American Alycia Parks makes it 10 wins in a row to win WTA $125K Open d’Angers
Alycia Parks will break into the top 80 after winning her second consecutive WTA $125K title
American Alycia Parks won her 10th match in a row at the WTA $125K level on Sunday, scoring a three-set win over German Anna-Lena Friedsam to win the Open d’Angers.
Alycia Parks, currently ranked No 100 in the world, defeated Friedsam in a tough three-set battle 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 at Arena Loire in Trélazé on Sunday afternoon.
Parks’ strong serve, which included six aces, helped set up her win today. She did not lose a single point on her first serve in the first set and just one in the deciding set.
In earlier matches this week, the young American had scored wins over China’s Shuai Zhang, the top seed (6-2, 6-3), Romania’s Jaqueline Cristian (6-4, 6-4), Czech Marketa Vondrousova (6-1, 7-6 (3)) and French wildcard Jessika Ponchet (4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4).
The 21-year-old Parks had won her first WTA $125K title last week in Andorra la Vella, which propelled her to the top 100 for the first time in her career. She will break into the top 80 on Monday, a new career-high for her.
