(3) Maria Sharapova Downs (4) Elena Dementieva 6-1 6-2

A lot of close games ... but Sharapova won the big points!

Go Maria!

Dementieva broke twice, btw...she lead 2-0 in the second set.

Awful match from Elena, awful. It's really a pity she freezes up in so many of these big finals.

Elena was awful. Way too many errors and just wasnt out there playing her game.

Go, Maria! First Tier I !!!

Miami should be a great tournament. No one at Indian Wells could challenge her.

Congrats, Maria!

This title is long overdue, she's been so consistent, it's only right she wins a big one once in a while. Not that good a match, but she was solid and played as well as she could with the wind and copping up with Elena's game. It was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests, but Maria hang in there and won the important points!

Dementieva, still a very good week. Congrats as well and good luck to both in Miami!

Lena D. why couldn't you have played like this in the Tokyo Final? Bleh I should be happy with her great fighting, but I wish she would have played better today. She played the big points poorly. Her serve wasn't even that bad, it was her groundies that were off today. Disappointing, but hey it's a final. Good luck in Miami.

Nice tournament Maria.

Good for Maria, but bad for Elena I feel bad for liking Elena, I cursed her

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.
