ISTANBUL | Sue Bird has played in enough world championship medal games to know that they are rarely easy.
After dominating the Sky in the first two games of the WNBA Finals, Diana Taurasi and her Phoenix Mercury know that closing out the series won't be as easy.
A look at the four first-round series in the WNBA playoffs, which start today:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. | Kayla McBride seemingly did whatever she wanted, and enjoyed herself while she did it.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. | The women's basketball Final Four features Hall of Fame coaches, star players, fabulous freshmen and of course for the first time ever — two undefeated teams.
SOUTH BEND | Notre Dame's quest for perfection will continue at the Final Four.
NEW YORK | Taj Gibson enjoyed coming home for the holidays.

NEW ORLEANS | Geno Auriemma has never lost an NCAA championship game.
NEW ORLEANS | Breanna Stewart put on quite a show to help UConn finally vanquish Notre Dame.
NEW ORLEANS | Skylar Diggins has accomplished nearly everything she could have imagined in her career at Notre Dame. The only thing missing is a national championship.
Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw wasn't thrilled when the NCAA women's tournament bracket was released Monday.
HARTFORD, Conn. | Skylar Diggins cut the final strand off the net and twirled it around. Finally, Notre Dame had its first Big East tournament championship.
Despite a long and impressive career, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw has never won a Big East tournament championship. This could be her last chance with the top-seeded Fighting Irish possibly leaving the ever-changing conference as soon as July.
LONDON | The names change, not the results. Just call the U.S. women's basketball team Olympic champion.
LONDON | Geno Auriemma attributes the U.S. women's basketball team's success over the past four Olympics to one simple thing: depth.
LONDON | The U.S. women expect their toughest Olympic test so far when they play unbeaten Turkey today in the women's basketball tournament.
LONDON | Diana Taurasi and the U.S. women's basketball team open play today against a team they just pounded by 54 points.
WASHINGTON | Lindsay Whalen showed that the U.S. women's Olympic basketball team has depth at point guard.
DENVER | An hour after losing in last season's regional finals, Brittney Griner sent Baylor coach Kim Mulkey a text.

Brittney Griner didn't want to take off her U.S.A. basketball jersey.
INDIANAPOLIS | Geno Auriemma has accomplished virtually everything imaginable in his storied career at Connecticut.
PHILADELPHIA | Maya Moore is headed to the Final Four with a chance to pad perhaps the most impressive resume in the history of women's college basketball with yet another championship.
STORRS, Conn. | The NCAA tournament is just about survival and the Big East has done it better than any other conference in the women's field this year.
STORRS, Conn. | Maya Moore ran off the court at Gampel Pavilion one final time, arms raised triumphantly, almost embarrassed as the crowd serenaded her with chants of "Maya, Maya."
HARTFORD, Conn. | Maya Moore's final Big East championship was the most gratifying of her outstanding career.
STORRS, Conn. | Geno Auriemma looked down at the stat sheet and was amazed.
Coach Geno Auriemma always preached that championships are what his Connecticut Huskies chase, not streaks.
HARTFORD, Conn. | One of the biggest streaks in sports now belongs to the UConn women's basketball team.
KARLOVY VARY, Czech Republic | Sue Bird handed the world championship trophy to Tamika Catchings and the two embraced, sharing a large grin.
SECAUCUS, N.J. | It's been an unforgettable 48 hours for Tina Charles.
SAN ANTONIO | Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma didn't even have a chance to enjoy what his Huskies had accomplished during their 78-game winning streak and unprecedented consecutive unbeaten seasons before the question arose.

As John Wooden led UCLA on its vaunted 88-game winning streak, he knew just the right time to talk about his team's accomplishments -- never.
This is now an annual rite of spring for Maya Moore, who is fast joining some of the greatest players in women's college basketball.
Arkansas-Little Rock and Wisconsin-Green Bay were two of the last at-large teams in the women's NCAA field. So far they've made the biggest impact, pulling off upsets in the first round of the tournament.
Sure, it's not going out on a limb to say Connecticut's winning its seventh national championship.
Winning 26 games has been a guarantee to make the NCAA women's basketball tournament if you're from a BCS conference. Outside one of the power conferences, selection Monday has always been nerve-racking -- in the past decade, 10 mid-major teams reached 26 victories and still were left out.
Connecticut's journey for the sixth perfect season in NCAA history will begin in Norfolk, Va.
UConn coach Geno Auriemma has been impressed with his Huskies unprecedented run at No. 1.
