Schiavone Breaks WTA Title Duck at Bad Gastien


Posted on July 30, 2007

Riding the wave of leading Italy into the Fed Cup final, Francesca Schiavone won her first WTA Tour title Sunday, beating Yvonne Meusburger 6-1, 6-4 in the final of the Gastein Ladies in Bad Gastien, Austria.


"I didn't put pressure on myself," Schiavone said. "I'm a different player now and I just went out today to enjoy myself and hopefully win."

The Austrian Meusburger was appearing in her first final and had a nervous start in front of the home crowd.

"The match was much closer than the result shows," Meusburger said. "Anyway, the final was a good experience for me and it will help me to further raise my game."

Bad Gastien is a new event on the WTA Tour calendar, with Tournament Director Sandra Reichel remarking she was unhappy to go up against the ATP Kitzbuhel event held during the same week.
