Nagyova beats Kurhajcova to win Volvo Women's Open

Nagyova beats Kurhajcova to win Volvo Women's Open

November 9, 2003
PATTAYA CITY, Thailand (Ticker) - Henrieta Nagyova beat Lubomira Kurhajcova, 6-4, 6-2, Sunday in an all-Slovakian final to win the $110,000 Volvo Women's Open.

Nagyova captured her first title since Warsaw in 2000 and ninth overall. She had been runner-up at three tournaments, including here in 2001, since her last triumph.

The 24-year-old Nagyova, who earned $16,000, has consistently found success at Pattaya City. In addition to her final showing here two years ago, she took home the winner's trophy in 1997 and reached the semifinals in 1996 and 2000.


Nagyova advanced to the final after ousted top seed and local favorite Tamarine Tanasugarn.

A four-time winner on the ITF circuit, Kurhajcova failed to claim her first WTA crown. However, she did upset three seeded players, including No. 2 Saori Obata of Japan, en route to a $9,000 paycheck.

In the opening set, Nagyova made the decisive break in the third game and took advantage of a nervous Kurhajcova - playing in her first WTA Tour final - to jump out to a 4-1 lead in the second set. She was able to serve out the match.

Henya's last ever tour victory, I'm so glad that I saw her play against Amelie this year. Not the most powerful of players, but consisent and nice variety. What shame injuries killed her career

Isn't she planning to become a model after her career?

And whatever happened to Kurhajcova. She wasn't an amazing player but she's been nowhere since 2004.
