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.
