By reaching the final, Ivanovic had already assured herself of being ranked No. 1 for the first time next week.

Saturday produced a nervous performance by both players, but in the end, Ivanovic ultimately conquered her personal demons and won the match on her first championship match point. The match was not of a very good quality as there were too many unforced errors, especially from Safina’s side. The sister of Marat Safin never really managed to play her shots. She appeared to be very tense throughout the match.
