Julia Goerges wins her first WTA title in Bad Gastein.

 Julia Goerges took Bad Gastein by storm on Sunday to win her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title, beating Alize Cornet in a rain delayed semifinal then defeating Timea Bacsinszky later in the day in the final.

Goerges, who had never played Cornet or Bacsinszky before, was strong on serve in both matches, maintaining a first serve percentage of over 60% and winning over 70% of those points throughout the day – and that helped her record 61 64 victories over both the Frenchwoman and the Swiss.

Before this week, Goerges’ best results on the Tour were four semifinal finishes. Not only did she break that personal best with her win over Cornet, who had taken out No.1 seed Andrea Petkovic earlier in the week, but she carried that momentum into the title match against No.2 seed Bacsinszky.

Goerges has now won 13 of her last 14 matches,
