Toronto Final: (2) Ai & Kata win first title, def. (1) Black & Huber 6-4 2-6 [10-5]

What an amazing match
They came close to losing the first set, took them 3 SPs to get it.
Then in the second, were down 0-4 quickly, completely lost their momentum.
But they rushed out to a 7-1 lead in the match tiebreaker and never looked back.
100% first serves in match tiebreaker

It's their first team title, Ai's 34th doubles titles and Kata's 16th title (3rd this year.)

Another statistic: Ai has won at least one doubles title each year since 1994

They got revenge for both their Grand Slam losses this year. Sweet

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.

Good win. Congrats.
I'm so happy they beat Black and Huber.

Now time for black to back losses for Bluber.

Something needs to change.

Confidence boost for both.

I am They did it in Canada, of all places, that makes me really happy
Plus, they'll both get ranking points and maybe push forward in the rankings.

It's been a while since Ai's last win - Rome in May 2005 - so I'm really happy
Plus, they got revenge for both their GS F losses... I'll admit I'd have rather them won RG & W, but I'm really happy they won in Toronto... =) =) =)
