France’s Tatiana Golovin defeated top seed and defending champion Nadia Petrova of Russia 6-2, 6-1 at Amelia Island, Florida. This is Tatiana’s first time to win this clay-court tournament; it’s also her first WTA Tour title. Last three times, she was the runner-up.

The 19-year-old winner said that this was probably the happiest day of her life in her tennis career. Golovin, ranked No. 20 in the world also said: “The experience of beating Venus (Williams) and Ana (Ivanovic) this week, especially Ivanovic since I had never beaten her in the past, it gives you confidence. Today I knew that I could beat Petrova. I knew I had the weapons to do so.”

Winning this match, Golovin took her head-to-head record against Petrova to 5-1.
