WTA Diary: Mind The Gap
Simona Halep

Mind The Gap
Simona Halep has moved to within 11 points of Maria Sharapova at the top of the Road To Singapore leaderboard following her triumph on home soil at the inaugural Bucharest Open.

Also tasting success over the weekend was Andrea Petkovic, who picked up her second title of the season with a straight set win over Shelby Rogers in Bad Gastein. Next stop along the Road To Singapore: Bastad and Istanbul.

Off To Singapore
While Halep and Sharapova close in on the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, two players have already booked their places.

Hall Of Famer
Lindsay Davenport was among the latest inductees to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Here's what some of Davenport's fellow Hall of Famers had to say about her.

The Amazing Jane Brown Grimes
Davenport wasn't the only member of the WTA family to be honored in Newport.

World Cup Fever
The WTA's German contingent (past and present) were rather excited by Die Mannschaft's rout of Brazil in the semis and even more so during Sunday's final.

Another Coaching Split
Last week it was Li Na and Carlos Rodriguez, now it's Ana Ivanovic and Nemanja Kontic's turn.
