The first set of the final seemed like a mismatch: Bondarenko managed only 10 points the entire set. But she was able to hang tougher in the second, trading breaks with Henin in the early goings and falling behind just one break near the end. Overall it was a top performance by the Belgian, who added to her previous 2007 titles, from Dubai and Doha. I lost my intensity in the second set when I was ahead 2-0; things were coming a little too easy, and I lost my focus, Henin said. But at the end of the match I got my intensity back and was able to step into the court again. It was my first time playing Justine, Bondarenko said. I was a little bit nervous in the first set, but then I started playing better in the second. Next time, I hope to play much better. The championship match was originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon, but incessant rain caused the final to be pushed to Monday, the first time this season that situation arose. There wasn't much to do, Bondarenko said on the lengthy delay. I wanted to read but I had finished all the books I brought with me! It was boring; I didn't have anything to do, Henin said. I spent some time with my coach and my friends here, some time on the internet. There's nothing you can do in this situation; you have to go on court when you can. I knew I was in a better position than her in this situation because of my experience. I never had to play a final a day late but I knew how to prepare. Nevertheless, both players took away happy memories: Henin won a second J&S Cup, having first won the title in 2005, and made a winning start to her 2007 clay court campaign; Bondarenko made her way into the final of a Tier II for the second time, having won Luxembourg last fall, and earned her first Top 10 win against No.5 Svetlana Kuznetsova in the semis. It was hard yesterday; it's a bit sad when you have to play a final on Monday morning, Henin is the first player to win three titles this season, having won back-to-back trophies at Dubai and Doha. Action Images / Reuters Henin commented, but I'm really happy to have won my second title here. It's good preparation for the rest of the clay court season. I hope I can keep playing like this and get a few more matches in me before the French. I enjoyed my experience, reaching the final and playing Justine, Bondarenko said, but next time, I hope to play better. I'll talk this over with my coach and sister, who were watching the match, and we'll figure something out. Henin's win was by no means the only big story of the tournament; the semifinal marathon between the Belgian and Jelena Jankovic captivated the crowds for over two and a half hours Saturday and several other players came out of the woodworks earlier in the week, including Mara Santangelo, who notched her second Top 10 win of the year with a straight set defeat of Nadia Petrova. But another Top 10 win was perhaps the most resonant. Julia Vakulenko upset Kim Clijsters in the second round, a match that would end up being the Belgian's last - the former world No.1 announced her retirement from the Tour Sunday. The doubles final was played Sunday, but moved indoors. Unseeded Russian-Ukrainian combo Vera Dushevina and Tatiana Perebiynis downed No.2 seeds Elena Likhovtseva and Elena Vesnina, both Russians,

2 NOTES & NETCORDS THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF THE SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR ESTORIL, Portugal - She was one of the lowest-ranked players in the main draw - in fact, she wasn't even seeded in qualifying. But German Greta Arn never stopped believing, and Sunday afternoon the 28-year-old finally captured her career-first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title at the Estoril Open, beating out Belarussian teenager Victoria Azarenka in a nail-biting three set final, (3). Arn, who had figured her way out of three qualifying matches, as well as four more in the main draw, dramatically changed her approach after getting overpowered in a lopsided, 35-minute first set. She started mixing up her shots, throwing in more topspin and slice; the plan worked, and soon the two were headed for a third. The momentum continued early in the decider as Arn quickly went ahead 3-0; but Azarenka adjusted and began hitting the mark again on her big groundstrokes. She took five of the next six games and held two match points whilst leading 5-4; but again the momentum shifted. The German weathered it and eventually took the title, closing the two-hour, 22-minute ordeal out in a tie-break. I won today with my experience, Arn said. I tried to give her the balls she wouldn't like, high balls; she s young and made some mistakes an older, more experienced player probably wouldn't do. She was very consistent and tough and got me out of my game, Azarenka said afterwards. I am disappointed; I can't bring it back, though I wish I could. I was so nervous because it was my first chance for a title. I need experience on how to handle it. As an unseeded player, Azarenka made an unlikely run herself. She had a pair of impressive wins over seeds, namely No.2 Francesca Schiavone and No.3 Lucie Safarova, and also put out two players that barely missed out on the seeds, Virginie Razzano and last week's Budapest winner Gisela Dulko. The Belarussian could have become the youngest player this season to capture a title. Greta The Great Conquers Estoril 2007 SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR FINALS (as of May 7, 2007) Arn surged from No.176 to No.106 after the title, almost re-entering the Top 100. Action Images / Reuters Both Arn and Azarenka were contesting their first finals; not such a stretch for a 17-year-old up-and-comer, but quite a notable feat for the veteran Arn, whose best showing at a Tour event prior to this past week was a quarterfinal at Basel in The German is the most unlikely singles titlist on the Tour so far this year now - the lowest-ranked (she came in at No.176) and the first qualifier. The feeling you can not explain, Arn said. I am happy and just enjoying it. It's so nice. You start believing in yourself more, and it is just such a positive feeling; positive feelings change you. Andreea Ehritt-Vanc and Anastassia Rodinova won the doubles title Saturday, beating Lourdes Domínguez Lino and Arantxa Parra Santonja comprehensively, It is the second Tour doubles trophy for both women; they won their firsts with other partners.

3 NOTES & NETCORDS THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF THE SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR UOTES OF THE WEEK I hope people won't be too sad now... A new chapter in my life is about to begin and I hope I'll see everyone somewhere down the line. Remember, whatever you do, do it with a smile on your face. Some of Kim Clijsters thoughts for her many, many fans, from the personal message she wrote for her official Web site. The Belgian, a former world No.1 and Grand Slam winner, retired on Sunday. She's the best player I've ever beaten. I was a little bit surprised I won because she was playing well. Also I had some problems with my arm. I enjoy playing against the top players; I wasn't nervous. Julia Vakulenko, after upsetting Clijsters in her opening match at Warsaw, a match that would end up being the Belgian s last. The Ukrainian grabbed her career-first victory over a Top 10 player. Returning after three broken ribs and not having played for eight weeks is really difficult. It takes some time to get everything back. Elena Dementieva, after her first round win in Warsaw. The Russian hadn t contested an event since her injury in Antwerp in February. I've already played more matches than I played last year. But now I'm excited every time I'm out on the court. It's just wonderful to be doing what I love again. Tennis is the first thing I do every day. Venus Williams after a first round win over Krajicek at Warsaw. The American is still playing her way back into match form after a wrist injury sidelined her for most of last summer until this spring. WIN OF THE WEEK Alona Bondarenko (UKR #40) d. (3) Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS #5) 62 76(4) Semifinals, J&S Cup (Warsaw) With the early round exit of No.2 seed Kim Clijsters, everyone was anticipating a championship final between top seed and clay court legend Justine Henin and No.3 seed and three-time J&S Cup runner-up Svetlana Kuznetsova; but Alona Bondarenko spoiled that expectation, taking out Kuznetsova in straight sets in the semifinals. The No.40-ranked Bondarenko allowed a 5-3 second set lead to dissipate as Kuznetsova rallied back to force a tie-break, but it was not enough in the end, and the Ukrainian notched her career-first Top 10 victory over the No.5-ranked Russian. I surprised myself, Bondarenko said after the semifinal upset. I just tried to play my game and concentrate on every point and not think about the last point, or her game. I wasn't playing so well in the first set but started to play my best in the second. HONORABLE MENTION () Julia Vakulenko (UKR #61) d. (2) Kim Clijsters (BEL #4) 76(3) 63 (Warsaw Second Round): The Ukrainian fought through three qualifying rounds and a first round match to get to Clijsters, then managed her first career Top 10 victory against the now-retired Belgian. She trailed 4-2 in the first set and was also down a break early in the second but never gave up en route to the two set win.

Also, she only has runner-up points to defend from Berlin last year before the year s second Grand Slam. Henin first ascended to No.1 on October 20, 2003; although she became the first player in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour history to lose her new top rank a week later, she returned to No.1 on November 10, 2003, holding it until September 12, 2004, after the US Open. That was 45 weeks in total. She re-ascended on November 13, 2006, after winning the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships, holding it for 11 more weeks to bring her total to 56. During Miami, Henin racked up her 57th and 58th weeks at No.1, passing Williams for No.7 on the all-time list, and now she earns her 64th. She has a ways to go to catch up with No.6 on the list, Davenport, who has a total of 98. But Henin is in a good position to hang onto No.1 in the clay season; until Roland Garros, the Belgian did not win a single title on the dirt during last season. This chart lists the 15 women to have held No.1 in order of longevity, all numbers dating from November 3, 1975, when the computer rankings began, through the week of May 7, 2007: No.1 SINGLES RANKING HOLDERS Steffi Graf Martina Navratilova Chris Evert Martina Hingis Monica Seles Lindsay Davenport Justine Henin Serena Williams Amélie Mauresmo Tracy Austin Kim Clijsters Jennifer Capriati Maria Sharapova Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario Venus Williams *377 weeks 331 weeks 262 weeks 209 weeks 178 weeks 98 weeks 64 weeks 57 weeks 39 weeks 22 weeks 19 weeks 17 weeks 14 weeks 12 weeks 11 weeks 17 August July November March March October October July September April August October August February February 2002 Julia Vakulenko (UKR) No.61 to No.53 Nearing Top 50 debut; having reached her career-high of No.51 for one week in April, the Ukrainian makes another move towards the Top 50 after a quarterfinal showing at the Tier II event in Warsaw Victoria Azarenka (BLR) No.68 to No.55 New career-high; Belarussian teenager rises to a new career-high and nears the Top 50 after reaching her career-first Tour singles final at Estoril, finishing runner-up to Arn in a tight three-setter Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR) No.80 to No.67 New career-high; Alona s younger sister also shoots up rankings after qualifying and reaching the second round at Tier II Warsaw, where she fell to eventual semifinalist Kuznetsova in three sets Edina Gallovits (ROU) No.101 to No.92 New career-high; spends second week in Top 100, having been No.98 for one week in April, after capturing second ITF Circuit title of season (12th of career) at $50,000 ITF/Charlottesville, VA-USA Greta Arn (GER) No.176 to No.106 Nearing Top 100 return; German veteran surges back to highest ranking since 2003 Australian Open fortnight, after capturing her first Tour singles title at the Tier IV event in Estoril; prior to Estoril, had never been beyond the quarterfinals of a Tour singles event Nuria Llagostera Vives (ESP) No.410 to No.264 Spaniard rises nearly 150 spots after reaching first semifinal of her injury comeback at Estoril; missed last eight months of last season with right wrist injury, and has been working her way back up since HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

5 NOTES & NETCORDS THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF THE SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR One of the most popular players to have ever graced the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, Belgium s Kim Clijsters, announced her retirement on Sunday, May 6, effective immediately. Clijsters' last match was a 76(3) 63 loss to the Ukraine's Julia Vakulenko in the opening round of the J&S Cup in Warsaw, Poland on May 3, I'm extremely proud of what I've achieved in my career, she said in a message to her fans. If someone told me nine years ago I would have accomplished all that I did, I would have said you were joking. Tennis has been an amazing journey for me all over the world and I'm very happy to have met the people I did. That's always been the most important to me; forget the trophies and material things, friends are truly the most important. I couldn't have done all I did without the support of my family and coaches who worked with me, and to them I'm truly grateful. I am also thankful to all the encouragement from the fans over the years and the media's support in following my career. I couldn't have asked for a better farewell than I got in Antwerp; trying to play after that was proving more difficult. With injuries that wouldn't go away and life after tennis drawing nearer, it became harder to push myself to compete. Tennis-wise, winning the US Open and season-ending Championships twice were obvious high points. The matches that I'll never forget were the 1999 US Open match with Serena, when I was 5-3 up in the third. I had such goose bumps it was incredible. I remember playing Amélie in Filderstadt one year, coming from match point down to win, but the tennis we both played that day was amazing. I hope people won't be too sad now that I've decided to stop playing tennis. A new chapter in my life is about to begin and I hope I'll see everyone somewhere down the line. Remember, whatever you do, do it with a smile on your face." Kim Clijsters will be remembered as one of the most accomplished and loved players in the history of women's professional tennis, said Sony Ericsson WTA Tour CEO Larry Scott. No player has been so unanimously popular with fans and fellow players alike. She has been a once-in-a-generation champion. Kim's contribution to popularizing the sport in her native Belgium, as well as globally, is well-known. Athletic and determined on the court, Kim has also been a wonderful ambassador for the sport off of it and she will be much missed by her legions of fans, fellow players and everyone connected with the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Clijsters was renowned for her athleticism, including her sliding on hardcourts. Action Images / Reuters NEWS BRIEFS Clijsters calls it a career Among Clijsters career highlights are the 2005 US Open title, attaining the No.1 ranking in both singles and doubles, a total of 34 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour titles in singles (including one earlier this year in Sydney) and 11 in doubles. Action Images / Reuters Compatriot and long-time rival Justine Henin said, I have a lot of respect for what she did in her career, as a player and person. We've almost grown up together and we've helped each other to reach another level because we always pushed each other to play better. I think it's been a good concurrence for us. She's been a great player; it's time for her now to turn the page and do something else in her life and everyone has to respect that. She did a lot for the game, for Belgian tennis for sure, and I ll have great memories of her that I ll keep. It's pretty emotional because we spent a lot of time together when we were young and we grew up together on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. It's a very special day today. Amélie Mauresmo said, She had been thinking about retiring for a while so I'm sure she s convinced it's the right decision for her. The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and players will miss her a lot, not just because of the player she was but the joy she brought everyone. I wish her the best in her new life. Personally I always enjoyed our rivalry because it brought the best out in both of us. Reigning Australian Open winner Serena Williams said, I wish Kim the best in her life after tennis. She was a great player, a great competitor and an even better person. We had great matches but I'll miss her more in the locker room than from anything else. While I wish Kim well in her next life, I wish she kept playing for selfish reasons - Kim was fun to watch, a great scrambler and playmaker, Martina Navratilova said. I feel her best tennis was yet to be played. Unfortunately we will not see it, as Kim fell in love and tennis is the loser here. Kim is a class act on and off the court. She was a great champion; I'm going to be glad she's not around anymore as she kept beating me in the quarters of the Slams when I came back, said current world No.7 Martina Hingis. But seriously, I hope she'll have a great time in her life after tennis. I always said that when the Williamses were at their best, she was the only one then physically who could maybe beat them. I also think you should never count her out; look at me, I came back, and she's still very young. She could have more tennis left in her.

6 NOTES & NETCORDS THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF THE SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR Pro athletes have lots of power in the media, and delivering positive messages to the world through that channel is something continuously being explored. That was exactly what was on the minds of 12 star athletes in recent months, and Athletes For Hope was officially launched. The mission of the foundation is simple - to educate, encourage and assist athletes in their efforts to contribute to community and charitable causes, to increase public awareness of those powerful efforts, and to inspire others to do the same. Athletes for Hope will work with athletes, teaching them how to go about giving back effectively; the corporations that seek the marquee names to enhance their philanthropic efforts will benefit from the foundation, which will help suitable matches find each other. Two of the 12 founding members come from the tennis world: Andre Agassi and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour great Andrea Jaeger. Jaeger, who was ranked as high as No.2 in the early 1980s, has been running the Silver Lining Foundation in Aspen, Colorado for kids suffering from cancer since 1990; the Athletes For Hope idea was the latest calling for the 41-year-old Chicago native. Everyone thinks about pro athletes fine-tuning their muscles; everyone has a calling to fine-tune their heart, pass on their passion, Jaeger said on Good Morning America. Our organizations started with a thought, a dream, an idea. We need people to help us. We need to gather together to help young ones out there learn about what's important: the humanitarian and charitable efforts. Agassi founded The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation in NEWS BRIEFS Jaeger, Agassi among Athletes For Hope collective 1994, and has since raised over $60-million to give recreational and educational alternatives to at-risk youth in his home state of Nevada. He also spoke on Good Morning America. This is an amazing group that's come together, not because of what they've accomplished on the field or their athletic skills, but in their hearts and what they've given off the field. Over the years we have helped each other with our passions and charities, and what we have realized is we can accomplish a lot more collectively. And that's something that means a lot these days, where flashy headlines make the front page. What we want to do is remind people what really matters is that cancer patient getting cured because of what Lance does or a child having a memory Andrea gives them that they would not have otherwise, or Tony building inner city skate parks so kids can stay off the streets. Whatever your interest is, what Athletes For Hope stands for is that it cares for caring. For more on the Silver Lining Foundation, please visit its official site at For more info on Agassi's Charitable Foundation, please visit The other 10 founding members of Athletes For Hope are Muhammad Ali, Tony Hawk, Mia Hamm, Lance Armstrong, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Jeff Gordon, Mario Lemieux, Cal Ripken Jr., Warrick Dunn and Alonzo Mourning. They have been promoting the effort heavily in recent weeks, including most recently the appearance on Good Morning America last Wednesday.

8 NOTES & NETCORDS THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF THE SONY ERICSSON WTA TOUR TOURNAMENT PREVIEWS Berlin boasts top quality field BERLIN, Germany - A stunningly packed field that includes seven of the world's Top 10 players heads to Berlin for the first of two back-to-back Tier I clay events, the atar Telecom German Open. Two of the current game's most dangerous clay court players head the seeds - Justine Henin and Amélie Mauresmo. Henin has won 11 of her 32 titles on the surface. Mauresmo has won six of 24 titles on clay. What's more is that both have been most impressive during the upcoming Berlin-Rome stint; Henin is a three-time Berlin champion (2002, 2003 and 2005) and Mauresmo is a one-time Berlin champion (2004) and two-time Rome winner (2004, 2005). Henin has already had a week of preparation on clay, winning Warsaw; Mauresmo, on the other hand, is making a comeback to the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour after a 10-week hiatus, after undergoing appendix surgery just prior to the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. Svetlana Kuznetsova and Martina Hingis are the Top 2's projected semifinal foes. A runner-up to Henin at Roland Garros last year, No.3 seed Kuznetsova kicked off her 2007 clay court campaign with a semifinal in Warsaw last week and hopes to break a quarterfinal curse in Berlin, having fallen in that round each of the last three years. No.4 seed Hingis has had a better history here, winning in 1999, but in her only try since coming back to the Tour, she also fell in the quarters a year ago, in three sets to Mauresmo. Jelena Jankovic, Nadia Petrova and Dinara Safina are the No.5, No.7 and No.8 seeds. All three have great shots at the title as well; Jankovic won the Tier I in Charleston, Petrova earned three straight titles on clay last year, and Safina has reached finals at some big clay court events including Rome last year and Charleston this year. Nicole Vaidisova was slotted to be the No.6 seed, but had to pull out on Sunday as she continues to struggle with a wrist injury. I am very disappointed to not be able to play in Berlin. I flew all the way here hoping my wrist would get better. As I was born in Germany I feel a special connection with this country and was hoping to do well. I am hoping to be back next year able to compete. Russians Anna Chakvetadze and Elena Dementieva are the No.9 and No.10 seeds, respectively. Chakvetadze reached the quarterfinals in her clay court season debut last week in Warsaw, while Dementieva fell in the second round, but only thanks to a tough draw - she fell in a tight straight-setter to Venus Williams. This is the 28th year Berlin has been a Tour stop. Henin, Mauresmo, Petrova and Hingis are returning champions; the champions roster also includes Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario and Conchita Martínez, among others. Bartoli, Dulko headline field in Prague PRAGUE, Czech Republic - France s Marion Bartoli and Argentina s Gisela Dulko are the favorites this week at the $145,000 ECM Prague Open, held on the red clay courts of the Czech capital. Bartoli, ranked No.23 in the world and this week's top seed, hopes to shake off her injury problems from last week's event in Estoril, where she retired during her quarterfinal against Spain s Nuria Llagostera Vives with an abdominal injury. It was, however, her first time reaching a quarterfinal in 12 tournaments played so far this year, an encouraging sign for the Frenchwoman, who compiled a Top 20 season last year on the strength of three titles, at Auckland, Tokyo [Japan Open] and uébec City. She begins her campaign for a first singles title of the 2007 season with a first round encounter against 15-year-old Czech wild card Kristyna Pliskova. Dulko, the world's No.34-ranked player, is the No.2 seed this week. She recently captured her career-first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles trophy at the Tier III event in Budapest just two weeks ago, then extended her win streak to seven matches with a quarterfinal run at the Tier IV event in Estoril last week. Clearly one of the most in-form players on clay so far in 2007, the Argentine would also love to have a shot at Bartoli in the final; she is 0-2 against the Frenchwoman, falling in straight sets at 2005 Dubai and 2006 New Haven. She will face a qualifier in her opening round match. Both of the Top 2 seeds look to win matches here for the very first time; Dulko is a debutante at the ECM Prague Open this year, while Bartoli fell in the opening round in her only prior appearance at the Tier IV event a year ago, in three sets to Kaia Kanepi. Rounding out the seeded contingent are youngsters Michaella Krajicek of The Netherlands (No.3) and Olga Poutchkova of Russia (No.4), Frenchwomen Nathalie Dechy (No.5) and Virginie Razzano (No.7), Japan's Akiko Morigami (No.6) and Russia's Anastassia Rodionova (No.8). Estoril runner-up Victoria Azarenka is among the non-seeds this week. Last week in Estoril, the Belarussian teenager took out the likes of No.2 seed Francesca Schiavone and No.3 seed Lucie Safarova en route to her career-first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles final; prior to heading to the Iberian Peninsula, she had reached the semifinal round two times, at the Tier III in Guangzhou in 2005 and at the Tier IV tournament in Tashkent last fall. Prague made its return as a Tour stop in 2005 after a six-year absence. Russia's Dinara Safina captured the title that year, and last year it was Israeli Shahar Peer who hoisted the trophy Sunday. Winners prior to the hiatus include Jana Novotna, Amanda Coetzer, Julie Halard-Decugis and Ruxandra Dragomir. INJURY REPORT - withdrawals Mauresmo plays for the first time since finishing runner-up at Dubai in February.
