Torro-Flor wins first title

Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor won her first WTA sinagles title today. Torro-Flor defeated Romina Oprandi 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the Marrakech final. Both players were unseeded; Oprandi took top seed Daniela Hantuchova out in the semifinals.

Torro-Flor is the sixth woman to win her first singles title in 2014.

Oprandi had a better outcome in doubles. She and partner Gabine Muguruza won the championship when they defeated Katarzyna Piter and Marnyna Zanevska 4-6, 6-2, 11-9.

The Portugal Open begins Monday. The top seed is Carla Suarez Navarro, who was injured this week in Stuttgart. The second seed is wild card Eugenie Bouchard. Defending champion Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova isn't playing. Both Torro-Flor and Oprandi are in the draw.
