Caroline Garcia beat Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 6-4 to win the inaugural Mallorca Open on Sunday.
Garcia is a player better known for her expertise on clay than on grass. However, that never stopped her from storming to victory in Spain on the fast surface.
In a wild opening set there were a total of five breaks, three for Garcia and only two for Sevastova. The French woman won it 6-3.
In the second stanza, the match followed a far more orderly flow. The decisive moment came with the scores locked at 2-2 and Sevastova serving.
The Latvian was broken after a lengthy game and Garcia held her nerve to close-out the set and the match in clinical fashion thereafter.
