Medina Garrigues clinches Hopman Cup title for Spain

She had a back injury and didn't like her chances, but Anabel Medina Garrigues won three singles matches in Hopman Cup play, including the women's singles part of the final, as well as the mixed doubles final match.

Medina Garrigues defeated Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-7, 6-2 after Novak Djokovic defeated Fernando Verdasco. Spain and Serbia were then tied, and Spain prevailed when Medina Garrigues and Verdasco defeated Ivanovic and Djokovic 6-4,7-5

"It was absolutely a pleasure to play with her," Verdasco said of his partner.

It was so good to see AMG win the title with Verdasco. She was so solid through-out the week. Did you watch the final? Her reaction when Spain won the mixed doubles, was priceless. I just loved it.

I didn't get to see it but expect to find highlights on YouTube soon. AMG can be very expressive :)
