A Luxembourg Open look back
With Jelena Ostapenko hitting the title at WTA BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open final, we had witnessed one excellent and well-organized tournament. It was a blast!
Jelena Ostapenko picked up her first title in over two years at the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open, charging past defending champion Julia Goerges in straight sets.
The 2017 Roland Garros champion from Latvia claimed her third career WTA singles title -- and her first title in over two years -- by defeating defending champion and No.2 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, 6-4, 6-1 in the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open final.
"Of course it’s great to finish the season with winning a title, especially in the last tournament," Ostapenko told the press, after her victory. "I enjoyed this week so much, and I think I played really well today. I just like to finish the year this way."
Ostapenko had signaled an end-of-season return to form by reaching her first final of the year at Linz last week, and she went one further in Luxembourg, clinching her first singles trophy since Seoul in September of 2017, and ending the stellar nine-match winning streak of 26th-ranked Goerges at the event in the process.
In the first meeting between the two powerful players, both of whom have been ranked in the Top 10, it was Ostapenko, a wild card into the event, who blasted her way to the trophy after an hour of play. The World
No.63 zoomed to victory with six aces, winning a sturdy 83 percent of points off of her first serve.
