Annika Beckwins her second career title in Canada

Second success for Annika Beck on the WTA Tour: the Porsche Team Germany player won the indoor tournament in Quebec, Canada on Sunday after beating the Latvian Jelena Ostapenko in two straight sets 6-2, 6-2 in the final. For the 21-year old German, who was supported within the Porsche Talent Team Germany set-up in which time she won the 2012 French Open junior title in Paris, it was her second WTA tournament win in her fourth appearance in a final. Her first success came in Luxemburg in 2014.

Three weeks ago at the US Open in New York, Annika Beck lost to Jelena Ostapenko in the first round. This time around however, she gave her opponent no chance. She dominated the match almost right from the start and, playing determinedly throughout, closed out the match in only 53 minutes. The win has enabled her to climb back into the top 50 in the WTA rankings where she will be listed as No. 43 from Monday. It means she is the fourth best German behind her Porsche Team Germany teammates Angelique Kerber, Andrea Petkovic und Sabine Lisicki and would therefore be automatically qualified for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“Going to the Olympics would naturally be a dream,” she said. “At the moment though, I’m just so happy to have played so consistently here in Quebec and to have won this fantastic tournament. I hope I can continue to move forwards. The win will give me back the belief in my game that has been lacking recently and with it the necessary confidence.”
