Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut and Australia’s Daria Gavrilova warmed up for the US Open by winning key warm-up titles. Top seed Bautista Agut claimed his second ATP title of the season at the Winston-Salem Open with a 6-4, 6-4 win over first-time ATP finalist Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The triumph comes after his January victory in Chennai, and his two titles in 2017 match his career best for a season after he also won two tournaments in 2014. “I had a great week,” he said. “I hope to continue this momentum in New York.” The Spaniard seized early leads in each set before Dzumhur battled back. Bautista Agut led 4-1 in the first and 3-1 in the second before the Bosnian rallied. But 15th-ranked Bautista Agut, who didn’t drop a set all tournament, was ultimately too much for Dzumhur, whose challenge ended with a forehand long on Bautista Agut’s first match point. “Best week for me so far,” said Dzumhur. “It was an unexpected good week for me and definitely one that I will always remember.” Gavrilova, meanwhile, claimed her first WTA title after rallying for a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Dominika Cibulkova in the final at New Haven. The 23-year-old, who ousted top seed and defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska in the semi-finals, followed up with a hard-fought triumph over second-seeded Cibulkova that saw them duel for two hours and 45 minutes on the hard courts of Connecticut. For Gavrilova, ranked 26th in the world, it was a perfect curtain-raiser to the US Open, the final Grand Slam of the year that starts on Monday in Flushing Meadows. She denied Slovakia’s Cibulkova, ranked 11th in the world, a ninth career WTA title. When she drilled a forehand winner to seal the victory, Gavrilova leapt into the air and tossed her racquet in celebration. She had turned the tide in the second set with a break for 3-2, winning a marathon game that included five deuces and one rally of 30 shots. Gavrilova will have a couple of days to savour the triumph before launching her US Open campaign against US qualifier Allie Kiick.
