Former Top 5 player Daniela Hantuchova says that she is not over the hill at the age of 30. The Slovak won her first title in 17 months at Birmingham and pushed her ranking back up to No. 48. She had fallen to No. 75 earlier this season.

"It shows me I can still compete at the highest level, both physically and mentally," Hantuchova told reporters. "It's actually so nice to see so many players from my generation doing so well, starting with Serena [Williams], obviously — what she's done over the last few years is just amazing. And Francesca [Schiavone], Roberta [Vinci] — it's nice to see the old way of playing still being so successful right now, and I'm glad to be a part of it."
