WTA | Bertens wins in Gstaad

Kiki Bertens won her second claycourt title and second title of the year when she beat Anett Kontaveit 6-4 3-6 6-1 in the final of the Ladies Championship Gstaad.

 

Every day was going a bit better, and today I think I played my best match of the week. Kiki Bertens

“The court is good, all the facilities are good for me,” said Bertens, the second seed and last year’s runner-up. “You can say I really like it here…I was hungry to come here and really go for it, and I was really happy that I could go one more step today. Every day was going a bit better, and today I think I played my best match of the week.”

Kontaveit, seeded three, said: “It’s always disappointing to lose, but I thought Kiki played well. She really deserved it and I’m really happy for her. If I wanted to lose to anyone, I would’ve wanted to lose to her this week. I didn’t feel like I played perfect tennis this week, but I was just fighting each match.”

Later Bertens teamed up with Johanna Larsson to win the doubles, in the final defeating Viktorija Golubic and Nina Stojanovic 7-6(4) 4-6 10-7.

“It’s been a lovely week here in the mountains, and it could not be a better end,” Larsson said. “I think we’re always having a lot of fun, and we try to improve — we try and make the best of it and have fun. The doubles is more like a bonus, and it’s just coming in a flow for us.”

Meanwhile in Bucharest Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu claimed her fourth WTA Tour title by easing past Julia Georges 6-3 7-5, as the German third seed Georges double-faulted on match point.
