Hungarian Greta Arn won the second WTA title of her career by beating defending champion Yanina Wickmayer at the ASB Classic in Auckland.

Arn, 31, turned professional in 1997 and won her first main tour event at Estoril in 2007. The world number 88 was originally due to play the qualifying event in Auckland before being promoted to the main draw after other players withdrew. Against Wickmayer she completed a tournament in which she also took the scalp of top seed Maria Sharapova. Wickmayer, the second seed, was outplayed as she succumbed 6-3 6-3 to Arn. Arn said: “I feel unbelievable, I’m so happy. “It’s a dream come true. I just stayed focused, did my thing, played one ball after another… and didn’t think about who she is or what ranking she is. “My game plan was to move her around a lot, because she had a tough match yesterday; she’s a great player and I have a lot of respect for her.” Belgian Wickmayer, ranked number 23 in the world, said: “I made way too many mistakes. It wasn’t my day.”
