Tatjana won semis 6-4 and 6-2 against Voina and the Final 6-4 and 6-4 against Number two seed Topalova.
Ok, now you can say I'm a freak.
The semi was very close in first set, the balls were very slow because it rained for 2 hours and so it was a bad match, in witch a bit more concentrated Malek took the first set, because she archived to break Voina at *4-5. Then Voina was really frustrated, and although Taddes movement was really bad today (she wasn't able to get any stops besides one or two) - they broke each other up to 2-2 and then Tadde was able to hold and was playin very good It was the same the whole day, Tatjana needs some time to get into to match, 2-4 games. So she took that match easily in the end.
The final was very though, even when Topalovas shoulder started to get weak and she needed some medical assitence. The first set was like the one against Voina, Tatjana was able to make the break at *4-5, after she was broken in that set once. But the match was on a good level, nice conditions and some very nice shots of Tatjana, but then she make some unbeliavable errors. Her serve is weak, too. She is not able to get the first in very often, but today she was the one to make the big points. When she again won the set by breaking at *4-5, she won the tournament.
A nice little German Master Series Tournament with 200-300 visitors. Next time they should have some ballkids, there were some in the final but they were not able to do the job.
