Vaidisova takes pregnancy break

Czech star Nicole Vaidisova has told the ATC tour why she performed so badly during the US Hardcourt season, she was pregnant. Vaidisova has now decided to take a season long break from the ATC tour to look after her baby.

"This is the reason I played so badly in the hardcourt season - I had other things on my mind. You noticed the only player I beat was Alicia Molik, well we were both pretty big so I knew I had a chance against her. All the other fit, slim players I had no chance. Its best I take a break so I can concentrate on one thing at a time"

Her coach will be taking a new player during Vaidisovas time away

Domachowska hopes to have a "fun" match against best friend, Maria Kirilenko

http://members.chello.pl/l.mucha1/SWM/305/maria4.jpg

In a press confernece today, Marta Domachowska of Poland was somewhat disappointed with her draw as she has never beaten Maria Kirilenko. She's also very good friends and her doubles partner.

"Maria is a great player and very sweet. I think people misunderstand her shyness for rudeness. :angel: We met in the Amelia Island final and a few times. I had chances in each match but she was mentally stronger each time. Hopefully I can come up on top this time."

Despite losing somewhat early in the US Open, Marta hopes that her win over Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo will bring her some confidence and carry her through the upcoming weeks.

http://img395.imageshack.us/img395/7007/74152236cr2.jpg

"It should be a great contrast of styles. I rely on my power but she's very fast and has great angles. We'll see what happens!"

Finally, Molik Finishes First

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/647/24780bef0ec28da0ebeb0d6f03b7d74b-getty-tennis-aus-open-molik.jpg

For the first time in Australian Alicia Molik's career, she has left a tournament as the champion. After several runner-up performances and countless semifinal and quarterfinal finishes, Molik finally took home a title as she won the Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp, Belgium. In the final, the fifth seed defeated Russia's Alina Jidkova 7-5 6-7(6) 6-4.

"This is amazing; I feel great... Obviously I've had a stellar career with two Aussie Open runner-ups as well as a few doubles titles, but to actually win a title in singles is just incredible... I've been dreaming of this day since I joined the tour."

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/647/a933739a34c0a27233d6803ac6532a71-getty-tennis-aus-open-molik.jpg
Molik also became the first player in ATC history to win a title on her least-preferred surface. Playing indoors, Molik also took out world number one Michaella Krajicek and talented rising star Maria Sharapova on her way to the final.

"Obviously, my expectations were not too high for the indoors season as I don't play on it as well as I do on other surfaces, but I really felt like I stuck with my game plan this week and I'm so proud that it paid off... To beat Krajicek in the quarters was a huge step for me mentally on this surface and it really gave me a lot of confidence... Comisserations to Alina, she played a solid match today and really forced me to dig deep and play my best tennis; she's certainly a tough girl to come up against."
