Marion Bartoli won her first WTA title this year by beating Li Na 6-4, 6-3 to at the Monterrey Open on Sunday.
“I feel really good about how I played the whole week,” Bartoli said. “I had some tough matches, not just today but also in the semifinals. They were both two sets but tough.”
Bartoli came away with her fourth career singles title on the Tour, having won in Auckland, Tokyo and Québec City in 2006.
Earlier in double finals, Nathalie Dechy and Mara Santangelo beat Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, 63 64. It was Dechy and Santangelo’s third title together, having won Rome in 2007 and Auckland earlier this year. Dechy now has six Tour doubles titles to her name while Santangelo has eight.
