Wow! Didn't expect that after the Semifinal performances. :eek:
Pretty straight-forward match. Vinci lead 5-2 in the second set, Kirilenko got one break back but Vinci never looked threatened.
Congratulations to Vinci for her 2nd title. She played really well. Maria just wasn't there today. :confused: Still, she must be happy to win a string of matches this week.

Some screencaps :p (Aranxta Sanchez Vicario awarded the prizes)

Maria that was horrible :sad: :sobbing: she played so well yesterday and then this.... She's obviously capable of playing much much better. At least you won some matches here :hug:

Vinci is having a great clay season so far, so well deserved.

Vinci was awsome, some very clever shots like always. Makiri was clearly very tired from yesterday's matches you could see it very clearly but Vinci was very good during all the tournament.

So happy for Roby :woohoo: I really wanted her to win this after what happened in her last final.

Kirilenko should be pleased with her week. It's the first time this year she's won many matches in a row+ she beat a very good player in CSN :yeah:

Lil Mashs should have played more moonballs, maybe then she would have had a chance;)
Anyway, great tournament for both:yeah:

WHAT?! This is someone who went 5-6 in 2008 and had won all of 15 matches since winning Bogota over TWO years ago. This title run is a true upset.

Roberta is a great talent and wonderful to watch, I'm pleased for her. Well done to her for not giving up. :yeah:


This was an essential week for Kirilenko to establish some sort of form going into the clay. She is probably disappointed with this scoreline but at least she is up and running for 2009, finally.

I've always thought Kirilenko was an useless player.
Her game is neither here or there.
Vinci is pure class. I only saw her once before against Myskina in Rome and she was terrible. Those slices are just to die for.

I totally agree with your opinions about both the players.

Did you watch any of Kirilenko's matches this week? She played pretty damn good for such a useless player.
