Amelie is one of those players who thrive on confidence once her confidence gets going, there is nothing to stop here. This was a huge win for her. It looks like the William Sisters are very vulnerable right now. Especially with the French Open right around the corner.

Kim Clijsters picked up her third title of the season on Sunday by defeating France's Amelie Mauresmo 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 in the final of the Italian Open.


Mauresmo, who beat Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams to reach the championship game, served for the match at 6-5 in the second set but Clijsters stormed back from 30-15 down to force a tie-break.

Man it looked like a tough game and could have gone either way But Kim came on strong to win again..!

Top seed Chanda Rubin fulfilled expectations by winning the Madrid 2012 Spanish Open, but she made hard work of the final against Spaniard Maria Antonia Sanchez-Lorenzo.

America's world number eight Rubin eventually won 6-4 5-7 6-4 against 84th-ranked Sanchez in a match lasting two hours and 11 minutes.

After taking the first set 6-4 with the only break, Rubin appeared to be heading for a straightforward victory after she broke Sanchez to love in the third and the fifth games of the second set.

The women seem to be catching up with the williams sisters now as they are winning tournaments and the williams are not..The big one will be the French open comming up soon..!

Woah now that is some great news. That means at tournament that it wont be an all william final. That is awesome so now we are guarnteed that. hehehhehe. The gap closed a lot because sernea didnt win the tournament again. And when that happens you lose points. That is why at times the women's point system is bad, and at times it is good.

Hmm i think venus wont do that good her form isnt that great at the moment...

Serena isnt playing that bad and she is more unpredictable so i think serena could at least get through to the quarter finals...

But who knows they might come up against some players on top of their form and go out early or find themselves playing some great tennis...

French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne suffered a pre-Wimbledon injury scare on Saturday when she hurt her left hand and had to retire hurt during her final against Kim Clijsters at the Ordina Open.

Just two days before Wimbledon fortnight begins, the Belgians were contesting the title match in what was a repeat of their final at Roland Garros a fortnight ago.

Henin-Hardenne, a right-handed player, had taken the first set on a tie-break to make a promising start.

But she suffered the injury to the fingers of her left hand when slipping and tumbling over on the grass surface early in the second set, and her performance was clearly hampered during the next two games.

After falling 3-0 behind, the world number three told the match umpire she would have to quit the match due to extreme pain in each finger on her left hand.

Event organisers stressed that the injury would not necessarily force her out of Wimbledon where she was runner-up in 2001 to Venus Williams of the United States.

Chanda Rubin pledged to launch her best-ever Wimbledon bid after retaining the Hastings Direct title at Eastbourne with a 6-4 3-6 6-4 victory over Spanish veteran Conchita Martinez.

The 1994 Wimbledon champion Martinez, 31, may have to pull out of the event, where she is seeded 18.

She faces an x-ray on her damaged wrist before the first-round clash with Venezuelan qualifier Milagros Sequera.

American star Rubin, the world number seven, had to keep her cool through a two-and-a-half-hour delay caused by a bomb hoax call which forced officials to clear Eastbourne's Devonshire Park of 4,500 fans.

Then she had to battle against her own erratic serve as well as a string of frustrating interruptions while Martinez was treated for wrist and thigh problems.

Kim Clijsters battled back from a set down to beat Jennifer Capriati 4-6 6-4 6-2 in the final of the Bank of the West Classic in California.

The second-seeded Belgian finally overpowered Capriati in one hour 55 minutes to win her fifth title of the year.

The third seed had won her first three encounters with Clijsters - including their thrilling 2001 French Open final, which featured a 12-10 third set.

But the last four meetings have gone three sets, with Clijsters winning the last two.

"You don't really start thinking how long you're going to play," Clijsters said. "It's true, in the past we've had so many long matches and always long rallies.

"It's very satisfying to win matches like this, not only the mental part, but physically."

The 20-year-old Belgian took over the WTA Tour lead in tournament victories - one more than top-ranked Serena Williams and French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne.
