What a great week for Mona Barthel!
The 24-year-old from Germany brought the title home to finally win a tournament after more than 1 year. In the final Mona defeated world no.91 Chanelle Scheepers from South Africa 6-3 7-6 (3).
After the victory Barthel commented “It’s been an amazing week for me. I cannot believe I won the title! It was like a perfect week for me. I was fighting a lot – in some matches I was behind, and I was just fighting for every point. I’m just happy everything worked out. I love this tournament so much. I can’t wait to defend my title.”
This is Mona’s 3rd career title as she won Paris last year and Hobart in 2012.
Now time to prepare for the North American swing
