Look who's wearing the sombrero!

Friends Caroline Garcia and Timea Bacsinszky played each other for the first time today, in the Acapulco final, and Bacsinszky emerged the champion with a decisive win of 6-3, 6-0 over Garcia. The Swiss player, whose career has been significantly hampered by injury over the last several years, will be ranked number 31 in the world when the rankings are published tomorrow.

This is Bacsinszky's second WTA singles title.

The doubles final was an upset, even though a number 2-seeded team beating a number 1-seeded team doesn't sound like much of an upset. But the top seeds were Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. They were defeated 7-6, 5-7, 13-11 by Lara Arruabarrena and Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor.

I've noticed that many fans put down the sombrero; it's one of my favorite touches at any tournament!

They do? I can't believe it, I think it's what makes this ceremony unforgettable, like they do in Hansol or Tashkent.
