Ukraine’s Alona Bondarenko claimed her second career WTA title by beating Israel’s Shahar Peer 6-2 6-4 in the final of the Moorilla Hobart International.
Despite dropping serve twice in the second set Bondarenko won her first title since Luxembourg in 2006.
Peer wasn’t satisfied with her performance, saying she couldn’t find her rhythm throughout the match. Last year Peer won back-to-back titles in Guangzhou and Tashkent, after a three-year drought.
Bondarenko is seeded 31st and Peer 29th at the Australian Open which starts on Monday.
Alona doesn’t get as many titles as she deserves. I like to see her win more in singles.
I agree P!inky. The Bondarenkos actually have some variety in their game and it sucks that they aren’t top twenty players.
Their games are great to watch, but the best results slip through their hands, they are not consistent enough.
