Defending Champion : Gisela Dulko

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0ccP3Ytd2p42T/340x.jpg


Welcome to Berlin, as we kick off the European clay swing, in the lead up to Roland Garros. Daniela Hantuchova was in stunning form in Charleston last week. Can she reproduce similar form here in Berlin? The top players will be looking to re-establish themselves here, after relatively poor showings for most last week.

Dulko - 350
S.Williams - 225
Domachowska - 150
Dementieva - 150
Safina - 90
Olaru - 90

Peer - 40
Salerni - 15

Ouch!!! This loss has really got to hurt for Kirilenko. She was up 4-0 and 5-1 in both the 2nd and 3rd sets but could not close out, as Craybas came storming back both times for a dramatic victory. Craybas moves on to the semis and is looking good once again!

Safarova is playing with such confidence lately, and it shows as she completely blew Jankovic away in the end! Safarova moves on to the semis, and also books a spot in the top 10!

Cornet did well to recover after a disastrous start. At 4-0 up in the decidr it looked like Cornet would cruise to victory, but Vaidisova fought back to 4-4 and looked like she would sneak it, but Cornet was able to steady herself just in time to come out on top. Vaidisova will be pleased to be finding some form as we approach the French, where she is defending champ

Serena really stepped things up in the third set from 2-2 to leave Tanasugarn behind. Still a decent week for Tammy, but it is Serena who will face Cornet in the semis. She is just 2 matches away from the #1 spot - can she handle the pressure?

Safarova will be furious with herself here - she led 4-0 in the first set, and 5-0 in the decider but lost both of those sets. Once again Craybas comes back from the brink of defeat to sneak the victory. She moves on to the final, where she will attempt to win her second title

After a whacky first 2 sets we saw some absolutely thrilling stuff from these 2 in the decider. Cornet got the early break, before Serena took charge, just to be broken back by Cornet for 5-5 - heading into the breaker it was anybody's guess who would get the win, but just one mini-break edged it for Serena. She, like Craybas, will be gunning for her 2nd title of the season, but Serena also has the #1 spot firmly in her sights going into the final. Good week for Cornet, who will move up to #6 next week.

I think Craybas should be dubbed the "Comeback Queen" after this week. Up 5-3 in the decider, Serena will be as sick as a chip after letting this one slip away, but all credit to Craybas for hanging tough and she wins her 2nd title. Serena's quest for #1 will have to wait, but probably only a week as Dementieva is defending champ in Rome next week
