Anna Chakvetadze defeated Johanna Larsson in 61 minutes, 6-1 6-2 to win Banka Koper Slovenia Open in Portoroz, her first title in almost two and a half years.

"The quarterfinal and semifinal matches were the toughest of the week for me," Chakvetadze said. "Against Dushevina I didn't play well but still won - it's good when you don't play your best and win, because after that you play better."

This was her eighth career title, and first since Paris in February 2008.

"This was my ninth final and Johanna's first, so I don't think she was as comfortable as me today," Chakvetadze said. "I was very concentrated and didn't give her many free points, so I'm very happy with my performance."

Chakvetadze, who reached a career-high No.5 in September 2007 after her first Grand Slam semifinal at the US Open, returns to the Top 75 by virtue of this title.

"Right now I'm far away from No.5. I've struggled so much, but finally I have this win," Chakvetadze said. "Last year was really tough for me. I hope this year will be better. I'm not at the same level I used to be... but I'm close."

In the doubles final, Maria Kondratieva and Vladimira Uhlirova beat Anna Chakvetadze and Marina Erakovic64 26 107 to win their first title together.

Julia Goerges defeated Timea Bacsinszky 6-1 6-4 to win Bad Gastein, her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title.

Earlier in the day, she beat Alizé Cornet in a rain delayed semifinal also 6-1 6-4

"In the morning I told myself just try to get to the final. It was my fifth chance and I did it," Goerges said. "I was so happy to be in my first final that I was really relaxed against Timea, and the crowd was so supportive too. I got tight on one match point but closed it out well. I'm so happy to have my first title.

"I'm going to buy a MacBook to celebrate. My laptop isn't working well anymore so I'll give that to my coach and get a new one!"

In the doubles final, No.2 seeds Lucie Hradecka and Anabel Medina Garrigues beat No.4 seeds Bacsinszky and Tathiana Garbin in a match tie-break, 67(2) 61 105.

"It was my first time playing with Anabel and I hope we'll play again," Hradecka said. "I'm so happy to win here four years in a row. I love being here in Bad Gastein. There's so much to do in the area. It's just a really good tournament."

"I'm really happy to win another title, and I'm very happy for Lucie too," Medina Garrigues said. "Lucie is a very good doubles player. She has a lot of power."

July 25, 2010 - Hamburg, Germany - epa02260672 Kazakhstan's Andrey Golubev looks at the trophy as he waits for the winners ceremony after winning the ATP German Open final at the Rothenbaum club in Hamburg, Germany, 25 July 2010. Golubjev defeated Austria's Juergen Melzer in the final match of the tournament.

Andrey Golubev defeated Jurgen Melzer 6-3, 7-5 in the final of the German Open Tennis Championships to win his first ATP World Tour title.

“I’m very happy to win my first title, especially here in Hamburg on a clay-court. I never expected that my first title would be on clay," confessed Golubev. "I played very well, I believed in myself. It was very tough [today]. I served well; I played very well from the baseline. In the important points I played very good. I think the most important thing this week was that I believed in myself, I believed in my game, my forehand and backhand.”

“He played a really good match," conceded Melzer. "He started off unbelievable in the first set and I was a little unlucky to get broken at 4-3. In the second set I had my chances and couldn’t convert them. It is how it is. He really felt good out there and I wasn’t just playing well enough to get him struggling.”

In the doubles final, Marc Lopez and David Marrero defeated Jeremy Chardy and Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-3, 2-6, 10-8 in the final of the German Open Tennis Championships to win their second ATP World Tour doubles title together.

"I’m so happy," declared Marrero. "We didn’t start to play that good, but every day we felt more comfortable. Marc is a great partner on the court, but also outside from the court, and I hope we’ll play more tournaments together."

"It was an amazing week," reflected Lopez. "It’s our second title this year. I am very happy because it is a very important victory. It’s for both of us the first title in an ATP [World Tour] 500 tournament. And next year I’ll try to win again."

Mardy Fish defeated John Isner 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(4) to win the Atlanta Tennis Championships.

"This is as top as I’ve ever been," said Fish. "I’ve never won two tournaments in one year, I’ve never won two tournaments in a row, and on the ATP [World] Tour, I’ve never won 10 matches in a row. It’s probably as good as it’s been. "

"It was a little lucky to pull through," said Fish. "Today was an extremely physical match just with the heat. He’s no fun to play, that’s for sure. He gives a lot of people a lot of trouble."

In the doubles final Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram defeated Rohan Bopanna and Kristof Vliegen 6-3, 6-7(4), 12-10 to win the title.

“We both serve well and that makes us pretty tough to beat in tie-break situations,” said Ram. “We kind of get a couple returns in the court and then it’s a lot of pressure on the other teams because if we win our first serve we feel we have a good chance of winning the point. It’s what doubles is. It’s a point here or there and you’ve just got to be as present-minded as possible.”
