Zidansek wins Lausanne WTA title
Top seed Tamara Zidansek came from behind to beat France’s Clara Burel 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-1 to claim the Lausanne WTA title on Sunday. French Open semifinalist Zidansek, the world number 50, overcame a sluggish start and breezy conditions to beat the 125-ranked Burel on the central clay court at the Stade-Lausanne tennis club.
Burel, 20, a former world number one in the junior rankings who is coached by French former tennis star Thierry Champion, was playing in her first final on the WTA tour.
It was a third tour title for Slovenia’s Zidansek. The 23-year-old won the Bol tournament in Croatia in 2018 and 2019.
