did everything I could do during the match today. She's improving tournament by tournament so I'm really happy that I won this match." WTA story

    Genie said: "[Simona] was very, very solid. I expected a good player, but I think she has a really good defense. That's a weapon of hers. It really puts pressure on her opponents to finish the point. She has a lot of experience too. She's won a lot of titles and has been there in that third set battling. She was a break down and came up with some great tennis. She played very well."

n8 s7 Jelena Jankovic SR/B d n11 s10 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 6-3, 6-1

Jelena driving a backhand, and hitting balls to the crowd after match point

    Jelena defeated Caroline in the 2010 Indian Wells final, but lost to Caro every time they met since then—until today.

    Jelena said: "I lost to [Caroline] the last I don't know how many times [five matches], but right now I'm playing some pretty good tennis. I went on court trying to wait for my chances.
    "Against her, if you go for too much, you just make so many errors and beat yourself. It happened to me a lot of times in the past. So I just tried to play solid and aggressive at the same time, waited for the right shots, and then executed. I just didn't let her play how she plays. That was very important in the match today."

    Dominika said: "My serve was just not there. Maybe I tried to go for too much. [Na's] serve was much better than mine."

Sloane and Flavia watching their serves fly

    Gusty winds affected play. Flavia said: "We didn't play our best tennis. Maybe in the beginning we played much better, and in the second [set], but the third was a disaster for both of us.
    "I'm happy to get through this match, but I don't have good feelings right now. It's just crazy outside, the wind is just coming out of nowhere. But on the other hand I'm happy because I was 3-0 down in the third and fought until the last point." WTA story

    Flavia will play Na Li in the semis on Friday. Flavia lost to Na in this year's Australian Open quarterfinals. Flavia said: "[Na] started amazing in Australia. The match was completely in one direction, and I didn't have any chances at all. But I hope to have a little bit of a chance tomorrow."

    Flavia had lost to Na at this year's Australian Open. Flavia said: "I think we played really good tennis tonight. In Australia I didn't have any chance against [Na], but tonight I played much better. I just fought and tried my best. Of course I'm happy." WTA story

    Na said: "It's not bad. It's not like I lost my first match. At least I had a few matches in Indian Wells, and making the semifinals isn't bad, and it's not like I lost to a bad player. [Flavia] was playing really well."

    About playing Agnieszka Radwanska in the final, Flavia said: "I have to be really aggressive. I have to go for winners. But I can't rush too much, because [Agnieszka is] a wall. I have to make seven times the winners against her. But I played really well against her in Dubai, so I hope to play the same way this time."

Simona and Agnieszka following forehands, and Aga after match point

    Agnieszka said: "I played [Simona] a couple of weeks ago, so I kind of knew how she's playing. Sbviously she had really great results for the last couple months. First of all, she's a very solid player. A lot of things come back and she's really playing deep balls.

    "What I was trying to do today was play aggressive from the beginning of the match and really just try to go for my shots. I was lucky... Of course I think I was serving better than other days, so that helped today." WTA story

    Despite the loss, Simona has earned enough points to rise to #5 in Monday's WTA singles rankings, making her the highest ranked Romanian player in history.

    Simona said: "[Agnieszka] played really well. She deserved to win today. Every ball was in for her, and I had to run a lot. I think I started the match a bit too soft. I was not ready to play. But she was playing great, and she's a great player. Her game is very difficult for me. It's always difficult to play her. She was just better than me today. For sure she will do great in the final on Sunday."

    (Dec 23, 2009) Larry Ellison, the CEO of software manufacturer Oracle, has purchased the entire Indian Wells Tennis Garden Venue, and the rights to the annual WTA/ATP Indian Wells tournament. The previous owners were a group which included Charlie Pasarell and Raymond Moore (whose company, PM Sports Management, will continue to manage the tourney), George Mackin and Bob Miller of Tennis magazine, the United States Tennis Association, and former players Pete Sampras, Chris Evert and Billie Jean King. As of this writing, the tourney's principal sponsor will remain European financial giant BNP Paribas. KESQ story - Reuters story
