Good for JJ. Instead of letting the #1 ranking drop in her lap by doing nothing, JJ actually won Stuttgart, beating Venus along the way. She beat Nads 64 63. She'll now have to decide whether to take the $98k winners check or the Porsche Carrera 4S. As JJ said, "I already have a Turbo, so why not the Carrera as well?" Why not, indeed.
You know, of the Mean Girls cast, she is SO Gretchen Weiner. Can't you imagine her saying "I'm sorry that people are so jealous of me. But I can't help it that I'm so popular." So fetch.
Go Ski Boots! She beat Kaia Kanepi 62 36 61 on her way to her third title in three months. But more importantly, she showed all us Adidas haters that you CAN win in that cursed outfit:
In the upset of the day, Tomas Berdych took out Crazy Train 61 64. Apparently JMDP had some sort of stomach virus and was running off the court to boot. But he got his legs back under him in the second set and all credit to Big Berd for staving off a few break points on his serve and finally holding for the win.
In Tashkent, Sorana Cirstea won her first WTA title, beating Sabine Lisiki 26 64 76(4). And in Metz, Dima gritted out a tough win over Paul Henri Mattieu, 76(8) 16 64.
