Wickmayer happy with her week

8:27 pm on 8 January 2011

The defending champ at the ASB Classic tennis tournament doesn't need reminding how big a contrast it's been to last year's effort.

Twelve months ago Belgian Yanina Wickmayer breezed through the Auckland event without dropping a set but this year the second seed has been pushed, especially in Friday's marathon semi-final win.

Surprise package Greta Arn beat her in the final and Wickmayer says she covered a lot of ground just to get herself in the position to hold onto her title.
