Cornet wins Strasbourg International
STRASBOURG, France -- Third-seeded Alize Cornet of France beat Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 7-6 (4), 6-0 Saturday to win the Strasbourg International final.
Hradecka saved two set points in the 10th game to force a tiebreaker. However, she doubled-faulted at 5-4 and Cornet took the set when Hradecka netted a forehand volley.
Cornet, runner-up last year, gave Hradecka little chance in the second set and clinched her third singles title when the Czech made a backhand error.
The Strasbourg International is a warm-up tournament for the French Open.
