Golovin Beats Srebotnik for WTA Portoroz Trophy
Posted on September 24, 2007
Top-seeded Tatiana Golovin outlasted Katarina Srebotnik 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 Sunday to win the Slovenia Open in Portoroz.
Golovin, who lost first round at the US Open, said she played the smaller Portoroz event in an attempt to regain some rhythm.
"My form is up again," said the 19-year-old Frenchwoman. "I have a feeling that my strikes are like at the start of the season."
Srebotnik, the homecountry favorite, continued her title drought of approximately two years.
In the doubles final the No. 3-seeded Czech team of Hradecka/Voracova topped the Slovak-Russian pair of Klepac/Likhovtseva 5-7, 6-4, 10-7.
