FEZ, Morocco (AP) - Dutch qualifier Kiki Bertens won her first WTA title by defeating Spaniard Laura Pous-Tio 7-5, 6-0 in the Grand Prix SAR final on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Bertens dropped serve twice but used her superior returns to break Pous-Tio three times in each set.

Bertens ran away with the second set, conceding only two points on her serve. Pous-Tio managed to win only 41 percent of her first-serve points.
