Good week for Nastya's Top Ten attack...let's hope things fall her way in the weeks to come...

7-5 6-4 over a clearly off-form and fat Pierce is not the greatest of scorelines. She'll need to clean that up if she wants to beat Dina

Too many Russian-Russian battles these days but I suppose that comes with having 11% of the Top 100 (and rising)

From eurosport:

Pierce was undone by Myskina's powerful passing shots and intelligent use of angles. However, the Frenchwoman did show some of the form that once elevated her into the world's Top 10 when she battled back to 5-5 after trailing 1-4 in the opening set.

Myskina then produced some superb shots to take the set in great style, with a double-handed backhand down the line. The Frenchwoman matched Myskina shot-for-shot in the second set until the score reached 4-4, even saving a breakpoint with a blistering volley in the third game. But Myskina picked up the pace when it mattered, breaking Pierce in the ninth game and holding her on serve to seal the victory.

A small article from here


Myskina - third career title (Getty Images)

MYSKINA CLAIMS QATAR CROWN

Russian Anastasia Myskina won her third career title on Sunday, defeating countrywoman Elena Likhovtseva in the final of the Qatar Women's Open.

Myskina, the second seed, needed just 58 minutes to register a 6-3 6-1 victory over the fifth-seeded Likhovtseva, in the first all-Russian final in WTA Tour history.

"I am very proud of being part of history," Myskina said.

"I played really well today and I am very happy. I did not have a game plan, I just tried to win the points.

"The first set was a bit tight, but after the break in the seventh game everything worked.

"The second set was not as easy as the score shows, I fought all the way."

Myskina, who is the 11th-ranked player in the world, took home £16,000 in her first victory since the Brazil Open in September.

Likhovtseva was seeking her third career title and first since 1997.

"Anastasia played really well," Likhovtseva said.

"She was in control throughout the whole match. She served real well, was aggressive and took many chances.

"She mixes up her game a lot which makes it really hard to control."

In 1972 when Russia was part of the Soviet Union, Olga Morozova defeated Marina Kroshina in the final of the Eastern Grass Court Championships in New Jersey.
