Greta Arn wins Auckland title

Posted by Lana On 1/08/2011 10:46:00 AM

Greta Arn defeated defending champion Janina Wickmayer 6-2, 6-2 in the final of the Auckland Classic to win her second WTA Tour title in her 14-year professional career.

On her way to title, Greta beat No.8 seed Sofia Arvidsson, No.1 seed Maria Sharapova, No.4 seed Julia Goerges and No.2 seed Yanina Wickmayer. Impressive!

"I feel unbelievable. I'm so happy, I don't even know what to say. My dream come true," Arn said. "I just tried to do my thing. I played my tennis and took it one ball after another. I wanted to move her around because she had a tough match yesterday; she looks fit to me, but it seemed to work today.

"I will definitely be coming back to Auckland next year."

"Greta played well. She did what she had to do, so congratulations to her," Wickmayer said. "She has a different game from the other players. I made way too many mistakes. It wasn't my day, but there will be many more to come."

In the doubles final, Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik beat Arvidsson and Marina Erakovic 63 60 in just 51 minutes to win their third WTA title.

"This is a very good start to the year for us," Peschke said. "We had a great time here in Auckland. The tournament was very good to us and we were made to feel very welcome. It really does make a difference to the players."

"We watched them play yesterday and felt as though today was in our hands," Srebotnik commented. "We knew what to expect and what to do."

This is Srebotnik's first tournament since retiring from singles to focus on just doubles. "The switch from singles to doubles hasn't been too bad. Doubles is perfect and it was an easy decision to make. With doubles the points are shorter and it's easier on the body. I don't regret my decision."
