Galfi takes Toowoomba
Former world No.1 junior Dalma Galfi of Hungary wins her third Pro Tour title in Toowoomba after defeating Brit Katy Dunne.
Hungarian teenager Dalma Galfi has won her third Australian Pro Tour title, earning a straight sets victory over Katy Dunne in Sunday’s Hutchinson Builders Toowoomba Tennis International final.
The former world No.1 junior and seventh seed took just over an hour to cruise past her unseeded opponent 6-2 6-4, capping off a stellar week after claiming the doubles crown with Slovakian Viktoria Kuzmova on Saturday.
“It’s really good. I’ve never done this before,” Galfi said on winning both titles in Toowoomba. “It was a great week. It was really windy but I managed to play well and I’m really happy about it.”
As it was in the semifinal when her power off the ground proved the difference against second-seeded American Asia Muhammad, Galfi simply had too many weapons for the 21-year-old Brit.
“I think mentally I was pretty OK today too,” she said. “I played well last week and it gave me some confidence.”
Galfi will now head to Cairns in a bid to defend the title she won last year.
“I like coming back to Australia. The conditions are always good for my tennis,” she said.
The best performed of the Australian women in Toowoomba was Arina Rodionova, the fifth seed falling to Dunne in straight sets at the quarterfinal stage.
