Big call, Zheng is 70 in the world and played in the Elite Trophy just a few months ago.

The one and only time they played, USO '14, Stef was the favourite and lost in 3 sets.

I like her recent form (awful first set this afternoon notwithstanding), and her tenacity and never-beaten attitude might just carry her through.

Fingers crossed!

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

I should qualify, I was referring to how she played in the first set. Truly awful.

It's a bit of a cliché, but one of the key mental skills of the game is to put the last point behind you, and concentrate on the next one.

And Stef is doing this superbly, IMHO. Particularly when her back is to the wall.

With a new serve motion she can't take preparation time off the opponent any more but a steady ball toss can give her more chances to develop than losses.
Looks like the windy condition has thankfully broken Chang's rhythm at the end.

Today is a good day.

God's in His heaven, and all's well with the world.

30 juicy points.

Talk about winning ugly, though. Never seen her play worse, but boy, our girl is TOUGH!

Press clippings.

From Vavel:
First off, the biggest event of the week was won by Switzerland's Stefanie Voegele. The former world number 42 has struggled with injuries and consistency in recent years, forcing her to drop out of the top 100 for the first time since 2012. However, after losing in the second round of qualifying at the Australian Open, Voegele, seeded second, rebounded in impressive style, outclassing Belgium's An-Sophie Mestach in nearly every department to win the $50,000 event in Andrezieux-Boutheon, a commune of the Loire department in central France.


From 20 Minuten:
Die Aargauerin Stefanie Vögele (WTA 118) zeigte beim mit 50'000 Dollar dotierten ITF-Turnier in Andrézieux ansteigende Form. Die als Nummer 2 gesetzte Schweizerin gewann den Final gegen die Belgierin An-Sophie Mestach (WTA 163) deutlich 6:1, 6:2. Sie machte damit die Punkte, die sie von der letztjährigen Zweitrundenqualifikation am Australian Open verliert, mehr als wett.

Vögele war im Final deutlich frischer als ihre Gegnerin. Im Halbfinal am Samstag hatte die 25-Jährige von der Aufgabe der Französin Océane Dodin profitiert, während Mestach rund drei Stunden auf dem Platz gestanden hatte. Eine Runde zuvor hatte Vögele ihre Landsfrau Viktorija Golubic, die am nächsten Wochenende mit dem Schweizer Fedcup-Team in Leipzig auf Deutschland trifft, in drei Sätzen niedergerungen.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Solid win from Stefi. She has to be glad that she survived Amric and Golubic.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Yay! First title in 4 years!

Glad I stayed up, even if the stream was v laggy.
And now it's cut out just before the presentation. Sigh.

So happy for her. A piece of silverware at long last. On to Taiwan with confidence and momentum.

I think that's correct. Her last final was the Toyota ITF in 2012. She made the semi's of a few WTA events since (2013 Memphis, Charleston, Luxembourg, Linz, 2014 Baku, 2015 Luxembourg).

And now Stef is in a final, for the first time since 2012 if I'm not mistaken.

Entering this tournament was a good move for her, as she loses 70 points from last year's AO.
