Germany’s Tatjana Maria won her first WTA singles title on Sunday, defeating defending champion Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia 6-4, 7-5 to win the Mallorca Open in Spain.


Maria came back from 0-4 down in the second set.

“All the German fans, also everybody, it was really amazing, and I felt it a lot, also today for me,” she said afterwards. “It’s a great event, it’s a really nice place. You really enjoy every day, so I’m really happy I could win it here.”

The 30 year old was appearing in her first WTA final.

Sevastova saw her lead collapse in the second set in a barrage of unforced errors and double faults.

Maria has a 4-year-old daughter and is coached by her husband. The 28-year-old Sevastova fell to 2-3 in career finals.

Bravo to Tatjana Maria! Who would have guessed that the first title in 2018 by a “working mother” would be her and not Serena or Vika?


Humble Rafa Says:

Mother Maria sounds like Mother Theresa.
