:bounce::bounce::bounce: JJ queen of Mickey Mouse tournaments is officially back!! First title of 2009 - congrats Jelena..... But could you please stop choking when serving for the match :fiery: A gutsy performance by Navarro, saving a couple of match points on her serve and on Jankovic's serve.

God her strings are tearing badly in the picture.

Good win and good tournament for Jelena :). Hopefully this can give her some confidence for the rest of the year and she can start playing some better tennis now. Even when Jelena is playing bad, she can win these tournaments. Sign of a good top player :)

Tough luck to Carla, shame she couldn't get the title in front of her home crowd but she played some good tennis this week and got to her first of what should be many finals on the WTA circuit.

She played great in the first set. Going for her shots and forcing play. She was then moonballing a bit too much in the 2nd and the end of the 3rd set for my liking, hence why she struggled a little. :o Good luck for the rest of the clay season JJ. :yeah:

Well not exactly. Her 16th best result is 220 points and only the 16 best tournaments can count. When the 280 title points are added in and the 220 16th result points are taken out, she only technically gains 60 points.

so will her FCC points drop off next week?

Apr 13th, 2009, 07:36 AM

Yes, but they are worth 220 points (which happens to be the same as her best 16th result) and she has a few other tournaments where she earned 220 points, Berlin and Tokyo. So even though she isn't playing she wont have lost any points in her ranking because another 220 points will pop up to take its place as the best 16th result.
