Making Her Mother Proud

She did it. Rallying from a set down yet again, Dinara Safina dismissed compatriot Elena Dementieva 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 to win the German Open.

It's her first Tier 1 title. And having beaten Justine Henin and Serena Williams back-to-back in the earlier rounds, it's certainly well-deserved.

Her mother, her first coach if memory serves, must be smiling ear-to-ear.

Congratulations, Dinara! Very well deserved.

I'm a bit sad about Serena because she was playing really sharp in the earlier rounds. Hope she can recover for FO and put together a good run all the way to the finish line!
