Highlight Story

Ana Ivanovic routed Patty Schnyder 6-1, 6-2 in the final of the Generali Ladies on Sunday to win her first WTA Tour title in two years and ninth overall.

The 22-year-old Serb won her last title at the same event in 2008 after taking the French Open title and becoming the top-ranked player for 12 weeks.

Ivanovic, now ranked No. 29, played her first final in 19 months.

Initially she had not planned to appear at the event but accepted a late wild card after Serena Williams pulled out with a foot injury.

Schnyder, who has 11 career titles, was playing her third final in Linz. The Swiss also lost the 2005 and 2007 finals.
