Re: Doha Draws and Results [2013]

Singles Results, Semifinals

Amelie Szczotka-Strozna def. [14]Giuseppina Benedetti 2/6, 6/4, 7/5
After her win in Auckland, Amelie went so quiet and almost winless on the tour. Now in Doha, she has come from nowhere to make it to the finals, defeating Giusa today.

[8]Harper Johnson def. Yanina Ma 6/7(3), 7/6(5), 7/6(3)
Harper has made no waves here in the tournament, just quietly winning her matches for her best showing in quiet some time.

Re: Doha Draws and Results [2013]

Doubles Results, Semifinals

[1]Casanova/Taliamanosoko def. [4]Afanasyeva/Soren 5/7, 7/5, 7/6(1)
The top team in the world is still undefeated with just about 2 months of the season completed.

Anastidis/Fouche def. [2]Cornetsson/Johnson 6/4, 4/6, 7/6(4)
Harper couldn't make both finals but Alexa is showing her doubles prowess by pairing with an unranked player in Suzanne to make the final.

Re: Doha Draws and Results [2013]

Last year, Harper pulled out of her slump here in Doha by making it to the semis after a totally winless start to the season. So, even though it wasn't the HUGE improvement she was hoping for, by picking up a win in Australia, again last week and now this, 2013 is turning out to be an improvement after all. Good luck in the final, Jen and Ruffy!

Singles Results, Finals

[8]Harper Johnson def. Amelie Szczotka-Strozna 6/2, 1/6, 7/5
Harper captures her biggest title in quite some time by outlasting the surprise finalist in Amelie, who was gunning for her second title of 2013.

Jen and Ruffy cannot be stopped and they have their quickest victory in Doha in the finals. Alex and Suzanne could never get a rhythm going today.

Re: Doha Draws and Results [2013]



Doha, Qatar - American Harper Johnson capped a week of strong tennis with a rousing 6-2, 1-6, 7-5 victory in the finals of the Qatar Total Open against 19 year old Amelie Szczotka-Strozna of Poland. The win marks Johnson's highest profile tournament victory since she hoisted the trophy in Stanford in 2011.

"I am so amazingly thrilled with how things worked out this week," Johnson said during the trophy presentation. "Amelie played a brilliant match and is very easily one of the best young players on the tour. This tournament was special for me last year, as I was able to start putting together strong hardcourt results after a rather disappointing January. So, to have things turn out even better this year gives me a lot of confidence for the next few months. Thanks to all of the tour organizers and everyone who worked so hard this week. And, congrats to Jennifer and Ruflina for their doubles win."
