Petrova takes third at Tournament of Champions

Russia's Nadia Petrova of Russia took third place in the WTA Tournament of Champions by defeating Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, 6-2, 5-7, 6-0 on Sunday.
Hantuchova, ranked No. 23 in the world entering the tournament, played in place of third-seeded Sabine Lisicki, who beat Hantuchova on Friday but withdrew from the tournament Sunday due to a back injury.
Lisicki retired from her semifinal against Anabel Medina-Garrigues, and said "I wanted to go all the way and was fighting until the end, but it simply wasn't possible for me to continue."
