Welcome to Dubai, our first Premier+ event of the season, so big points up for grabs here. Szavay continued to impress last week by storming through to her fifth career title, as well as the #1 spot. Can she reproduce that magic here? Will last week's RU Hantuchova be able to regroup from her disappointment and win another title? Will defending champion Molik finally get a decent tournament under her belt? Only time will tell!

(8) Kournikova def. (14) Jie Zheng
6-4 6-4


Congrats to Kournikova who wins the first Premier+ event of the season, picking up a cool 750 points! She played great all week and was just that little bit sharper than Zheng today, which made the difference. This is Kournikova's biggest title after her Wimbledon win back in Season 1, and she is rewarded with a return to the #3 ranking. Zheng should be pleased with her week, which included wins over Brisbane champ Larcher de Brito and AO champ Venus Williams. She improves to a career-best ranking of #12.

Kournikova wins 4th career title in Dubai

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/550/1akoupic13.jpg


The Russian player started the season with a final appearance in Brisbane, losing in three tight sets to Larcher de Brito. After that disappointment, she lost three consecutive matches, falling down to #8 in the rankings. Kournikova bounced back this week in Dubai, where she captured her 1st title of the season and the 4th one of her career. She now stands at #3 in the ranking, 55 points away from Azarenka, #2.
“This is quite exciting. I am only 55 points away from the #2 position. Last time I was #2, I think it was when Serena dominates the Tour. That’s quite old... So that’s pretty exciting to know I can be back up there. Agnes has a 600 points difference between us. But with the new point system and a few first round losses from her, everything is possible. After Acapulco, there’s two Premier + events, Indian Wells and Miami. So everyone will have a shot to be #1.” said Kournikova.


Here is Kournikova’s road to the championship:
Round 32: def. Seles 7-5, 6-3.
Round 16: def. (13) Petrova 0-6, 7-5, 6-2.
Quarters: def. Bondarenko 6-4, 7-6(7).
Semis: def. Bartoli 0-6, 6-1, 7-6(5).
Final: def. (14) Zheng 6-4, 6-4.
“I didn’t have the toughest road to the title, that’s true. But every girl here can win the title. So it’s not because they aren’t seeded that they are easy to beat. I am really happy with the way I played this week. I was dictating my game and got more and more confident as the match progressed. My movement are good and I am feeling very well. The only this I have to work on for the future, is definitely some consistency. I mean, it’s not normal to be bagelled by other girls. I know some of them are ball bashers, but I will try to work on stamina and consistency. I don’t think this is possible though, but I think I will try it one day...” said Anna.
