Romanian Irina Begu wins singles and doubles trophies at BRD Bucharest Open

Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu has managed a great performance at the local tennis tournament BRD Bucharest Open 2017.

She won both the singles and doubles trophies on Sunday, July 23, thus becoming the first Romanian player with single and double wins in the same WTA tournament after Virginia Ruzici in 1985.

In the women’s singles final, Irina-Camelia Begu, seeded No.7, defeated Germany’s Julia Goerges 6-3, 7-5.

Later the same day, Begu and compatriot Raluca Olaru also raised the doubles trophy, defeating the Belgian-Dutch team made of Elise Mertens and Demi Schuurs in the final, 6-3, 6-3.

This is Irina Begu’s fifth WTA doubles title after the ones won in Rio de Janeiro in 2014, Seoul in 2014, 's-Hertogenbosch in 2013, and Hobart in 2012.

"It is amazing. I never thought that I could win two trophies in one week, especially in Romania, in Bucharest, my hometown," Begu said, reports WTAtennis.com.

Romania’s Simona Halep won the singles trophy in Bucharest last year. However, she decided not to play at the local tournament this year.

The 2017 edition of BRD Bucharest Open took place between July 15 and July 23.
