Sunday Titlists: Dementieva, Soderling, Zvonareva

Time has kind of made me its bitch tonight. FYI.
Elena Dementieva d. Lucie Safarova, 67(5) 61 64
Huge congratulations to Elena. She had some tough opponents to deal with, none more so than Lucie. The third set was really great stuff and should be taken as a smack in the face to all those who say that the WTA doesn’t produce good finals. That Elena burst into tears when she won really showed how much it meant to her.
And just when things couldn’t get more heartwarming, Momo presented her with the trophy.
Robin Soderling d. Mikhail Youzhny, 64 20 ret.
Poor, poor Mikhail Youzhny. He played so well to beat Nole in the semis (just like he did to beat Gasquet at the AO), then once again injury strikes him down. He was clearly heartbroken. Sad face.
A hearty ‘yay’ to Robin Soderling though. He had a nightmare at Chennai and the AO and a lot of people have been questioning whether he would be able to back up last year’s career-best achievements. Well, he’s not doing badly so far.
Vera Zvonareva d. Tamarine Tanasugarn, 64 64
Welcome back to the winner’s circle, Vera.
