Fiona Ferro wins Palermo Open

By The Assam Tribune

PALERMO, Aug 10: Fiona Ferro of France upset fourth-seeded Anett Kontaveit of Estonia in the Palermo Ladies Open final to win the first tour-level tennis title in five months.

Ferro, who is ranked 53rd in the world, won 6-2, 7-5 on Sunday.

She had lost just one set on her way to the final.

It was Ferro�s second WTA title and the 23-year-old sealed it on her second championship point when Kontaveit hit a return long.

Kontaveit has lost five of the six finals she has contested.

It was the first official tennis event � for men or women � since March when the coronavirus pandemic shut down sports across the globe.

There were strict health protocols, including fewer ball kids, a limited number of fans and no post-match handshakes between opponents.

Players and officials for the tournament were tested every four days for COVID-19 and one player who tested positive withdrew over the weekend. � AP
