Francesca Di Lorenzo captured a second title at the National Bank Challenger Sunday, teaming up with fellow American Ronit Yurovsky to beat the Canadian pair of Marie-Alexandre Leduc/Charlotte Robillard-Millette 1-6, 7-5, 10-6 in the women’s doubles final.
“They were pretty aggressive in the first set, putting pressure on us,” Di Lorenzo said. “They were coming to the net a lot and we were a little bit defensive. In the second set I think we put the pressure on them more.”
Di Lorenzo was 10-0 in total matches played in Winnipeg.
“It’s been a good tournament,” said Di Lorenzo. “I’m very happy. I think we played well in doubles and I think I did well in singles. It’s exciting to be here. I love playing here, so hopefully I’ll be back.”
