Perfect Record



Anna Chakvetadze has never lost a Sony Ericsson WTA tour final. Today, she dismissed Agnes Szavay 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 to win the Open Gaz de France, commonly called the Paris Indoors.

Seven championships. Seven trophies. I wonder where she will rank this trophy, the actual tangible thing you see her holding in her hands above. What is that thing anyway?

In the Pattaya Women's Open championship, Agnieszka Radwanska beat American Jill Craybas 6-2, 1-6, 7-6(4).

For a summary of the Davis Cup, read Savannah. I may have something to say about what I saw today in my next Tuesday Tirade. We'll see.
