Week #24: Titles for Wozniacki and Tanasugarn

18-year old Caroline Wozniacki captured in Eastbourne the 5th WTA title of her career and showed that she can also be competitive on grass. In the final, Wozniacki defeated Virginie Razzano by 7/6 7/5 in a very close match. Razzano was the biggest surprise in a tournament full of upsets and retirements, as the best players are focused on Wimbledon starting this week. Marion Bartoli and Aleksandra Wozniak completed the semis as only 2 seeds (Wozniacki and Radwanska) reached the quarter-finals.

In 's-Hertogenbosch, Tamarine Tanasugarn showed once again that she feels really confortable on grass and successfully defended her title. In the semis Tanasugarn defeated WTA #1 Dinara Safina in a repetition of last year's final, and then in the final she overcame Belgian youngster Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets. Francesca Schiavone completed the semis.
