AUCKLAND: Julia Goerges drew on her experience to retain the WTA Auckland Classic title yesterday as she came from a set down to end the stunning run of Canadian teen sensation Bianca Andreescu.

There were tears from the 30-year-old German in an emotional celebration who took the match 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 with the final point coming when an Andreescu forehand went into the net.

“This win means a lot to me because not everything was working well in the beginning,” said the 30-year-old Goerges who needed all her experience and patience to recover from being down 4-5 in the second set after losing the first.

“I used my experience today and really went for it in the important moments. My coach came at 5-4 and helped me find some solutions,” she said.
