    On Sunday at Indian Wells, in the final of the 2015 BNP Paribas Open, the 2015 champion at Dubai and Shenzhen (and 2014 champ at Doha & Bucharest), 23 year old 3rd seeded #3 (career high: #2) Simona Halep from Constanta, Romania, won her 11th WTA singles title by defeating the 2010 Indian Wells champion, 30 year old 18th seeded #21 (and former #1) Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (residence: Dubai, United Arab Emirates), 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 (photo shown).

    It is the biggest title of Simona's career. Simona's prize is $900,400; Jelena's prize is $439,420.

    Simona said: "First of all I want to congratulate Jelena. You were amazing. Well done for a great two weeks here. You did a great job, and it was an amazing final. I'm really happy I could win today. This is my biggest title and I'll never forget it." WTA story

    Simona now leads JJ 4-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was early last year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the 4th round of the Australian Open, when Simona defeated Jelena 6-6, 2-6, 6-0.

    Simona is now 11-6 in WTA singles finals, and has a 21-2 singles match record in 2015.

    Jelena is now 13-19 in WTA singles finals, and has a 8-4 singles match record this year.

Serena serving

    Monica plays a game of varied spins. Serena said: "[Monica] was interesting. I just never got the same ball. I just wasn't able to get my rhythm today. I'm just glad to get through that match. It was definitely a super tricky one for me. I just said, 'You're not going to lose this match. You have to figure out a way to win it." WTA story

    It was Serena's first match at Indian Wells since 2001 due to a controversy that year which might be best described in this ESPN article.

Simona driving a backhand

    Simona said: "It was my first time playing against [Daria], and I didn't know how she was playing, and I went on court very nervous and my forehand wasn't working well. She plays really tough. She runs a lot and she's a good defender. I just had to relax and do everything I could to win every point. Sometimes you just have to try your best and just try and get through the match."

I just kept fighting and just kept running those drop shots down, and eventually I think I won the most important ones today."

n6 s5 Ana Ivanovic SRB d n110 q Yulia Putintseva KAZ 6-3, 6-1 Sat

Ana's backhand drive

    Ana said: "It was a very tough match. It's tough to play someone you've never played before, and obviously she had a few matches under her belt already. But I really tried to work hard on each point, find my rhythm early and put pressure on her, and I think I did that well, so I was very pleased." WTA story

Vika and Maria serving

    Vika said: "I think she played well... She was just more consistent than I was in the important moments. I created too many opportunities not to take them, and you just cannot afford to do that against a player like Maria."

*n37 s31 Belinda Bencic SUI d n5 s4 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 6-4, 6-4 Mon

Belinda's forehand drive

    Caroline had double-bageled Belinda in their only previous encounter. Belinda said: "The difference was that I won a game! No, I was really happy after the first game I won, obviously, but I think I played more solid today. In Istanbul I had maybe too much respect and I was afraid, nervous. Today I really had a good game plan. I did what I had to do out there. I served well and had some easy points on my serve because of that. It was a solid match." WTA story

    Caroline said: "Honestly, it was two completely different matches. She was steady, she took the ball early and she served well, but I just didn't put three balls in play today. But hats off to her. She took advantage of that and she played well during the important points in the match today."

Heather firing a forehand on the fly

    Heather said: "The match was a little bit up and down, but I knew [Agnieszka] was going to try and step up her game and maybe play more aggressive or something different, and that's what she did. So I just kept my head and stuck to my own game plan. I knew I would have to play extremely well today and be just patient and pull the trigger at the right time. I think I found that balance very well today." WTA story

Serena reaching for a forehand

    Serena said: "Sloane played really well in the first set. Actually in the whole match. I've always thought Sloane can be really great. She's on the right track. She played really well, and she had some very good wins here against two seeds. It was a really positive result, even today." WTA story

    Sloane said: "I thought I played a really solid first set... [Serena] played really well in the second and third sets. You know, you win some, you lose some. I think it was a good effort by me today."

*n16 s15 Flavia Pennetta ITA d n2 s2 Maria Sharapova RUS 3-6, 6-3, 6-2

Maria and Flavia following forehands

    Flavia said: "I'm really happy about this win. In the second set I tried to be more aggressive. My serve helped me a lot, and I was also really aggressive on the return, so [Maria] was starting to have some problems on her serve. It was a really good match. I was really fighting until the last point." WTA story

    Maria said: "I got off to a good start tonight. I definitely had some chances in the beginning of the second set. A few 0-40, 0-30 games. Just didn't commit enough though. Didn't take those chances. [Flavia] gained a little bit of confidence after that. She started feeling a little bit of a breath of fresh air, starting going a little bit more for her serve, for the lines. She just got in a really good rhythm. Everything I gave her she hit back solid with pace. She mixed it up. She saw the ball better."

n3 s3 Simona Halep ROU d n15 s14 Karolina Pliskova CZE 6-4, 6-4

    Simona said: "I think I have a good return. That's why I can win against her. But I just tried to play my game, be aggressive and stay very close to the baseline. Sometimes I did a step behind because she's hitting so strong, but I have confidence right now, which is the most important thing. I went on court and I was fighting for every ball, and I think that's my style." WTA story

n13 s12 Carla Suarez Navarro ESP d n43 Heather Watson GBR 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-1

    Heather said: "It was definitely a battle. I came in with a game plan and tried to execute it as best I could. I felt like I made a lot more errors today, but I felt like [Carla] made me make errors the way she was playing. She plays with a lot of spin and hits a lot of balls in really uncomfortable areas. In the third set I made a lot of loose errors, and my legs went a bit. But it was a tight match, and I'm pleased with this week and how I've done."

Simona following a forehand

    Simona said: "[Carla] was opening the court pretty well with the angles, and it's really tough to play and hit the balls from wide in the court, so I knew I had to start playing more aggressively and hit more into the court. I just tried to relax my body and my mind, fight for every point and play my best. And I'm happy to be in the semifinals here again." WTA story

    Sabine said: "It's such a great feeling to be part of such a great match. [Flavia] saved a match point with an unbelievable backhand. I could not have done much different there. And then I saved three match points in the third set." WTA story

n21 s18 Jelena Jankovic SRB d n85 q Lesia Tsurenko UKR 6-1, 4-1 retired—right ankle injury Thu

Jelena's forehand drive

    Jelena said: "It's never nice to end a match in that way. Lesia has had such a great tournament and has beaten so many great players." WTA story

    Jelena has been coping with injury problems of her own. Jelena said: "To be honest, before I came here I was in doubt if I was going to be able to compete, because I did not have a lot of time to prepare, and if my leg was going to be fine. I had a torn muscle and you cannot do anything about that. I only hit lightly because I wasn't able to move in order to not rip it again. So I only had a couple days of light hitting, and then I went on court to play.

    "But once I hit the court, I was just so excited. I don't care how I'm playing, or if I'm able to move or not, I'm just so excited to be on the court. I'm sick of being on the sidelines, being in the physio room, just being in my room overall, not being able to stay active and do what I love to do, which is play tennis."

n3 s3 Simona Halep ROU d n1 s1 Serena Williams USA walkover—right knee injury

    Serena told the crowd at Indian Wells that she had been having knee pain for a few days and tried to play through it, and had painkiller injections, but the pain still wouldn't go away.

    This year was Serena's first appearance at Indian Wells since 2001 due to a controversy that year after Serena's sister Venus Williams withdrew from their semifinal due to injury. That controversy might be best described in this ESPN article.

    About the final, Simona said: "[Jelena is] a tough player, tough opponent... I know I'll have to run a lot, hit the balls strong and be aggressive. I will have to stay focused for every ball, too, because she's going to be fighting until the end. But I feel ready to play against her. I can win this title, but I expect a very tough match."

Sabine and JJ delivering forehand and backhand

    Jelena said: "I just fought hard, stayed in the zone and took it one point at a time. Sabine has such a great serve. I had to be ready because anything can happen. She can come up with a really huge serve, then sometimes she takes off the pace, so I had to be ready for anything. I just fought hard. That's what I did, and that's what I do best." WTA story

    About the final, Jelena said: "[Simona is] a very solid player... I'm ready. I'm excited. It's been an amazing two weeks for me and I couldn't ask for more. I cannot wait to play against Simona. I'll just give my best to win my second title here in Indian Wells."
