Nadia Petrova beats Bethanie Mattek for Bell Challenge title


Russian top seed Nadia Petrova fought back from a set and a break down to get past Bethanie Mattek 4-6 6-4 6-1 in the final of the Bell Challenge in Quebec City, Canada.

American world No.43 Mattek, probably most famous for her fashion sense, failed to win her first WTA title in her premier appearance in a WTA final. World No.11 Petrova, on the other hand, clinched her ninth career title and her second this season after winning in Cincinnati in August.

The Bell Challenge was the last tournament on the regular WTA schedule. The tennis season ends next week with the Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha where the top eight players of the year will compete for a share of the prize money of $4,550,000.
