Linz remains magic for Camila Giorgi as the No. 5 seed and former finalist won her second career title, beating Russian qualifier Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-3, 6-1 for the Upper Austria Ladies Linz championship.
The Italian won her first career title at the Ricoh Open in ‘s-Hertogenbosch on grass in 2015.

After the first set went with serve through the first seven games, Giorgi lost only one game from that point on, beating the first-time WTA finalist Alexandrova in under an hour. She improved to 2-4 in career finals, appearing in her first championship round since 2016 Katowice.

The Italian dropped only one set in her run to the final where she did not face a seeded player all week. Alexandrova upset No. 9 seed Katerina Siniakova in the first round and No. 6 Alexandra Pavlyuchenkova to reach the semifinals.

Giorgi is projected to move to a career-high ranking and a likely seeding at the 2019 Australian Open, and Alexandrova will move back into the Top 100.
