JPMorgan Chase :

CARSON: Elena Dementieva overcame her nerves and Jelena Jankovic’s gambling style for a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win in the JPMorgan Chase Open final on Sunday. Dementieva smacked a crosscourt forehand winner on her third championship point, her second title this year and sixth of her eight-year professional career.

Dementieva’s nerves were apparent a game earlier, when she sidearmed some serves in and got broken at 5-4 after squandering two match points.
