The Canadian conquered Monterrey Regio Sport

Laila Fernandez lived her stay in the city in an unbelievable way, and now the Canadian conquered Monterrey, by achieving her first singles title at the Monterey Open, defeating Swiss Victoria 6-1, 6-4. .
For Fernandez, it was his second final on Mexican soil, after the match he played last year at the Mexican Acapulco Open.

The match, which lasted 1 hour 29 minutes, was intensely developed by both players, especially by the 18-year-old Canadian girl of Ecuadorian descent, who did not give her opponent the facilities and in just 37 minutes he got the first set very easily.

Wounded inside, the Swiss came out in the second set, bent on giving the fight to the skilled Canadian, and he was even 4-3 and seemed to have arguments to return to the match.

However, with accurate shots from the back of the field and the agility of her legs that set her apart, the Canadian was a big hunk, returning and securing the second set and first title of her career.

With his victory, Fernandes collected $ 29,200 and 280 points for the world ranking, which, as of Monday, would improve the 88th Rank at which the tournament began.

“I would like to congratulate Victoria, I would like to thank everyone for this tournament, without you nothing would be possible,” said the winner.

“I want to thank my coach who was here and supported me in all the good and bad moments. My family and my coach who are at home, without you there is no such cup,” he added.
