Minella takes first singles title at Bol Open


Mandy Minella won her first WTA singles title on Sunday with a straight-sets victory over Polona Hercog in the Bol Open final.

Minella saw off the seventh seed in relatively straightforward fashion, coming through 6-2 6-3 after one hour and 23 minutes.

Hercog is 92 places above Minella in the rankings, but paid the price for winning just half of her first-serve points.

Minella took full advantage by breaking Hercog six times as the 30-year-old finally ended her drought at the 125k series event.
