Justine Henin with her 2007 Zurich Open trophyTop-seeded Justine Henin beat world No.18 Tatiana Golovin 6-4 6-4 in the Zurich Open final on Sunday to win her ninth title of the year and to take the trophy in Zurich for the second time in her career.

In the opening set, Golovin was the one who broke first to take the 3-1 lead, but she didn’t manage to hold her serve and win the set. Henin broke Golovin two times, in the seventh and ninth game, to take the first set.

In the beginning of the second set, Golovin saved two break points, but the third one she didn’t and Henin took the lead. Golovin came back by immediately making a re-break but then dropped serve once more to fall 2-1 behind with what proved to be the last break of the match.

The 19-year-old played well, but not well enough to beat absolutely fantastic Justine Henin. Anyway, despite losing this final, Tatiana Golovin will climb the rankings to No.15.
