Linz, Austria - Top-ranked Victoria Azarenka won her sixth WTA title of the season on Sunday by beating Julia Goerges 6-3, 6-4 at the Generali Ladies.

Azarenka, who now has 14 career titles, extended her unbeaten run without conceding a set to 13 matches since losing the US Open final in September.

Azarenka broke the fifth-seeded Goerges in the opening game and again at 5-3 to take the first set. That still made the German the first opponent to win more than two games in one set against the Belarusian at this tournament.

Azarenka won 12 consecutive points early in the second set to help build a 5-0 lead. She then lost four straight games before closing out the victory on her fifth match point.
