“I came here to get as many matches as I could, and I did,” Sharapova said. “It’s nice to win the tournament, but sometimes it doesn’t happen.”
The No.2 seeds Cara Black and Lisa Raymond took the doubles title with victory over the No.1 seeds Liezel Huber and Bethanie Mattek-Sands. After claiming the first set 6-3, the lower seeds were 3-2 up in the second set before the American pairing retired.
