On Sunday the Russian tennis player Nadezhda Petrova became a winner of the Citi Open Tournament in Washington, reported by Agence France-Presse.


In the tournament's final Petrova, who was second-seeded, bet top-seeded Israeli tennis player Shahar Peer 7-5, 6-2.


      “I’ve been waiting for this patiently,” Petrova said.


Presently Nadezhda Petrova is ranked 32nd in the world. She has defeated 24 Shahar Peer in all six of their meetings.

      During the whole play Petrova has been taking advantage of a strong serve to control the match. Petrova won 30 of 36 first point serves and also had seven aces to just one for the Israeli. Peer had five double-faults in the first set.


      Peer came in after losing five straight first-round matches, but made it to the finals of a WTA event for the first time since January 2010.


      It’s the 10th career WTA title for Petrova and her first win since 2008 at Quebec City. She also took part in the final of WTA Competition in August of 2010.


      The Citi Open Tournament started in 2011 where it was held July 25 to 31 at the Tennis Center at College Park, Maryland, near Washington, D.C. The prize money of the tournament is 220 thousand dollars.
