Bastad - Germany's Laura Siegemund clinched her first WTA title in Bastad after defeating Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 7-5, 6-1 in Sunday's final.

Siegemund, who reached the final on clay in Stuttgart in April as a qualifier, navigated her way through a tight first set before powering to victory in 83 minutes.

The 28-year-old is projected to climb to a career-high of 32 in the world rankings after overcoming first-time finalist Siniakova.

"This is one of my favourite tournaments, and I can't believe I won this one," said Siegemund.

"I was in good shape, and was playing well last week as well. I knew I could do well here but winning the whole thing is something you might not really expect or think about."

Result from the WTA event in Bastad on Sunday (x denotes seeding):


Laura Siegemund (GER x6) bt Katerina Siniakova (CZE) 7-5, 6-1
