Women’s tennis year end update…

In Turkey, the Women’s Year End Final rolled on…

Sharapova defeated Stosur 6-0, 6–3; Radwanska defeated Errani 6-7, 7-5, 6-4; and Azarenka secured the year end no. 1 ranking with a victory over Li Na 7-6, 6-2.  Serena Williams will finish the year ranked at no. 3.  There is still more to come in the round robin event from Istanbul but the no. 1 ranking has been settled.  (Sharapova also had a shot at the year end no. 1 ranking but Azarenka took care of business today, so it belongs to her)!!  Congrats!

In Basel, Roger Federer defeated B. Paire of France, 6-2, 6-2 with a particularly strong display of his serving excellence.  Still will remain to be seen whether Roger competes in Paris next week.   If he goes on to win in Basel, would not be shocked to see him take a break, in spite of relinquishing the no. 1 ranking to Djokovic in doing so, and prepare himself mentally, emotionally and physically to finish strong in London!  (Hopefully he will end the year at no. 1!!!!)  I am pulling for that!!

In golf, Tiger is tied for 5th place at the event in Malaysia.
