Cornet wins Strasbourg International

Saturday - 5/25/2013, 12:19pm  ET

STRASBOURG, France (AP) -- Third-seeded Alize Cornet of France beat Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 7-6 (4), 6-0 Saturday to win the Strasbourg International final.

Hradecka saved two set points in the 10th game to force a tiebreaker. However, she doubled-faulted at 5-4 and Cornet took the set when Hradecka netted a forehand volley.

Cornet, runner-up last year, gave Hradecka little chance in the second set and clinched her third singles title when the Czech made a backhand error.

The Strasbourg International is a warm-up tournament for the French Open.
