Lausanne F: Fiona Ferro d. [3] Alize Cornet 6-1 2-6 6-1

I am very dissapointed . But Ferro plays with to much power for Alize today.

Con grats, Fiona.

Wow, I hadn't seen Ferro play in a minute... she has really developed well. Her game overall has become more powerful, she has improved her serve, and her forehand is beautiful.
On her way to the top 50 hopefully.

Well done Fiona! Her improvements seem to work fast!

Her athleticism seems to grow and she looked quite fresh all the way. Fitness.

Congrats on your first title! And good from Alizé to defend it.

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

With Ferro's win today Buzarnescu has now lost at two tournaments in a row in R2 to the eventual champion. That's some coincidence.

First final, first title for Ferro and now she solidifies her place in the top 100.

Re: Lausanne F: Fiona Ferro d. [3] Alize Cornet 6-1 2-6 6-1

and she's humble in victory

great finale and fight back by Alize in the 2nd set

Congrats to Fiona who keeps improving and believing in herself

Career breakthrough week for Ferro. Impressive year for her on the clay.

Disappointing for Cornet to not defend her ranking points from last year, although a great effort to defend most of them & good fight in the final.

Re: Lausanne F: Fiona Ferro d. [3] Alize Cornet 6-1 2-6 6-1

Ferro was one of those French open wild card choices a few years ago that left me scratching my head thinking "why waste that spot in the main draw?" But she really has improved steadily and become a solid player. Like others have said she's developed weapons and if she can continue improving she's going to be dangerous for years to come.
Sad for alize as I was hoping she'd win but still a good week and hopefully spurs on a good US open series for her.

Ferro's power was too much for Cornet to handle.......Except the 2nd set when Ferro became an UFE machine.

To be honest, most of the people who were whining about Ferro getting WCs knew nothing about her game and just because she received a few in a row as a YOUNG hope, people labeled her useless - when she actually consistently put up good fights, often against top 30 players (Lisicki, Muguruza, etc). Her body and athleticism just took longer to develop but the talent and determination has always been there.

Awful for tennis, Ferro was 1-6 2-5 down to Buzarnescu, to understand what kind of player she is...
