What a beginning of season for Mara! She's rising in the world ranking so quickly!She's been up 51 places since the year ending ranking...and her 11th position in the Race is the proof than she's playing on fire. Last week, she won her 1rst title on the WTA Tour. So she took the crown in Bangalore Tier IV $175K after a strong battle in the final vs back on form 6th seed/n50 Jelena Kostanic.

Olga was last week sensation in Antwerp Tier II $600K! She reached her 2nd Quater final on the WTA Tour but the 1rst was in a Tier IV (Tashkent). This time, she first had to qualify upsetting 2nd seed/n70 Julia Schruff. She continues her run in the Main draw with her best victory on the tour beating 9th seed/n14 Daniela Hantuchova before falling to 4th seed/n7 Nadia Petrova. With such a result, she breaks the Top 100 for the 1rst time.

KING Vania:
We already said that Vania was one of the biggest american hope...and she confirmed this week...close to the Top 100 now! For her only 5th participation in the WTA Tour Main Draw, she reached the semi final in Bangalore Tier IV $175K retiring against eventual champion 3rd seed/n59 Mara Santangelo. She's up 33 places this week.

That 2 handed both sides player won her 10th ITF title and the 1rst of the year in Capriolo $25K. As 5th seed in Capriolo, she didn't face any seeded player for the crown, beating surprising qualifer n318 Darija Jurak in the final. Lucie is steadly progressing in the world ranking...close to the top 150 now.

Alla won her 1rst match in a WTA Main Draw after qualifying. She beat 2nd seed/n133 Aleksandra Wozniak in the last roung of the qualies, Tamarine Tanasugarn in the 1rst round of the main draw before loosing to italian Maria Elena Camerin (n92). With that run, she's breaking the top 200 for the 1rst time.
