PYW - Philadelphia | Final | Please vote!

PYW Philadelphia



The 2005 Advanta Championships is the one of the two last tournaments to be held before the YEC comes around. Three of the PYW Top Ten players are present here, fighting hard to rise a bit more, and possibly to qualify for the Year-End Championships.

Final:

vs
Elena Dementieva RUS [4] vs Ai Sugiyama JPN

Two top ten players in the final. What could the tournament directors of the 2005 Advanta Championships have asked more?

World number two Elena Dementieva started off this tournament with a bye, scored an easy win over qualifier Müller and repeated such victory over former topplayer Vera Zvonareva. In the semi finals, she again lost few games against Nadia Petrova, who ousted title defender De Los Rios in the second round. If Elena grabs the title today, it will be her 8th career title and 5th this season.

Ai Sugiyama is still looking for a title. The Japanese #7 has played in a couple of finals, but never ended up as the victor. Her route to the final wasn't as easy as Dementieva's: her matches against Jankovic and Koukalova lasted three long sets.


Final:

Elena Dementieva RUS [4, WC] vs Ai Sugiyama JPN

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Dementieva

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
