7-5, 6-3


Maria Sharapova and Jelena Jankovic win back to back titles, as well as being undefeated since before Wimbledon. It's no lie that now both have won a Grand Slam together, both are hungry to reach the top spot, and after todays win, they will be getting closer to that dream if they can continue their winning streak. Both are getting better and better as a Doubles Team and the chemistry they have is something very special. They aren't just best friends but are a doubles team that was meant to be. Jelena's vollying at the net is becoming frightening and both women's defence is becoming increasingly hard for any doubles team to break down. Henin and Rezai have also had a fantastic week and I hope that this Doubles duo continues! All attention goes to the Champs today! Congratulations Jelena and Masha!

Sharapova



Maria Sharapova (RUS) Def. (1) Nadia Petrova (RUS)

5-7, 6-4, 6-4


Maria Sharapova ended her fantastic week on a high with her second title on the ART Tour since Sydney! Sharapova put her critics to bed after a wonderful performance in the second and final set. Nadia played with so much fire, energy and confidence in the opening set making Sharapova run for every ball while breaking her early in the match. She kept all of her service games and looked in good form going into the second set. But Sharapova took more chances in the first game of the second set, as Nadia became more uncomfortable and started to fray in the long rallies the Russians were throwing at each other. Nadia left the second set mentally half way through as Maria gained more and more momentum! The Final set saw both Russians play some of their best tennis with some intense shot making and some breath taking rallies that left the Budapest crowd on the edge of their seats, however Sharapova finally stepped into another gear finally making a number of special winners that Nadia could not touch! The emotion from Sharapova after taking the title really showed to everyone in the tennis world how much tennis means to her as well as her reassurgance back to form. Is Maria finally ready for the big time?

Henin and Rezai


Justine Henin (BEL) and Aravane Rezai (FRA) Def. (4) Sabine Lisicki (GER) and Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)

6-3, 2-6, 7-5


Well no one would have thought it especially Rezai and Henin who had decided to enter the doubles tournament as a last resort and as Henin had quoted earlier in the week, 'a little bit of fun'. With no pressure on these ladies this week they have become quite the doubles team in Budapest. Aravane's aggressive play from the baseline has proved wonders for Henin who has been smashing struggling opponents returns at the net for some easy wins and some incredible winners. They were put to the limit today from one of the tours top stars Sabine Lisicki and Svetlana Kuznetsova, who at times looked like they had the match in their grasp, but Rezai and Henin kept coming back for more and managed to make a well deserved win that pits them in the Final against Wimbledon Champs and No.1 seeds Maria Sharapova and Jelena Jankovic!

(1) Sharapova and Jankovic


(1) Maria Sharapova (RUS) and Jelena Jankovic (SRB) Def. Dinara Safina (RUS) and Elena Vesnina (RUS)

6-4, 6-3


After a fantastic singles match both BFF's put the match behind them and got to work and business out on court against the returning duo of Safina and Vesnina. Jankovic and Sharapova were so impressive and are on a winning streak of 7 matches not losing to any Doubles team since before Wimbledon. With a Grand Slam already to both their names, making it through to a second consecutive Final, are both ladies on their way to becoming No.1 in the world. There is no doubt that the current No.1 Anna Chakvetadze has and is having a phenomanal year in both singles and Doubles and it will take a lot more wins to dethrone her. But there is no doubt that if Masha and JJ win another title her back to back, then they are on their way in entering the top 2, if the dominance continues!

Sharapova


Maria Sharapova (RUS) Def. Jelena Jankovic (SRB)

6-4, 7-5


It was a tough battle for both BFF's out on court today, but it was Maria Sharapova who came out as the victor today making it through to another Final, her second since Sydney. There is no question that since Wimbledon Maria has got over her lingering shoulder injury returning to the tour all fired up, ready and passionate about her tennis. She is playing like a new woman at the moment and when Maria was on it like she was today, then there is no stopping the resiliant Russian. Jankovic played some great tennis, but Sharapova's winning factor in the match was the winners that she was able to put away against Jelena who found it hard compared to her doubles partner to put opportunities of winners presented to her hard to put away. All Russian Final will commence in Budapest, as well as an all Chinese Final in Copenhagen!
