Barbora Krejcikova returned to the winner circle for the first time in over a year besting home favorite Anett Kontaveit 6-2, 6-3 in Tallin, Estonia.
The win was Krejcikova’s fourth of her career and first since Prague in July of 2021.
“Really proud how I was able to bring my best performance for the final,” Krejcikova said. “I was expecting that Anett is going to play fast and she would try to put me under pressure from the first point. So I was just trying to play my game, and just trying to eliminate that.
“I just really wanted to go out there and play my best tennis and just try to enjoy the final, because it took me a lot of fight and energy to get there.”
En route, Krejcikova beat the top 3 seeds in order, topping Beatriz Haddad Maia, then Belinda Bencic followed by the top seed Kontaveit.
“Every trophy is special, especially in singles right now, where this year was really tough, so it means a lot,” Krejcikova added. “It was a really amazing week, a special week.”
The world No. 4 Kontaveit was seeking her first title since February in St. Petersburg.
