It wasn't that long ago that Agnieszka Radwanska told the tennis press that she planned to move into the top 5. She did that today by winning the title in Dubai. Radwanska, seeded 5th, defeated Julia Goerges 7-5, 6-4. "She doesn't give you anything," Goerges said after the match. "She doesn't do any mistakes at all. And when she does a few, it's at 15-all or 15-0, not in the important moments."
Goerges had a very good week, taking out Svetlana Kuznetsova, Daniela Hantuchova and Caroline Wozniacki. The match against Hantuchova was of especially high quality.
Neither finalist had to deal with either Petra Kvitova or Victoria Azarenka; both had to withdraw because of illness and injury, respectively.
Top seeds Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond won the doubles title. Huber and Raymond defeated 2nd seeds Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-1.
