Mona Barthel: Straight-sets win

Mona Barthel: Straight-sets win

Mona Barthel captured the WTA Open GDF Suez title after a straight-sets win over Sara Errani in Paris.

The unseeded German picked up her second career title after a 7-5 7-6 (7/4) victory over the top seed in a contest which lasted a little under two hours.

Barthel had already beaten fifth seed Roberta Vinci in the second round and third seed Marion Bartoli in the quarter-finals.

Barthel won the points which mattered, holding off seven break points and breaking her Italian opponent four times during the encounter.

Errani's second serve also proved to be an issue, as she won just five points from 14 attempts.

"Congratulations to Sara for making it so tough for me today," Barthel said at the trophy ceremony.

"This was such a great week for me. I didn't expect to win this tournament when I came here.

"I had a lot of fun this week and want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us all week."
