German wild card entrant wins at home


Laura Siegemund defeated Kristina Mladenovic 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (5) to win the Porsche Grand Prix in her hometown of Stuttgart, Germany, on Sunday. The German wild card entrant, who lost to compatriot Angelique Kerber in last year’s final, held on to win her second career title after Mladenovic had rallied in the second set. Mladenovic, who ended Maria Sharapova’s return from her doping ban on Saturday and Kerber’s defence on Thursday, was going for her second title of 2017.
