Vandeweghe besiegt Garcia im Finale der Stuttgarter Open

STUTTGART, Germany – CoCo Vandeweghe beat Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday, becoming the first American to reach the final of the Stuttgart Open since Lindsay Davenport in 2005.

In the final on Sunday, she meets fifth-placed Karolina Pliskova.

Pliskova beat six aces and turned three of their eight break chances into a 6: 4, 6: 2 against Anett Kontaveit from Estonia in the other semi-final.

Vandeweghe, the world’s number 1 player on Friday, Simona Halep, lost just two points behind her first serve and never had a break-ball against sixth-placed Garcia.

„It’s a good job of mine, and I can pat myself on the back, because that’s a really good performance for me,“ Vandeweghe said.

Vandeweghe, a wildcard entry, turned all three break chances when she took her third top 10 win of the week and advanced to her first clay court final.

Vandeweghe and Pliskova will get their first individual title of the year.
