FILA Tennis Athlete Timea Babos Wins Taiwan Open
Babos only dropped one set the entire week en route to the title. In addition, the Hungarian – who is currently ranked No. 5 in doubles worldwide – reached the semifinals in the doubles competition as well, with Hao-Ching Chan.
"It’s been five-and-a-half weeks, amazing five-and-a-half weeks," Babos said following her win. "Starting with a quarterfinal [at the Shenzhen Open], winning my first Slam in doubles, beating a Top 10 player in singles [CoCo Vandeweghe in the first round of the Australian Open], and here winning another title in singles, it’s been amazing."
Babos has climbed to a world ranking of No. 35 in singles, and will play next in Doha (Feb. 12-18) before heading home to play in Budapest (Feb. 18-25).
