So, who was the lucky player to claim the $1.3 million prize?
In February 2007, Amélie Mauresmo, from the neighboring country France, took home the trophy with a tight win over local favorite Kim Clijsters at 6-4, 7-6 (7-4).
This match marked not only her third win in 5 years but her third consecutive win at the Diamond Games, well deserved if you ask me.
Almost A Winner
Venus Williams won the tournament the first two years, and in 2005 she went for her third win in five years but was held off by Mauresmo in a three-set battle that ended 4–6, 7–5, 6–4.
In 2006, Venus would have been a favorite to win the trophy. However, she withdrew, citing a wrist injury that needed her attention.
