Welcome to the Middle East where we stop in Doha, Qatar this week. Last week saw Kirilenko edge out Vaidisova, for her second title of the season. Can she continue to sizzle here in Doha or will one of the top players step up to the plate and do what is expected of them?

Kournikova fights into final

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/550/21237497982kournikova.jpg


The hot blonde Russian continues her great season in Doha this week. Anna already reached three finals this season : in Sydney, a Tier 1 title, the Australian Open and this week in Doha. But will she be able to break this curse and won her third title in career, her last one was in Quebec, S1. As mentionned, Anna is one of the most consistent player so far this season. She’s one of the rare seeds who goes far in draws. This week, she eliminated the last remaining seed, Lindsay Davenport, 7th, in straight sets of 6-1 and 6-4. That was a sweet revenge from her AO’final loss. She continued her road while beating Ivanovic in a hot three sets match, 6-2 6-7(13) 6-3. She will meet in form Safarova.''This is really cool. Last season, I didn’t have a great one and I wasn’t enjoying myself as I am doing right now. For sure, the results help me to be happy and to believe in myself. I don ‘t have pressure anymore. I mean, I won Wimbledon as my first tournament and everyone had high expectations from me. I have been #2 in the world and I think I wasn’t ready for that success. Now, I know how to deal with pressure and success and I think I am ready to get back my #2 spot, which I am going to go back next week. Serena is still on Top of the world but she’s not in great form right now but I am sure she will be back to her Level. I know she can do it and she knows it…that’s just a matter of time. I will play Lucie in final. She has been in hot form since the beginning of the season. She’s a really good player and she plays high quality tennis. I don’t know what to expect from this match and from the final. Honestly, I don’t think I will win because there’s a curse for me. I can’t win titles anymore. I can reach finals, but not titles. Anyway, I will play my best and give everything I have.'' said Kournikova.

Congratulations to Lucie Safarova who picks up her second career title. She was in stellar form all week, not dropping a set, although she did get lucky with the CT today. Safarova returns back to the Top 10. Kournikova is the bridesmaid yet again as she falls to 0-3 in finals this season. Once again it is only because of a CT that she's not holding the trophy, so she knows she is pretty much there and just a matter of time before she picks up another title. She has been incredibly consistent this season, whoich is reflected in her #1 Race position, and she moves up to #2 in the rankings as well :)

Jose.
