Barthel Tops Scheepers for Swedish Open Title

(July 20, 2014) In a battle between tow unseeded players, Mona Barthel beat Chanelle Scheepers 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the Swedish Open on Sunday.

For the 61st ranked German, it’s her third WTA career title, her first on clay.

“It’s been an amazing week for me,” said the 24-year-old, “I cannot believe I won the title! It was like a perfect week for me. I was fighting a lot – in some matches I was behind, and I was just fighting for every point. I’m just happy everything worked out. I love this tournament so much.”

This was the first WTA tournament since Hobart in January 2009 in which no seeds made the quarterfinals. This was the second final in tournament history featuring two unseeded players.
