Many congrats to Jarmila Groth, who clinched her first title in Guangzhou and will crack the Top 50 for the first time of her career. She's had a great summer, reaching the round of 16 at both RG and Wimbledon (whichismorethanIcansayforSambutwhateverI'moverit) and had a pretty dominant tournament, dropping only 10 games on the way to the final and firing 11 aces against Alla to win.
Her reward? A vase for her flowers and a first round match against Nadia in Seoul. Ouch.
And Tamira beat Bethanie to capture her second title in Quebec City. I'm really bummed for Bethanie. She's just such a tour stalwart and she had a heartbreaking USO. Would have loved to see her pick up a title here.
