Alona Bondarenko could bag her first SEWTA Tour title of the year if she defeats Romainian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru in tomorrow’s Warsaw Open final. Alona beat Anne Keothavong 6-2, 7-5 to advance to the final, while Dulgheru upset Dani Hantuchova 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-1.
At next week’s French Open, Alona opens with a match against Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova, and has Amelie Mauresmo, Agi Szavay, and Venus Williams in her section of the draw.
Tattoo watch: Meanwhile, we’ve discovered this photo of Alona’s back tattoo, taken during the a 2009 Aussie Open match against Svetlana Kuznetsova. It looks similar (and is inked almost in the same spot) as her sister’s.
