AI Final: [1] Maria Sharapova def. Dominika Cibulkova 7-6(7) 6-3

First clay title for Maria and 3rd title of the year

Great week, did well to nab that first set and powered through the second

Domi Could have should have taken the second, but an amazing week and truly credited herself well with some great play in the final. However she did have a injury start of the second which affected her movement quite a bit

Really poor match, but well done to Maria for winning her first title on clay.

Congrats to Maria, but I don't find her run to the title very impressive. I'd like to see her face off a top 5 player on clay. Sad for Domi. She had chances in the first and it seems like she totally gave up in the second.

Maria

She's shown incredible fight throughout the week and thoroughly deserves her first clay-court title

Great week for Dominika too

I was very impressed with Cibulkova's composure in her first WTA final. She played some great clay court tennis. It's too bad that she got that injury in the second set. At least she ended the match respectably.

Maria is 22-1 in 2008.
She reached the RG SF and then won this green clay Tier II, so she has won 9 of her last 10 on clay.
She's getting there.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
