Tournament Info


The red clay of the tennis courts at the NÜRNBERGER Gastein Ladies is in sharp contrast to the green of the surrounding forests and the white of the Alps mountain range.

 Among the WTA stars who collected their first career titles at Bad Gastein are Francesca Schiavone, who captured the inaugural event in 2007, and 2009 champion Andrea Petkovic. Two Austrians - Yvonne Meusburger in 2007 and Patricia Mayr-Achleitner in 2011 - have been runners-up here but none have taken the title in their home country as of yet.

 Lucie Hradecka was victorious with four different partners from 2007 to 2011, making her the fifth woman of the Open Era to win a doubles tournament at least five consecutive times.

 Bad Gastein is a spa town in the Austrian state of Salzburg, situated at the northern rim of the Hohe Tauern national park. "Bad" means "spa", reflecting the town's history as a health resort. The townscape features historic multi-story hotel buildings erected on the steep slopes.

Cornet Stays Strong, Conquers Bad Gastein



Saying afterwards she feels Austrian when she plays here, Alizé Cornet returned to the WTA winner's circle Sunday, edging Yanina Wickmayer in a tight two-setter to take the NÜRNBERGER Gastein Ladies.
 
The No.7-seeded Cornet didn't drop a set all week and kept that going in the final, albeit barely - she was just a few points from losing both, serving 4-5 0-15 in the first set and 5-6 15-30 in the second - but the Frenchwoman hung tough every time and crafted a 75 76(1) victory over the No.2-seeded Belgian.
 
"I was playing a lot of chip and slice today - she plays really aggressively, and I can't play like her or she will kill me," Cornet said. "I knew it would be a really tough match. Yanina's a really good player. I was about to lose the second set but I fought so much and tried to stay calm and positive, and that helped.
 
"I played well on the important points and that's how I won in two sets."
 
Cornet was understandably emotional with her second WTA title, especially given her first one came all of four years ago at Budapest in 2008.
 
"It has been four years I haven't won a singles title, so it's just happiness now. I'm so happy," Cornet beamed. "It's been a super week. I really love this tournament. I love the people here and I feel everybody loves me as well. I'm not Austrian, but I feel like I'm Austrian when I'm here. It's my favorite tournament.
 
"What more can I ask for than winning it?"
 
Wickmayer had reached her eighth WTA final and is now 3-5 in those.
 
"It was a good week - I'm disappointed not to win, but she was better than me today and I just have to accept it and play better next time," Wickmayer said. "I'm excited to move onto grass now and hopefully I keep playing well."
 
The doubles final saw No.4 seeds Jill Craybas and Julia Goerges squeak by No.1 seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Petra Martic, 67(4) 64 119, a first-time WTA doubles title for best friends Craybas and Goerges - for Craybas it was her fifth individual WTA doubles title and for Goerges it was her fourth.
