Week #34: Wozniacki wins in New Haven

Danish teen Caroline Wozniacki confirmed her great progression this season by winning the title in the Tier II of New Haven. In the final, Wozniacki had to come back from a set down against 1st seed Anna Chakvetadze, who got a good result after a not very brilliant season. Also remarkable were the semifinal places of French teen Alize Cornet and veteran Amelie Mauresmo, who is trying to get her best tennis back and got good victories over Patty Schnyder and Agnes Szavay.
In the small Tier IV of Forest Hills, Czech player Lucie Safarova got her 4th career WTA title and seems to be finally overcoming the big slump she has suffered for over a year after a fantastic beggining of 2007 season when she nearly reached the Top 20. She defeated Chinese Shuai Peng in the final.
