Welcome to our last stop before the season's final Grand Slam. We are here in New Haven, Connecticut this week for a Tier II tournament. This tournament will be crucial in deciding the seedings for the US Open as well as the final standings of the US Open Series Race, which gives crucial bonus ranking points. Hantuchova has already secured the #1 spot in the US Series Race, but #2 and #3 are still up for grabs, so all the players will be striving to do well here this week.

Sharapova Looking To Retirement

http://www.sportsnet.ca/tennis/2008/04/30/sharapova_upset_ap_260.jpg

Maria Sharapova, currently 18th in the world, was a former top 10 player and has been battling a slump this year. She hasn't won a match since who knows when. She said that she already probably past her peak and won't be playing the same level as the new players on the tour. She may be planning a retirement following the end of the year but she does not want to drop out in the middle of the season. She also said that this is not an official retirement but she will retire if she continues "to play like shit".

This week, Sharapova will play in New Haven followed by the US open. She is hoping to go well there and hoping not to retire from this great tour. "I mean, come on, I was seeded for everything last year, and this year, I'm not even close to being seeded. I mean.. I have to play crap players like... BendUsOver in the first round.. I mean, I don't even know who the hell that is." This is what she had to say about her possible second ronud encounter with world's number 1 Serena Williams. "Who's that, is she that person's sister's sister? Who is that? What's her name, Serena? ... What, what, what? She's number 1? Ohhh you've gotta be fucking kidding me.. I thought that slut was number 1, what's her name?"

Hantuchova is singlehandedly killing OWTT. The only way things could get worse is if Hingis dedcided she was ready and won the next four slam.

Safarova Ready in New Haven

http://i38.tinypic.com/16quxy.png

New Haven, USA - After going down in a thriller to Elena Dementieva in the third round in Montreal last week, world number 13, Lucie Safarova is keen to take some bigger steps in the last tournament before the US Open. But the draw showed no favours for the Czech number 2, with a potential rematch with world number 4, Elena Dementieva looming in the third round. Safarova, who lost to Dementieva last week in a tiebreaker last set, is confident here in New Haven. “I like these courts, they’re much faster than the ones in Montreal, and hopefully this will suit my game better.” “The loss against Elena was tough, but I’ve pulled up well after it and I hope to take my game to another level in the coming weeks.” "I feel like I can be up with the top 10 girls, my goal is to be inside the top 10 by the end of the season." With a bye first up, Safarova will play either Schiavone or Wickmayer in the second round with first round action getting underway on Thursday afternoon.

Michelle Larcher de Brito ready to win a title

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/global/library/200x250/larcher%2008estorilblog%20mon%20200.jpg

Portuguese teenager de Brito is ready to finally win a title in OWTT tour. She reached Montreal, Tier 1 final last week were she lost in straights to Dani Hantuchova. "That was my first experience in a final and I was very nervous so I can't handled with so many presure." The portuguese said in a review of her first final. But in New Haven she is more confidence than ever and she thinks she has a good hopes to win title. "I had seen the draw and it is a bit hard but a think I can fly high and finally book a title." In the US Open series she is in 4th place very near to 3rd. " The US Open series is also an important thing and I have to do better than Safina and Serena to qualify." The tournament will start in few moments.

It's not good for my image, so I hope you can understand that one day and leave me alone. I'm annoyed with you, you should stop stalking me.

Safarova Battles into Semifinals

http://i35.tinypic.com/2eqe54h.png

New Haven, USA - World number 13, Lucie Safarova, has battled into the semifinals of the tier 2 event in New Haven week with three good wins over some tough opponents. After stating early in the week she was fond of these courts, the Czech beat Schiavone, Domachowska and seventh seed Olaru en-route to a semifinal match-up with Frenchwomen, Natalie Dechy. Below is how Lucie made it through to the semifinals:


(13) Safarova def Schiavone 0-6 7-6 (5) 6-0

All looked lost for Safarova during her second round match up, as she didn’t get a game on the board until the tenth game of the match. A tenacious Schiavone led 6-0 3-0, but struggled from then on, getting broken back with Safarova battling to a 4-3 lead. Both girls’ serves were on fire in the second set, holding easily, but it was Safarova’s forehand that did the damage in the tiebreaker. After winning it 7-5, a more confident and rejuvenated Safarova tore the feisty Italian apart bagelling her to progress through to the third round. “Fran played amazing tennis for one and a half sets, but I thankfully clicked into gear midway through the second set.” “I’m happy that I showed some grit today, I also felt like my forehand and my serve helped me a lot.” “Elena lost to Marta, who will be a tough customer in the next round.”


(13) Safarova def Domachowska 0-6 6-2 6-0

Like her second round match, Safarova started slowly with errors costing her the first set where she struggled to play her top tennis. Domachowska just had to be patient as Safarova sprayed her groundstrokes all over the court which resulted in a bagel first set. Down a set for the second match in a row, Safarova started nailing her shots which gave her a massive confidence boost as she quickly raced to a 4-0 lead. She suffered minor hiccup, dropping two games but strongly closed out the set 6-2. A demolishment job was done in the third set, as a determined Safarova lifted her serve percentage to book a spot in the quarterfinals. “I started slow again but I’m happy I got back on the rails like last match.” “The court speed really is complimenting my shots, when they’re on, and I’m feeling fresh and ready.” “I want to start from the first serve against Olaru, and play some top 10 tennis.”


(13) Safarova def (7) Olaru 6-1 6-2

Her wish was granted, as Safarova finally turned the tables starting playing her best tennis from the first serve. She served with pace and accuracy, returned furiously and attacked the net in a near perfect first set performance. Only hitting 4 unforced errors, Safarova calmly won the first set 6-1 against the seventh seeded Romanian. Although Olaru got an early break in the second set, it was all Safarova as her aggressive game plan, paid off against Olaru who choked away a break to be dismantled 6-1 6-2. “I’m so pleased with my performance today!” said an excited Safarova. “I was playing the way I want to from the start of the match which really gave me extra energy and confidence.” “I’m really excited about my match with Natalie, hopefully I can reach the final.”

Great final between these two unseeded players here today, with Schnyder battling back from a set down to edge Dechy in the end. This is Schnyder's debut title on the OWTT Tour, and she will go into New York next week brimming with confidence. She also finishes in 3rd spot in the US Series Race, just edging out Dechy by 1 point, so today was a critical win for Schnyder!

OMG. Finally. :sobbing:
My first title win since the doubles early on is Season 1 (though I don't count it anymore since dubs was cancelled :() :woohoo: Though it is my first singles win in this game. :D What a day for me! I also won a title in WTT. :lol:
I was so gutted when I lost in the Birmingham semis and hearing that I would've won the final if not for a coin toss or whatever. This certainly makes up for that. :D
Nathalie. :hug: Great match. :yeah:
