Kerber lifts Sydney International title
Angelique Kerber has claimed her first title since 2016 by winning the Sydney International
The German player defeated Ashleigh Barty in straight sets, 6-4 6-4, after an hour and 11 minutes in the Sydney final to win her 11th career title, the first one since 2016 US Open.
Kerber, who won two grand slam titles in 2016, will carry winning form and confidence into the Australian Open.
Gavrilova was playing her third successive Australian opponent in Sydney. She reached the No. 1 ranking in September that year and was seeded No. 1 for last year's Australian Open, but was upset in the first round and her year-end ranking dropped to 21. Giorgi beat defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 6-2.
"It feels very good to win my first title in my first tournament this year".
Later, an emotional Bautista Agut dedicated his victory to his family in Spain.
The German endured a tough campaign a year ago, but appears close to recapturing her best form, claiming a title to begin the season with a 6-4 6-4 win over Barty.
"Being now in the semis again here, it's really a good feeling, especially that I had the goal, to have a lot of matches before going to Melbourne". "Juan Martin is a great champion, he's very tough to beat and I played two fantastic games in the last two games of the match".
Barty held just once in the first set but reversed the momentum in the second when she broke in the ninth game after Gavrilova double faulted twice, which prompted the 23-year-old to smash her racquet in frustration and earn a code violation. The German would ultimately take their match in three sets, cruising through the final two sets against the American.
