The french Fiona Ferro, number 53 in the world at the beginning of the week, won her second WTA title this Sunday by winning in her second final, the tournament in Palermo (Italy), to the Estonian Anett Kontaveit, 22 in the world and starting as the fourth seed.

Ferro, 23, debuted his record in July last year at the Lausanne (Switzerland) tournament, in the ‘International’ category, and this Sunday he won his second WTA final by beating Kontaveit, from 22, by 6-2 and 7-5 in an hour and 45 minutes.
The French, who this Monday he will enter the Top-50 of the world rankings for the first time, he scored the first command after breaking his rival’s serve twice.
In the second set, more even, both players achieved two ‘breaks’ and it seemed that it would be resolved in the tiebreaker, but a new break by Ferro in the eleventh game ended up unbalancing the balance on her side.
Kontaveit, quarterfinalist this year at the Australian Open (fell to the Romanian Simona halep), he’s still out of luck in the finals. She has played six and only won one, in June 2017 in Rosmalen (Netherlands) in two sets against the Russian Natalia Vikhlyantseva.
