Tournament Update

6 players have withdrawn from zonals. Golovin, Chakvetadze, Hantuchova, Schnyder, S.Williams and Peer

Normally, the entries would go unchanged, I find this to be a unique circumstance. 2 of the tournaments have 4 entrances with the other 2 with only 2 entrances. Entries are changed as follows so that there are 3 in each tournament.

Madison Brengle
Hobart ---> Gold Coast

Ashley Harkleroad
Auckland ---> Adelaide

Joey (tennisbuddy12), I have moved your players because you didn't play in Grand Playoff, and I the players that withdrew also didn't play so it's a logical substitute.

HOBART

Anastasia Myskina def. Ai Sugiyama 6-7(5),7-6(7)*,6-3

GOLD COAST

Caroline Wozniacki def. Dominika Cibulkova 0-6,7-6(6),6-0

AUCKLAND

Maria Sharapova def. Olga Poutchkova 0-6,7-5,6-0

ADELAIDE

Maria Kirilenko def. Bethanie Mattek 7-6(6),6-0



Anastasia and Ai had a great match in Hobart today. Ai doesn't like the hardcourts as much and Myskina and she came real close to beating her. She had a match point at 7-6(5),6-6(7-6), but Myskina won the next three points in the tiebreak to close the second. And Ai drifted away in the third.

Congrats to Myskina and also Wozniacki, Sharapova and Kirilenko who have put themselves at 1-0.​

HOBART

Ivanovic def. Sugiyama 4-6,7-6(6),6-4

GOLD COAST

Wozniacki def. Brengle 6-7(2),7-6(1),7-6(7)*

AUCKLAND

Craybas def. Sharapova 6-0,0-6,7-6(4)

ADELAIDE

Mattek def. Harkleroad 6-0,0-6,7-5



Caroline Wozniacki is our first titlist on the WIFCT tour. She'll go on to face someone who lost in Sydney for an Antwerp berth. She dropped the opening set in a tiebreak, and was down 4-5 and 5-6 in the second, but when it got to the tiebreak she was dominant. The final tiebreak was so close, both were getting match points, but Caroline held her nerve and with a lucky net cord, advances.

Congrats also to Ivanovic, Craybas and Mattek.

Hobart champion will be decided by the winner of Myskina vs Ivanovic
Gold Coast champion IS Caroline Wozniacki
Auckland champion will be
1.) Craybas if she wins, or she loses in three not meeting the critera below
2.) Poutchkova if she wins in straight sets, or in three if she wins with set scores of 0-6,6-0 and the other set less than 7-5
Adelaide champion will be
1.) Kirilenko if she wins, or if she loses in three
2.) Harkleroad if she wins in straight sets​

FINAL ROUND

HOBART

Myskina def. Ivanovic 6-4,6-7(6),7-6(3)

GOLD COAST

Cibulkova def. Brengle 6-0,7-6(0)

AUCKLAND

Craybas def. Poutchkova 7-5,0-6,6-0

ADELAIDE

Harkleroad def. Kirilenko 0-6,6-4,6-3



Jill played some smart tennis in Auckland this week. She scraped by Sharapova in round 2, and almost dropped out of today's match against Poutchkova. But she came back in the third to advance to the playoffs.

Joining her in the playoffs are Hobart Champion Anastasia Myskina, Gold Coast Champion Caroline Wozniacki and Adelaide Champion Maria Kirilenko.

Adelaide was a tough tournament. Kirilenko sealed the win when she won the first set against Harkleroad today.​
