2007 INDIAN WELLS MASTERS

FINAL

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA v SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA

6-3 , 6-4

Daniela Hantuchova won her second Pacific Life Open championship in five years Saturday - and just her second tour title ever. Hantuchova, the 2002 champion at Indian Wells,

defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-4 in the final this time to end her long winless streak.
No. 18 Hantuchova, who upset Martina Hingis in the championship match for her only previous title, this time used steady, accurate groundstrokes and timely net play for the victory

over No. 4 Kuznetsova, the 2004 U.S. Open champion.
Hantuchova, who also defeated Hingis this year on her way to the final, obviously was elated to finally earn her second tour win
At almost the same instant Kuznetsova's forehand sailed over the back line long on the final point, Hantuchova already was jumping and waving her arms in joy.
"I think all the best things in life are worth waiting for, moments like this," Hantuchova said.

 "I guess all the hard work and everything I had to go through makes the victory that much sweeter."
The Slovakian, whose only other tour success came at the same event in 2002, capped a fine week with a 6-3 6-4 win
The 23-year-old from Slovakia dictated the rhythm of the match against Kuznetsova, a 21-year-old Russian who has won eight tour titles.

Keeping the ball deep with hard groundstrokes, Hantuchova also made the most of her trips to the net, winning 11 of her 12.
