Although I'm bit surprised she didn't win this in 2.

Puchkova's English is excellent.
Even though Olga is Russian, she is also a New York girl having lived there for several years. (That said, I'm not sure if she is still there.)

I do always have a warm spot in my heart for New Yorkers.

But Olga also has a great personality and I hope she takes a title this season. Hopefully she'll keep the same level of play in the next tournaments.

Greatest speech EVER from Olga in the ceremony!
This on every word.

I hope Olga gets another chance very soon. The first time I saw her play was this year in Brisbane and she has impressed every time I've seen her save one match (you can probably guess which one .) She has a beautiful game and I think if she can get her head on straight she has the potential to do very well this year.

Congrats to Niculescu as well after saving 3 match points in the first round

Well I suppose Miami is a better place for a tennis player to develop their skills, so fair enough.

But for sure New York >>>>> Miami

Olga Still a good tournament for her and I hope we'll see her in another final soon.

Monica Congrats on her well deserved first WTA title!

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Aww I missed it - fell asleep.

I'd love to see the ceremony. Did anyone download it please?

Congrats Monica.

Well done Olga for making a match of it. Both lovely girls and good luck to both for the season.

are those guys beside them their coaches? Nice to see the players share their moment with their coaches on court.
