Baku Cup: Margarita Gasparyan denies giantkiller Patricia Tig to take maiden title

Baku: Russian Margarita Gasparyan won her maiden WTA title on Sunday beating Patricia Tig of Romania in three sets 6-3, 5-7, 6-0 to land the Baku Cup.

Gasparyan, 20 and ranked 112th in the world, looked to be in trouble when the year older Tig showed the kind of form she had on Saturday to topple top seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, ranked 100 places above her in 42nd, and levelled the match by taking an enthralling second set.

However, Gasparyan, who came through qualifying to make both the main draws of the French Open and Wimbledon this year losing in the first round to eventual champion Serena Williams at the latter, gathered herself together and whisked her way through the deciding set.
