Venus wins Zurich Open
Having lost to Flavia Pennetta in their last three matches, Venus Williams turned it around today, and defeated Pennetta, 7-6, 6-2. Williams won the tournament--which is being discontinued--during its 25th anniversary. There is talk of reviving the Zurich tournament at some point, but for now, it is finished.
Tops seeds Cara Black and Liezel Huber won the doubles title, defeating Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Patty Schnyder, 6-1, 7-6.
