CANBERRA, Australia (Ticker) - When Paola Suarez (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/112/) plays in next week's Australian Open, she'll know she has given her nerves a good workout.

Suarez saved five match points against third-seeded Silvia Farina Elia (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/98/) of Italy on Saturday to win the Canberra Women's Classic.

The second-seeded Argentine edged Farina Elia, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), in two hours, 36 minutes in the final of this $110,000 hardcourt event. She earned $16,000 for her fourth WTA Tour title.

"I am very happy to win," Suarez said. "It was very close and a great final. Today, I think I am lucky. We are very close and we both have chances; today it goes my way."

Suarez never before had beaten Farina Elia in three meetings, also having played a tight match at Wimbledon last year.

"I just tried to be more aggressive," Suarez said. "But it was a tough match, she is a great player and like at Wimbledon, today's match could go either way."

Farina Elia fell behind, 3-0, in the first set, but won six straight games to take the set.

Suarez bounced back in the second set, taking a 5-1 lead. Farina Elia pulled within, 4-5, before Suarez served out the second set to even the match. Farina Elia broke serve in the sixth game and held for a 5-2 lead. Suarez saved one match point at 5-3 and four more in the tiebreaker. "She played great on the match points, I never really had a chance to try something different," Farina Elia said. "She played very aggressive on the big points - it was very tough."

Macmillan - No one seems to have mentioned another point, which was ruled in Suarez's favour, where she held up her hand in apology to Farina Elia for what seemed to be an incorrect decision.

By the way, I think that the call mentioned in the quotes was on one of the match points, rather than on the final match point.
