Kenin beats Friedsam to land second title in Lyon

Top seed Sofia Kenin won the inaugural Lyon Open with victory over unseeded German Anna-Lena Friedsam 6-2 4-6 6-4 in Sunday’s final and became the first player on the WTA tour to win two trophies in 2020.

Kenin, the new Australian Open champion, came into the tournament with a point to prove having not won a match in either Dubai or Qatar last month but the 21-year-old found herself pushed to three sets for the fourth consecutive round.

“It’s such a tough tournament. I’d like to congratulate Anna… great tournament, great match. It could have gone either way,” Kenin said at the trophy presentation.
