Aravane Rezai won the biggest title of her career playing against Marion Bartoli in an all-French final of the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions in Bali.
Of course, injuries where not avoided this time either, with top seed Bartoli retiring in tears because of a left quadriceps strain after losing the first set 7-5. Rezai had actually rallied from a set point down at 3-5 in the opening set.
“I’d prefer to win in a different way, but it’s tennis, a lot of different things happen,” said the 22-year-old Rezai after winning the showcase of the up-and-coming stars of women’s tennis. (via Sony Ericsson WTA Tour)
