Russia's Safina and Slovenia's Srebotnik held three set points in the opener, leading 5-4 and love-40 on Zvonareva's serve. But Dechy-Zvonareva won the next five points. The eventual champions trailed again in the tiebreaker before taking its last four points. In the second set, Srebotnik got broken while trailing 6-5 to end the match after 1 hour, 46 minutes. (AP)
