It has been a breakthrough season for Sherif, who broke into the top 50 for the first time in her career in July. She has now won 4 WTA 125 finals and is yet to lose one. This was the first time she won in three sets in the finals of a WTA event. Baindl gave Sherif a good run for her money and the latter needed five championship points before closing out the match.
