Caroline Garcia claims ninth career title in Poland

Caroline Garcia defeated Ana Bogdan to claim the BNP Paribas Poland Open Crown on Sunday.

The Frenchwomen overpowered first-time finalist Bogdan to win 6-4, 6-1 on the clay courts of Warsaw in Poland to win her ninth career title. Garcia converted five out of seven break points and needed just 32 minutes to wrap up the final set.

"It was a tough match, every final is always tricky," Garcia said afterwards, as per wtatennis.com.

"You know you're at the last step and you want to make it happen, to hold the trophy in your hand.

"But that's what both players want. Maybe today is an experience I had from the past finals, [they] helped me to manage my emotions a little bit better and be able to play my game, to be very aggressive and to know what I had to do."

The title is Garcia's second in five weeks, as she also claimed the Bad Homburg title in Germany in June. Earlier in the year on the doubles scene, Garcia claimed her second grand slam doubles title at the French Open.
