WEEKEND WINNERS: Tomas, Dmitry, JJ, Caroline, Sorana

Tomas Berdych - Tokyo

The Czech baller made quick work of a streaking Juan Martin del Potro hitting 11 aces and converting three of eight break points during his 6-1, 6-4 victory. It was his first title since Halle 2007 and still has an outside chance of making his first trip to Shanghai. Great win for Tomas but something tells me this isn't a harbinger of better things to come for the mentally shaky 23-year old.

Dmitry Tursunov - Metz

The eccentric Russian earned his fifth career title and second this year (Sydney) when he defeated Frenchie Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-6 (6), 1-6, 6-4. Remember what I just said about Tomas and his win in Tokyo? Ditto for Dmitry.

Jelena Jankovic - Stuttgart

The Serb made her return to the WTA Penthouse complete this weekend when she dismissed Nadia Petrova 6-4, 6-3 for her third title of the year (Rome, Beijing). It was also the first time JJ won back-to-back titles in her career. I'd say she looks the best bet to end the year no. 1 with Serena Williams pulling out of Moscow with an ankle injury, though nothing is ever for sure with JJ.

Caroline Wozniacki - Tokyo

Caroline returned to her winning ways after falling in the opening round of her last two tourneys. The Dane knocked out Estonia's Kaia Kanepi 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 for her third title of the year and third of her career; it was the pair's first career encounter.

Sorana Cirstea - Tashkent

Sorana earned her maiden WTA title this weekend when she scraped out a
2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4) victory over Sabine Lisicki. She was contesting her second final of the year after losing to Gisela Dulko in Budapest last spring.
