filling in the gaps: trophy watch


I planted the seed for TSF once the calendar turned to 2007, but of course it took a while for the blog to germinate. This meant that most of January, tennis-wise, was a wash; we have no posts of fashions and trophies from the Aussie Open and its warm-ups tournaments. So in this series I’ll attempt to fill in the gaps in my OCD-induced catalog one tennis season.

First, a trophy post:

Trophy watch: Russian Anna Chakvetadze took home her third singles career title by beating Vasilisa Bardina 6-3, 7-6 (3) in Hobart in January of this year. She’s since racked up three more titles — ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Cincinnati, and Stanford — for a total of seven.

Bonus round: You can read up on Chakvetadze here, and on runner-up Bardina here.
