Coco Gauff cruised to her second career singles title with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Qiang Wang of China on Saturday in the finals of the Emilia-Romagna Open in Parma, Italy.

The third-seeded American dispatched her sixth-seeded opponent in 74 minutes after fending off four break points. The title was her first since winning in Linz, Austria in 2019.

Gauff, 17, has won 20 of her last 26 matches on the WTA Tour. She also captured the doubles title with Caty McNally on Saturday, as the duo posted a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Andreja Klepac and Darija Jurak 6-3, 6-2.

Serbia Open

Fourth-seeded Paula Badosa of Spain claimed her first career WTA title after Croatian qualifier Ana Konjuh retired due to injury in the second set in Belgrade.

Badosa, who has won 13 of her last 15 matches on tour, was leading 6-2, 2-0 before Konjuh elected to call it a day due to a right hip injury.

Badosa advanced to her first WTA singles final after cruising to a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Bulgaria’s Viktoriya Tomova in 63 minutes. Konjuh punched her ticket with a 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4) win over Maria Camila Osorio Serrano of Colombia.
