And The Winners Are: Simon Wins In Metz, Kleybanova in Seoul

Metz Final: G. Simon def. M. Zverev 6-3 6-2

After over a year of injury woes, it’s great to see Gilles healthy and back playing well. He has a few points to defend between now and the end of the year, but if he can continue to keep on improving his form and confidence, it will put him in a good position going into 2011.

His girlfriend, Carine was also present and she was crying after he won. Gilles went into the crowd and they hugged it out for about an hour, maybe longer. He spoke in his speech about how tough the last year has been with all the injury problems as well as Carine herself and their new son, Timothy. They seem very happy.

Seoul Final: A. Kleybanova def. K. Zakopalova 6-1 6-3

Big things were expected of Kleybs this year. Though I have been skeptical myself, it is still good to see her playing well again. Also a good tournament for Kookie (Klara’s surname used to be Koukalova). She has had a pretty good year herself; reaching the second week of Wimbledon out of nowhere, and it’s nice to see her rising again.

Tashkent Final: A. Kudryavtseva def. E. Vesnina 6-4 6-4

Princess Alla wins her first title. Elena fails. Sadly, I’m beginning to doubt if Elena will ever get that first title. It’s reminiscent of Elena the greater when she reaches slam finals.

Bucharest Final: J. Chela def. P. Andujar 7-5 6-1
