Eastbourne & Ordina Open: Titlists

Posted by gauloises1 on June 20, 2009

Kind of hard to imagine any of these four (apart from Wozniacki) making a real run at Wimbledon. But hey, splendour in the grass is not to be sneezed at.

Caroline Wozniacki beat Virginie Razzano 76(5) 75 in a really tight straight sets final. It was interesting as Virginie was definitely the better player for large stretches of the match and in fact ended with more winners than UFEs, Caroline having the reverse. Still, Wozniacki did what she is getting really good at; hanging in there and winning for her fifth WTA title and the first on grass.

Wonder if she can emulate last year’s winner Radwanska and make it to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon?

Cute moment in the ceremony when Razzano forgot her name:

Ah, those crazy Frenchwomen. They make things fun,

On the men’s side, Tursunov topped Frank “Rhythm is a” Dancevic 63 76(5) for his first title of the year.

In Den Bosch, Tanasugarn’s bewildering relationship with the Ordina Open continued as she beat Wickmayer 63 75, and German qualifier Benjamin Becker disappointed the home crowd by knocking out the wildcard Sluiter, 75 63 (spooky!) for his first title.

Becker has a Dali face, that’s what I learned today.

Well done everyone and so forth. Now get your asses to Wimbledon, please. Word has it there’s an opening.

    The Wozniacki/Razzano match was fun to watch. It’s too bad Razzano didn’t win cause she was quite brilliant, but had a few too many botched drop shots a la Nole. Those two seemed to have a lot of fun too, they were friendly after the match.

    Congrats to Tanasugaran, I’m not Thai, but they am somewhat related to Thai people, so it’s nice to see her success.

    YAY TAMMY!!!!LOL…and i suppose….yay for Caro (only cos she’s my GA and i now hate Virginie for stepping on my Marion!!LOL)……
    i think all 4 ladies will actually do well at wimbly…Virginie (if she dont get headcasey) has a load of brits and bepa in her section…..
    Tammy is just a grass fiend….and u can regularly automatically place her in at least the 3rd round…..
    Caro has a nice draw to the QF….as does Wicky maybe even to the SF!!!LOL

    men……meh
