Goerges wins Gastein Ladies final

BAD GASTEIN, Austria -- Julia Goerges of Germany has won her first WTA Tour title in her first final, beating Switzerland's Timea Bacsinszky 6-1, 6-4 in the Gastein Ladies.

The 65th-ranked Goerges broke Bacsinszky three times and won the opening set when the second-seeded Swiss double-faulted on set point.

Bacsinszky led 4-2 in the second set but then was broken twice as Goerges wrapped up the victory.

Goerges had beaten France's Alize Cornet by the same score in a semifinal earlier Sunday that had been rescheduled from the previous day because of rain.

The $220,000 Gastein Ladies was the last clay-court tournament of the season.
