I don't know how bad Agnes' injury was, but perhaps if she managed to hang on with Sveta, she would find a way to win in 3. Ana twisted her ankle in Berlin's final and Sveta couldn't take advantage of Ana who couldn't run more than for 3 balls.

I think Sveta would have won anyway. She had quite in every service game of szavay breakchances. It was just about time that sveta would find in her game. She did at the beginning of the 2nd.

How typical for me...I wake up and turn on the TV to 6-4, 0-3 Agnes...and a minute later the match is over. Agnes is 18...why aren't these women figuring out how to prevent these kinds of injuries?

Looks like Sveta will take over #3 after her easy draw at the US Open. I hope she at least plays better next week and looks like the contender she should be. This one didn't sound pretty.

Congrats Sveta, first tournament win of the year, asterisk or not.

First time I've seen Agnes. A bit of a Vaidisova Lite. The powerful hitting with the big backswings from both sides and the serve motion. Her second serve is pretty gutsy too. But she doesn't place it as well as Nicole. She was often late on her forehand side though, but I don't know how much that had to do with her back. Impressed by her composure as well. Very mature for her age. There's definitely top 20 potential at the very least.
Very sad ending of the tournament. Sveta has been playing ugly tennis all week and still gets a title. And a very easy draw at the US Open for the faux nr.4
