Bacsinszky rallies to win Monterrey tennis

Timea Bacsinszky wins Monterey tennis final.

Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland rallied to win the Monterrey Open for her second straight WTA Tour title in Mexico.

The fourth-seeded Bacsinszky beat third-seeded Caroline Garcia of France 4-6 6-2 6-4 after waiting out a four-hour rain delay in the second set in the hard-court event at Club Sonoma.

Bacsinszky also beat Garcia last week in Acapulco in the Mexico Open final, winning 6-3 6-0. Bacsinszky has three career WTA Tour titles.

Bacsinszky held serve in a 15-minute game to take a 5-3 lead in the final set.

Garcia held to cut the margin to 5-4 before Bacsinszky ended the match on serve nearly seven hours after they took the court.

Garcia won in Bogota last year for her lone tour title.

Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada and Alicja Rosolska of Poland won the doubles final on Sunday, beating Australian sisters Anastasia and Arina Rodionova 6-3 2-6 10-3.
