Week #37: Titles for Peer and Czink

Former Top-20 Shahar Peer confirmed that she is back on track after she captured in Ghuangzhou her 4th WTA title, but first since 2006. Peer took advance of the weak draw and the retirement of 3rd seed and home favourite Shuai Peng in the semifinal match, and defeated Italian Alberta Brianti in the final. Japanese Ayumi Morita completed the semis.

In Quebec, Hungarian Melinda Czink captured her 1st WTA title after coming back from a set down to defeat Czech Lucie Safarova in a tight all-lefty final. Czink benefited from 1st seed Nadia Petrova retirement on their quarter-final match, and then progressed to the final upsetting 3rd seed and local favourite Aleksandra Wozniak. German Julia Goerges completed the semis
