Szavay and Schnyder return to Budapest final

Last year's Budapest final will be repeated tomorrow, at least in terms of the participants. Defending champion and 7th seed Agnes Szavay defeated 2nd seed Alexandra Dulgheru 6-1, 5-7, 7-5 today in the semifinals. Patty Schnyder defeated qualifier Zuzana Ondraskova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3. Schnyder is last year's runner-up; Szavay defeated her 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the 2009 final. Schnyder was last year's top seed.

In doubles, 2nd seeds Timea Bacsinszky and Tathiana Garbin will compete for the title against top seeds Sorana Cirstea and Anabel Medina Garrigues.

Great for Schnyder to try and get a title this year since there have been rumors of her retirement. Have been missing her.

They aren't rumors. Patty said that 2009 would be her last year, then she changed her mind. Now she says there is a small chance she will return in 2011, but that 2010 is probably it.
