Qualifier and HEAD player Greta Arn of Germany won her first WTA singles title against fellow HEAD player Victoria Azarenka at the Estoril Open in Portugal. Arn battled through the two hour and 20 minute match with her HEAD Prestige racquet, defeating Azarenka 2-6, 6-1, 7-6(3).
“The feeling you can not explain,” said Arn on her win. “I am happy and I am just enjoying it, it is just so nice, you start to believe in yourself more and it is a positive feeling and positive feelings change you.”
Azarenka enjoyed a great run during the Women’s Estoril Open, beating out No. 2 seed Francesca Schiavone of Italy and No. 3 seed Lucie Safarova of Russia with her HEAD Flexpoint Instinct.
