DOHA, March 4 (Reuters) - Amelie Mauresmo failed to regain the world number one spot when Nadia Petrova beat her 6-3 7-5 in the Qatar Open final on Saturday. France's Mauresmo, winner of three tournaments this year, could have overtaken top-ranked Belgian Kim Clijsters, who was inactive through injury this week, in Monday's WTA rankings if she had beaten the Russian.

Second-seeded world number eight Petrova took the final on her first match point after one and three quarter hours for her second career title.

Elena Dementieva has already won a Tier I this year in Tokyo.
Nadia Petrova won the last WTA event, a Tier II in Doha.
Now Dementieva plays Sharapova in the Indian Wells final.
2006 feels a little like 2004.

I hope Elena can take another Tier I.

She needs these kinds of wins to back her belief when it comes to the year's upcoming GS.

Maria will be tough, but as its a final, I believe Maria may be a little tight. Elena will be too exhausted to be nervous, and will just smack her groundies. It should be an entertaining match. :)

The thing I've learned about tennis is how much the mental aspect takes over.

I would watch Nadia and think - how she can not have better results?

I'm really encouraged by this. Nadia skipped the KC last fall to play a Tier IV, desperate to win a title, any title.
And she lost that week, in Thailand.

Now, she is very close to world #1.

Russia won the Davis Cup 3-2 over Argentina on Sunday as Marat Safin defeated Jose Acasuso 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to hand the nation a second trophy after a defeat of France in 2002.

Safin was mobbed by his overjoyed teammates even before he could reach the net to shake hands with Acasuso as the Argentine put a forehand into the net after saving one match point.

The tie was the fourth of the past six finals of the worldwide team competition to reach a deciding fifth rubber. Argentina also lost a final a quarter of a century ago in Cincinnati against the US.

Safin, a two-time Grand Slam winner and former number 1 who has struggled with knee problems, was thrown into the breach after David Nalbandia upset Nikolay Davydenko 6-2, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 to start the final day.

Safin showed his intentions to seal the tie as he swept up the opening set in 30 minutes, emphasizing his determination with 16 aces during the contest lasting nearly three hours.

"It was a tough fifth match," said the winner. "I was expecting Nikolay to win, but unfortunately he couldn't make it.

"Our captain decided to put me in the final match. I was struggling with my knees and my toes due to this (carpet) surface.

"There was a lot of pressure for me, but it all came out pretty well."

Acasuso fought back to level as he lifted the second set, only to see Safin regain the momentum as he lifted the third. The fourth went into a tiebreaker, with Safin reaching a 5-2 lead.

Acasuso recovered to 4-5 but a Safin service winner gave the Russian two match points to the thunderous cheers of a capacity crowd waving blue-red and white Russian flags.

As the celebrations began, non-playing Mikhail Youzhny led the jubilation. Former Russian president Boris Yeltsin, the nation's number 1 ticket holder, quickly got into the act, along with Safin's mother - his first coach - rushing onto court to hug her son.

"We tried to play our best game," Safin said. "Acasuo was playing well form the baseline. But my experience made the difference today.

"The crowd enjoyed it, and I'm pretty happy."

Safin called this Davis Cup title "the most valuable" compared to the one the side lifted over France four years ago.

Even though Russian tennis players in total didn't have a good 2008 Australian Open, I hope Maria Sharapova winning the women's Australian Open singles title is the first great moment in a great year of Russian tennis. I think the Russina's could have a very good year and I hope the Russian men do well but it will be hard for them because there are more good Russian women tennis players than there are good Russian men's tennis players. And the depth is much deeper in men's tennis making success for the Russian men harder to come by.

It's been a very good start to 2008 for the WTA Russian's. :) But I think the 2008 season can be great if a few of the Russina's outside the top 10 stay healthy, find their games and have good years. And I'm talking specifically about Petrova, Zvonareva, Safina and Kirilenko. I have no doubt that if the top 4 Russina's Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Chakvetadze and Dementieva stay healthy they will have very good years. But I think they will need some help from some of their lower ranked compatriots in order to rack up the titles and for this to be a great year for female Russian tennis.

How many titles Elena has given to the other russians ? :o

Elena is the rival that you want to see in a Final. Sad but true

9th title of the year.. Doing well.. Second title of year for Makiri, and both on her least favourite surface, no less.. Men also increased their tally. Incredible 14-4 record by Kolya in finals..

Dinara Safina wins Tier II LA for her 7th title.
Since the start of the red clay season, Dinara has been playing very solid. Tier I and II titles and a FO final.

Dushevina was runner up in Stockholm this week, losing to Wozniacki in the final. Bad luck Vera :(
