Tsvetana Pironkova won her maiden singles title on the Women's Tennis Association tour in Sydney, after upsetting fifth seed Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-4 in the summit clash on Friday. "Where do I start? Mum, dad, I have a trophy," AAP quoted Pironkova, who peaked to her career-best ranking of 31 in 2010, following her semifinal appearance at the Wimbledon Championships.
"I'd like to dedicate my first title to a very special person, who is not among any more, my grandfather Nikola. I know you're here tonight. I love you," she added further. These are the highlights from the WTA final of Sydney: Meanwhile, Timea Babos and Lucie Safarova pulled off the doubles title, after registering a 7-5, 3-6, 10-7 win over top-ranked Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci in the finals.
