Bertens beats Pous-Tio in Morocco for maiden WTA title|
Fes, Morocco (Sports Network) - Dutch qualifier Kiki Bertens topped Spain's
Laura Pous-Tio in straight sets to capture the Moroccan Grand Prix title.
Bertens, in her first-ever WTA main draw, slugged through a tough first set
before rolling in the second en route to a 7-5, 6-0 win. She dropped just one
set all week.
Pous-Tio had a little more experience than Bertens, having turned pro in 2003,
but was playing in her first WTA final. She entered this week with a match
record of 1-4 in 2012.
The victory was worth a first prize of $37,000.
