Qatar Flag Sony Ericsson Championships:  Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova has salvaged some pride after claiming her first win in the round-robin stage of the 2009 Sony Ericsson Championships in Qatar, by winning her final group match against countrywoman Elena Dementieva (RUS). Third-seeded Kuznetsova, who had effectively been knocked out of the tournament after her loss to Venus Williams a day earlier, took control from the beginning of the match before emerging with a strong 6-3, 6-2 victory. This year's Doha champion is 2nd-seeded Serena Williams (USA) after she defeated her sister Venus in Sunday's final.
