Petra Martic wins the Lausanne Open

Petra Martic won the Lausanne Open this Sunday by beating Serbian Olga Danilovic (6-4, 6-2). During the hour and a half of this final, Martic was superior to his opponent, especially physically. Probably tested by her career in Switzerland (she came from the qualifications and won the double), Danilovic did not have the physical resources to go for the second set, in which she clearly faltered.

Regularly threatened on her commitments (she notably had to save six break points at 3-3) without being able to be threatening on those of Martic (only one break point to defend, 72% of points behind her first ball), Danilovic does not did not have the weapons to fight as equals. Not to mention that luck was clearly on the side of the Croatian, especially in the game which gave her the break to lead 5-2 with an untouchable let ball for Danilovic and another which hung on the baseline and forced the Serb to an air shot.

Danilovic will however not have to ride his week in Lausanne. As we said, she arrived in the final after coming out of qualifying and she knocked on the door of the top 100 on Monday (106th). She also won the double alongside Kristina Mladenovic, receiving the package from their opponents in the final, Petra Martic, she won at 31 the second title of her career, after Istanbul in 2019, and will point Monday to 59th in the world .
