Player of the week: Melinda Czink

After 9 years as a professional, Hungarian Melinda Czink captured last week her first WTA title in Quebec City.

After defeating Monique Adamczak and Severine Beltrame in straight sets in the 1st and 2nd round respectively, Czink had to face 1st seed and WTA #13 Nadia Petrova in the quarters. After a very tight 1st set won by Czink in the tie-break, the Hungarian benefited of Petrova's retirement due to a viral illness. In the semifinal Czink defeated home favourite and 3rd seed Aleksandra Wozniak. And in the final, Czink came back from a set down to defeat 4th seed Lucie Safarova in a very close match that was decided by 7/5 in the third set.
