After winning in Cincinnati last week, Russia’s Anna Chakvetadze did the same in Stanford. However, her way to the final was quite difficult. She had to play 3-set matches, and was rather tired by the final. Yet, she defeated India's Sania Mirza 6-3 6-2, winning her first Stanford classic title on Sunday.For some reason, I get a warm, satisfied feeling deep in my heart every time another Russian woman tennis player wins a tournament these days. Actually, should I even point out that her surname is Georgian?
Chakvetadze won the sixth title in her career, which is her fourth title this year. The victory in Stanford made Anna WTA’s sixth-ranked, which is the highest rating point in her career.
Hats off to young Anna and wishing her many future victories to come.
