Kournikova tops Venus;
looking for first title this season

http://www.canoe.ca/AnnaKournikovaGalleryImages/anna_122.jpg


Russian Anna Kournikova, dropped down in the ranking as she failed to defend her Wimbledon title. Since then, the Russian beauty is trying to get her form back and is hoping to be a part of this season end championship, held in Monte Carlo, in two weeks. Currently ranked 9th in the world and the race.
''I really hope to make YEC this season. I arrived too late last season, so I failed to enter this prestigious tournament but now, I donít have any excuses if I donít finish in Top8. I am looking forward to play in Monte Carlo. With a final showing here, I guess my ranking will go up a little bit and I should have better chances to qualify after this week. Guess Tour director, Chris, will reveal who already enter YEC now. I am excited for this and I am going to fight for every matches now. Every games are important at this stage of the season.'' said Kournkikova.

Anna beats Azarenka, Dechy, Larcher de Brito and Venus Williams to reach the final. Every matches were 3 setters and the Russian player lost the first set in every matches. Next for her will be Ana IvanovicÖ
''This is something I should work on. For sure, itís good for the confidence when youíre coming back from a first set deficit. Itís always though to be positive in these kind of situations but it felts great when you do it. I am going to play against Ana in the final. I do think she owns me in our meetings. Anyway, like Iíve just said before, I am going to give everything I have and I will fight for every points. This match is important for me, for my ranking and for my confidence. I havenít won a title since the end of the first season and I am looking forward to win my first title of the season. I hope Iíll get past this match. It would be awesome and it would show to other girls that I am again a Top players here!íí said Kournikova.

Congratulatons to Ana Ivanovic who claims her third OWTT title, all coming this season. Ivanovic has played the big points well all week, going 3-0 in her tiebreak sets, which proved crucial here today. Kournikova will be mad she didn't take advantage of an early break in the second set, but still a good week for her. Ivanovic improves from #12 to #9, with Kournikova jumping from #9 to #6. Kournikova remains #9 in the race, however, with Ivanovic just 15 points ahead at the all important #8 spot!
