Luxembourg F: (WC) Ostapenko df. (2) Goerges 6-4 6-1

Clinical from Alona, she's a joy to watch when she plays this way - and even her serve was working today. Back inside the top 50 after such a challenging season, too. Well done on title #3 Julia

good soulfood for Alona
Jule's serve was quite ineffective today

Well-deserved for Ostapenko, and for Bartoli too. I can't imagine a much better advertisement for your talents as a coach than turning 2019 Ostapenko into a consecutive tournament finalist and netting her her first title in over two years.

For Jelena herself, I'm so happy. She's had an extremely tough year and she's kept plugging away, giving herself chances and playing week in, week out (including in doubles). It's wonderful to see her in the winner's podium again.

Sad for Jules on the other hand, but she put up an excellent defense of her title. The other girls could learn a lot from her in that department.

Penko Power.

With Penko in this form Jules serve really had to be 100%. Once the rallies started she was usually toast.

Yessssssss . I don't even consider myself to be a fan of Jelena but it was ridiculous how low she had fallen and she's good for the WTA like I keep saying, so I hope she can carry this momentum into the next season . It almost wouldn't shock me to see her play the Dubai challenger in December since she seems willing to step down and will probably want more wins, but maybe that will be overkill now that she just won a title. Her third .

Very nice of Julia to give her a hug at the net .

6 aces and 0 DFs... are we sure this is Penko playing?

The confidence and hence serve has been the main improvement these last 2 tournaments, the groundstrokes have always been there. Good work from psychologist coach Bartoli I'm curious to see how 2020 will go for Penko.

Great two weeks for Penko to end her awful season on a good note. If she's going to serve like that all the time, the other girls are finished lol I wonder if this partnership is going to hold up, so far it looks great. Their OCCs are already iconic.

Not a double at all today, though 6 aces, 71% first serves in and 83% won behind it.

80% Goerges first serves in a set and she lost it?

Brutally good match from Penko.

Peak Ostapenko, I'm in love! The serve and groundstrokes were on fire, and she played the big points especially well. Keep playing like this forever, please!

Everything came together for Aljona: A super-fast indoor court, Marion in her corner, playing another big hitter (as opposed to yet another defensive player) ... and her serve was as good as it's been in ages*.

Re: Luxembourg F: (WC) Ostapenko df. (2) Goerges 6-4 6-1

Osta is back with a vengeance — there is no "off" position on the talent switch.... only "pauze".




By the way what on earth is Luxembourg language that they are speaking in the ceremony? It's just sounds exactly like German, except with the French "merci" thrown in it. Crazy shit.
