Coetzer Wins Mexican Open for Second Time

Coetzer Wins Mexican Open for Second Time

.c The Associated Press

ACAPULCO, Mexico (March 2) -- Amanda Coetzer of South Africa won the Mexican Open for the second time in three years, using a more-controlled game to overcome Mariana Diaz-Oliva of Argentina 7-5, 6-3 on Sunday.

Coetzer, seeded second and ranked 23rd in the world, also won the tournament in 2001, broke her opponent's serve in the first game of the second set to take control. She needed just one hour, 56 minutes to win.

Diaz-Oliva is the world's No. 104 and was not seeded, but the 26-year-old hoped to use a speedier serve and a more powerful forehand to keep her opponent on the run.

Diaz-Oliva broke Coetzer's serve in the first set's fourth game to take a 3-1 lead. She then appeared to lose a step, dropping four straight games during a stretch when she double-faulted three times and saw her long ground strokes carry out of bounds on the clay court.

Agustin Calleri used blistering ground strokes to out-duel fellow Argentine Mariano Zabaleta 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 and win the tournament's men's singles title Saturday night. It was the 26-year-old's first major tournament victory.

In men's doubles Saturday, top-ranked Mark Knowles of the Bahamas and Daniel Nestor of Canada overcame Spaniards David Ferrer and Fernando Vicente 6-3, 6-3. Knowles and Nestor finished the tournament without losing a set.
