Minella is 30 years old and is ranked 186th in the world. She was not a tournament favorite but her solid performance and the injury of Ana Konjuh in the semifinals in the second set opened her the doors for the first WTA title of the career.
Hercog was nervous in the final and Minella played flawless. In the second set Slovenian even had a 2:0 lead but she lost it and at the end trophy went to Luxemburg.
The audience at the finals had an opportunity to enjoy in the performance of the Cuban ballerina Ana Karla Suarez, the star of the music video “Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias.
See you next year !
