WTA Bad Gastein | First tournament victory in singles
She had to double up on finals day but it didn't stop her from her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title. Julia took Bad Gastein by storm on Sunday, beating Alizé Cornet in a rain delayed semifinal then defeating Timea Bacsinszky later in the day in the final.
Julia, who had never played Cornet or Bacsinszky before, was strong on serve in both matches, maintaining a first serve percentage of over 60% and winning over 70% of those points throughout the day - and that helped her record 61 64 victories over both the Frenchwoman and the Swiss.
