SINGLES - Stosur Holds Off Gavrilova To Win Strasbourg, Retain Aussie No. 1
Samantha Stosur won her ninth career title at the Internationaux de Strasbourg, holding off an impressive fight from countrywoman Daria Gavrilova to hang on to Australian No.1.

Australian No.1 Samantha Stosur hung on to her crown at the Internationaux de Strasbourg on Saturday, outlastint countrywoman Daria Gavrilova, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 to win her ninth career title.

"It’s great to win a title," Stosur told reporters after the match. "I was glad to be able to serve the match out very well. Sometimes that’s not an easy thing to do, especially in a final. But I felt like I was really composed and played very well. So I’m happy to get the lead and hold on in the end."

Winning the last match before Roland Garros kicks off on Sunday, Stosur recovered from a set down to win her second Strasbourg title in three years over her good friend and fellow Aussie after two hours and 45 minutes on court. "I definitely was expecting a tough match against Dasha. We know each other very well, and have practiced a lot together. She typically makes her opponents work very hard to beat her.

"I knew the match would probably be long and tiring, very physical, and she certainly made me work very hard for it. I tried to hang in there, especially when she was playing very well at the start of the match.

DOUBLES - Barty / Dellacqua Win Strasbourg Doubles
Strasbourg had Aussie flags waving all day as Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua kicked off Championship Saturday with a 6-4, 6-2 win over top seeds Chan Yung-Jan and Chan Hao-Ching. Barty and Dellacqua reached three Grand Slam doubles finals in 2013, and are back together after brief retirements and injuries sidelined each, respectively.

"It was a good win for the Aussies in doubles to start the day, and then it was obviously going to be a good day no matter what in the singles," Stosur noted. "Still, I’m very happy for Case and Ash."

SINGLES - Bertens Bags Back-To-Back Titles In Nürnberg
Kiki Bertens surrendered just three games against Barbora Krejcikova to win her second consecutive title at the Nürnberger Versicherungscup.

Top seed Kiki Bertens ended the Cinderella run of qualifier Barbora Krejcikova in the final of the Nürnberger Versicherungscup on Saturday, rolling to her third career WTA title, 6-2, 6-1.
In her last two appearances in Nürnberg, Bertens lost a total of one set in 12 matches. The current World No.19 came through qualifying to win the title last year for a total of seven victories, but was a dominant force as the top seed this year and never lost a set.
In a 56-minute final, the Dutchwoman largely overwhelmed her inexperienced opponent, who was playing her seventh match of the week and her first WTA singles final. The top seed ran off the last four games of the opener before sprinting to the finish line by winning the last five of the second set.
Though she served just over 50 percent for the match, Bertens was effective behind her delivery when it mattered, winning 84 percent of points behind her first serve and 74 percent of points played in her service games total.
Krejcikova had two chances to get the second set back on serve at 3-1, but Bertens hammered an ace - one of seven for the match - and drew an error after a lengthy rally en route to holding serve.
A semifinalist at Roland Garros in 2016, Bertens rounded into form at just the right time ahead of the season's second Grand Slam; after reaching the quarterfinals in Madrid, the Dutchwoman went one better in each of the two weeks to follow with a semifinal in Rome and the title in Nürnberg.
In the doubles final, American Nicole Melichar and Great Britain's Anna Smith claimed their first WTA title in dramatic fashion, rallying from a set down and saving a match point in the deciding tiebreak to defeat Kirsten Flipkens and Johanna Larsson, 3-6, 6-3, 11-9.

SINGLES - Wawrinka Retains Geneva Crown
Swiss notches first title of 2017

It was home cooking for Stan Wawrinka on Saturday at the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open, as the local favourite successfully defended his crown in the Swiss metropolis.
The top seed ousted Mischa Zverev 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 in two hours and 20 minutes to lift the trophy. Wawrinka, who was born in nearby Lausanne, improved to 9-1 in Geneva, having also prevailed last year (d. Cilic). Zverev denied 13 of 18 break points faced, but Wawrinka was clutch in the big moments.
It was the 16th tour-level title for the World No. 3 and first since winning the US Open last year. He takes home €85,945 in prize money and 250 Emirates ATP Rankings points.
"The level was great today, I think it was a great final," said Wawrinka. "Mischa was playing very well and maybe I was hesitating a bit in the beginning. I'm happy that I came back strongly in the second set and managed to turn the match around.
"I'm extremely happy to win my second title in Switzerland. It means a lot to me. This is the first time that my daughter is in the stadium when I win the title and that makes it even more special."

DOUBLES - Rojer-Tecau Save 1 MP For Geneva Title
Dutch-Romanian duo claim 14th team title

Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau came up clutch with their backs against the wall on Saturday at the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open, rallying for their 14th team title.
The Dutch-Romanian duo overcame a set deficit and survived a championship point at 6-5 in the second set tie-break, edging Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 2-6, 7-6(9), 10-6.
"It was a really tough match," said Rojer. "Robert and Sebas were playing well the whole week. They played better today for the majority of the match and this time we got a little lucky after going down match point. We're very happy with the win and it gives us a lot of confidence going into the French Open."
Tecau provided the big serves when they needed them, striking a service winner to turn aside the match point and another mammoth delivery to close out the tie-break at 10-9. The top-seeded tandem would claim the initial mini-break for 5-3 in the deciding Match Tie-break and never looked back, prevailing after one hour and 52 minutes.

SINGLES - Tsonga Stays Perfect With Lyon Crown
Frenchman improves to 3-0 in finals this season

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga celebrated a hat trick of ATP World Tour titles this season on Saturday, prevailing past Czech Tomas Berdych 7-6(2), 7-5 in the Open Parc Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Lyon final.
The title is Tsonga's first clay-court crown and his 15th overall title. The Frenchman improved to 3-0 in title matches this season, having also won back-to-back indoor crowns at Rotterdam and Marseille in February.
"I am very happy. First title on clay court. It is now added to my CV and I can move on. I am going to enjoy this title today and tomorrow. It has been a great week overall," Tsonga said.
Never before has Tsonga won more than three titles in a season, although he looks poised to break that mark this year. Tsonga also won a trio of titles in 2009.
He joins an elite group of ATP World Tour players who have already claimed three crowns this year: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and #NextGenATP star Alexander Zverev.

The championship team dropped only two sets all week. The title is Molteni's second ATP World Tour doubles crown, having also won the BB&T Atlanta Open doubles title with Horacio Zeballos last year.

I guess Margaret Court Arena will only have Mix doubles matches next year.

@BenRothenberg
Margaret Court's tired agenda of inequality carries on, unsolicited.
Another reason why stadiums shouldn't be named after living people

Tournament abbreviations

WC
= wildcard (given by the tournament to a player that could not get in on their ranking, or did not enter in time.

PR = protected ranking. This is used when a player has been out for a certain period of time due to injury (I think it's at least 6 months) and their ranking slips down to where they wouldn't get in on their current ranking.

Q = Qualifier.

A = Alternate. Used in qualifying when a player withdraws before their first match. Also used in main draw if there was no qualifying draw and the draw was full before the player withdrew.

LL = Lucky loser. A player that loses in qualifying (usually the final round unless none of the final round losers sign the lucky loser list) and gets into main draw when a main draw player withdraws before their first match.

SE = Special exempt. A player who signed into qualifying of a tournament, but was still playing in the previous week's tournament at the time the qualifying draw was done. This player can get a special exempt into the main draw the following week.
