Welcome to Dubai, our second stop in the Middle East this season. Azarenka continued to impress last week by storming through to her second consecutive title. Can she reproduce that magic here? Will last week's RU Cirstea be able to regroup from her disappointment and finally win another title? Will defending champion Sharapova finally get a decent tournament under her belt this season? Only time will tell!

Chris I like the picture scoring for all early rounds as you normally do it ;) but maybe it would be good if you sometimes started from the bottom of the draw.

I just thought it would be easier for Chris. I mean he's human too and it's very hard finding those 32 images and posting everything :o

I guess it would be easier but normally the picture scoring goes quickly so I imagine Chris finds it easy to do. :shrug:

(1) Molik def. Azarenka
0-6 6-1 6-2


Molik shows her #1 credentials here as she claims her first title of the season, and 5th title overall. She also brings Azarenka's phenomenal 14-match win streak to an end. Another awesome week for Azarenka who sees another ranking rise, this time up to #7. Well done!
