Sunday Titlists: Guangzhou, Quebec

Posted by gauloises1 on September 21, 2009

So I have massively shortchanged the two WTA International-level tournaments going on this week, mainly by not mentioning them at all. But they happened!

Guangzhou

shahar trophy guangzhou

Shahar Peer picked up her first title since Istanbul 2006, defeating first-time finalist Alberta Brianti 63 62 for her fourth singles title.

Well done to both girls. And that’s all I have to say about that.

Quebec

czink trophy quebec

A maiden singles title for Melinda Czink, who took out Aleksandra Wozniak in the semi-finals and benefited from the defending champion Nadia Petrova’s retirement in the quarters due to viral illness.

Czink did really well though, beating Lucie Safarova 46 63 75 in an all-lefty final.

And I’m out of things to say about this. Oh – wait – those trophies look seriously crappy. OK, now I’m out.

    Am I the only one who had absolutely no idea there were women’s tournaments going on this week?

    Also, I’m pretty sure I got something eerily similar to those trophies when I was five from a gift bag at a birthday party.

    Well, I knew, but I couldn’t quite find it in myself to care … needed a little recuperation period after the US Open. Plus I was very busy wittering about Elf.

    OMG the Quebec trophies look like those electric fly-swatter tennis racquets that you can buy in Asia… lots of fun zapping flies, mozzies, and your friends… still makes for a seriously crappy trophy though….
    G, you really must do a crappy trophy article one day. there are lots of them around.

    I’m ashamed to say whenever I read the word ‘titlists’ I pronounce it all wrong in my head.
