Their First WTA Tour Titles

I thought this would be a nice idea since usually the first title's pictures are the hardest to find, like Jankovic's 2004 Budapest win, Davenport's 1993 Lucerne win and Venus' 1998 Oklahoma City where there were no pictures and someone needed to take screen caps. You can post pictures and videos of anyone else's first title.

Serena Williams
1999 Paris

Venus Williams
1998 Oklahoma City

Dinara Safina
2002 Sopot

Svetlana Kuznetsova
2002 Helsinki

Elena Dementieva
2003 Amelia Island

Vera Zvonareva
2003 Bol

Victoria Azarenka
2009 Brisbane

Caroline Wozniacki
2008 Stockholm

Maria Sharapova
2003 Tokyo [Japan Open]

Amelie Mauresmo

Re: Their First WTA Tour Titles

Didn't know Elena's first title was rather late in her career since people have been raving about her since the 2000 Olympics.

and Dinara was looking pretty much the same now compared to the pic here.

Re: Their First WTA Tour Titles

Elena and petrova, for the kind of talent they are, must have taken the longest into their career before winning a title.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Petrova played 115 tournaments (counting only MDs) before claiming her first title, Dementieva played 91 tournaments.
For comparison, other top-3 Russians Myskina, Kuznetsova and Sharapova "wasted" only 1, 8 and 13 tour MDs respectively before winning their first trophies.
