Hobart double for Eleni

Hobart (AP) – Eleni Daniilidou will meet Russian Vera Zvonareva in the final of the Hobart International in Australia after both won semifinals in straight sets yesterday. Daniilidou beat Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 6-3 to advance to her first WTA Tour final since winning at Seoul in 2006. Number 2 seed Vera Zvonareva beat US qualifier Ashley Harkleroad 6-2, 6-1. Pennetta was hampered by an injury to her right foot which required treatment several times throughout the match. Daniilidou, who later also advanced to the doubles final with Germany’s Jasmin Woehr, said she was feeling strong heading into the finals. «It’s been a great week and I’m really pleased to be into the final,» she said. «The body is perfect and the mind is perfect, so I will just go out… and try to enjoy the moment.»
