I sent points but Nikki wll probably lose 1st round. She can beat the big guns like Serena, Kournikova, Olaru, Dmenetieva and Hantuchova but she can often lose in the early rounds to scrubs like Benesova. The good thing is Nikki won no more than 2 or 3 matches last years in probably the 1st 5 or 6 tournaments.

Congratulations to Kirilenko who wins her first tour title, and she does it in style by taking out the #1 player in straight sets here in the final. Kirilenko showed fantastic fight today, coming back from 0-3 in each set, as well as being 5-3 down in the first. Serena will be disappointed she blew her leads, but still a nice opening week for her :)

Maria finally wins her first title at OWTT!!

http://d.yimg.com/a/p/sp/getty/1e/fullj.5e3f11968e69e72ed59bff80bdba7773/5e3f11968e69e72ed59bff80bdba7773-getty-tennis-wta-kor-rus-kirilenko.jpg
Maria with her trophy

Anyone still remember Maria Kirilenko?? She had a terrible season 2 and she really wants to do well in the season 3!! And now her goal seems having some hope as she wins her first career title at Gold Coast, beating world number one Serena Williams in the final.

Her road to the title

1R: Maria Emilia Salerni W/O
2R: (5)Ana Ivanovic 6-4 0-6 6-3
QF: (WC)Lucie Safarova 6-3 0-6 6-3
SF: Nicole Vaidisova 7-6(5) 6-2
F: (1)Serena Williams 7-5 6-3

Actually Maria was having a pretty bad draw, with former Aussie Open finalist Ivanovic, former RG champion Vaidisova and the current number one Williams in her way to the final. But she showed her mental tough against Ivanovic and Safarova, turned the match over after being bagelled in both matches. Also she played better and better in her final two matches, beating two GS champions in style!! So she deserves this title!

"i don't what to say, it's just so emotional, i never expect i can do well here. I was considering retirement at the end of the season 2 as i had a lot of 1R exits, but my coach said to me that i did really well in Australia last season and she taught me a new game-plan, so why not giving it a try. And i really don't expect this try can be my success!! Actually after reaching the semis, i had been really pleased already, luckily i didn't think so much things, and i win the title!! Again, i have a lot of points to defend at Sydeny, so i need to train harder and harder to make myself get back on this tour!!"

After her title win, she rose three places to no.20. And she will now face number three seed Dinara Safina at the first round of the Medibank International held in Sydeny!! We are all looking forward to it!
