LINZ, Austria (AP) — Camila Giorgi won her second career WTA title by defeating Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-3, 6-1 at the Upper Austria Ladies Linz on Sunday.

The fifth-seeded Italian, who also reached the final here in 2014, won her only previous title in 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, two years ago.

Playing in her first final of the year, Giorgi, who improved to 2-0 against the 119th-ranked Russian, used the only break point in the first set to go 5-3 up. She served out the set with an ace before winning the next four games to set up the victory.

Alexandrova, who came through qualifying, was also after her second career title, after winning in Limoges, France, in 2015.

The two top-seeded players, Julia Goerges and Kiki Bertens, failed to make it beyond the second round.
