Acapulco, Florianopolis F: Zakopalova breaks her curse

Acapulco final:

Dominika Cibulkova def. Christine McHale 7-6(3) 4-6 6-4

For someone making her tour final debut, Christina McHale fought her heart out impressively and only just lost to a much experienced opponent. If she continues her form, I'm sure the American will be contending for many more finals to come. Congratulations to Cibulkova, cementing her good form from Melbourne. With a couple of good runs, she will be in the top 10 soon.

Florianopolis final:

Klara Zakopalova def. Garbine Muguruza 4-6 7-5 6-0

Trailing 6-4 5-2, it was almost safe to say Klara is going to lose yet another final. Somehow, something clicked in her and she fought hard for every point since then. What resulted was an epic meltdown from Muguruza, and Klara winning her well deserved 3rd title, her first since 2005. Garbine lost it after losing her lead, and was too impatient to work out the points. The veteran took full advantage, and avenged for her loss in Hobart. Zakopalova's game is always pleasing to watch when she's clicking, and it's great to see her playing well at the latter stage of her career.
