Trophy Case: JJ Again.

Jelena Jankovic took home the title in Stuttgart, beating Nadia Petrova, 6-4, 6-3.

Tomas Berdych took advantage of an ailing JMDP and took the Japan Open title, 6-1, 6-4. Why can’t he win more often? He looks so delicious with that trophy.

In the women’s draw Caroline Wozniacki took home her third title of the year, beating Kaia Kanepi, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. Woo! Caro!

Dmitry Tursunov beat Paul Henri Mathieu for the Metz title, 7-6 (6), 1-6, 6-4.

Sorana Cirstea won her first career WTA Tour singles title at the Tashkent Open with an epic win over Sabine Lisicki, 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7).

Battle of the Oddly Attractive

Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin del Potro are really attractive in an odd way. I don’t know what it is, but they are. And they happen to be playing each other in the final of the AIG Japan Open tomorrow. JMDP took out Richard Gasquet in his semifinal match, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. He’s won 29 of his last 30 matches. In other words Juan has been on fire. Tomas Berdych upset Andy Roddick in the other semifinal, 6-7 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (3). Tomas is kind of like JMDP at the begining of the year, full of talent but lacking results. Tomas is just more of a headcase. Should be an interesting match up.
