Qiang Wang conquers her second title — WTA Guangzhou

Wang Qiang claimed her second WTA title in three months with a dominant victory over Yulia Putintseva at the Guangzhou Open.

It was the second title on home soil for the two-time Asian Games singles champion, who defeated compatriot Zheng Saisai to win the Jiangxi Open in Nanchang in July.

Wang struck 25 winners to 11 unforced errors, while Putintseva endured an error-strewn display, making 22 unforced errors.

Gionta also earned the respect of many of his former teammates in Buffalo, with a number of them attending the news conference. Gionta gave no thought to playing this season and said , "I'm at peace and feel great about the decision I've made".

Putintseva had powered through the week up to her convincing 6-1, 6-4 victory over American Bernarda Pera in the semi-final, but stumbled against Wang with almost two dozen unforced errors, including four double faults.

"I played four good matches, and today wasn't as good as the previous matches", Putintseva said after the match. "I'm just happy that I played a few matches, won some matches here".

In the doubles final, Monique Adamczak and Jessica Moore from Australia won their first WTA title as a team with a 4-6, 7-5, 10-4 victory over Danka Kovinic from Montenegro and Vera Lapko from Belarus. This season, she came to the Asian swing after sealing her best result in NY with a third-round exit losing to Svitolina: a win would be best-by-ranking of career, bettering defeat of No.9 V.Williams at 2018 Roland Garros.
