Gauff beats Ostapenko in Austria Open final to claim first WTA title

Linz: American teenager Coco Gauff won her first WTA title on Sunday, by beating Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 to capture the Austria Open.



The 15-year-old Gauff, who reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and third round at the US Open, bounced back after losing a one-sided second set to beat the Latvia comfortably.

Gauff had earlier called Linz "my little lucky place" and its charm held for the teenager through the final despite a late wobble. After racing out to a 5-0 lead in the deciding set, Gauff dropped two late games to Ostapenko before closing out the match.
