Magda wins ITF-tournaments

It put a big smile on my face when I learned that the beautiful Magda won two ITF-titles in the last three weeks! This boosts her ranking from #216 to #165, and is a step closer to the 19-year-old playing regularly on the WTA Tour as opposed to the ITF Women's Circuit.

If Magda could do that, then she just might possibly become the next player I will induct into my Eternal Fanship. The Passion's there, but I also require Reason.

Keothavong loses in final [Teletext 498]

British No.2 Anna Keothavong lost in the final of the $50,000 ITF-tournament in Patra to Magdaléna Rybáriková.

The fourth seed was defeated by the 19-year-old from Slovakia - ranked 81 places below Keothavong at world No.216 - 6-3 7-5 to claim the title in Greece.

Victory would have provided Keothavong with her second title of the year following her triumph in Capriolo, Italy, in February.
