Mugu­ruza wins China Open women’s ti­tle

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Spain’s Gar­bine Mugu­ruza, one of the ris­ing stars of women’s ten­nis, beat Switzer­land’s Timea Bac­sin­szky to win the China Open on Sun­day, her big­gest ti­tle to date.

Mugu­ruza won a hard-fought fi­nal 7-5, 6-4 to cap­ture her first Premier Manda­tory ti­tle and climb to fourth in the world rank­ings.

It was just the 22-year-old’s sec­ond WTA ti­tle, af­ter she won her first at last year’s Ho­bart In­ter­na­tional, and made up for the frus­tra­tion of los­ing her two pre­vi­ous fi­nals this year, at Wim­ble­don in July and Wuhan last week.
