Dementieva defends Sydney title
Defending champion and 5th seed Elena Dementieva won the Medibank International today by defeating top seed Serena Williams 6-3, 6-2. Williams was very error-prone and also appeared to be having trouble with her knee again, although she downplayed the problem in her post-match interview.
Number 1 seeds Cara Black and Liezel Huber won the doubles title, defeating Tathiana Garbin and Nadia Petrova 6-1, 3-6, 10-3.
