Welcome to Moscow, Russia. Last week saw the qualifiers shine, with Zvonareva defeating fellow-qualifier Bartoli to take the title in Stuttgart. Both will be looking to do well again this week. With just 2 events left before the season-ending championships, this is the final Tier I stop, so still big points up for grabs for the race to the championships! There are still several women in contention for spots, so they will have to give it their all here.

V.Williams def. Larcher de Brito
6-4 3-6 6-4


Congrats to Venus, who picks up her second career title. Michelle will be livid that she let leads of 4-0 slip in both the 1st and 3rd sets, but still a great week for her, reaching another final. Venus climbs up to #12 and is making a late surge for the YEC.
