PATTAYA, Thailand, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Angelique Widjaja of Indonesia captured her second career WTA Tour title Sunday, sweeping past Korea's Yoon Jeong Cho, 6-2, 6-4, in the all-Asian final of the Volvo Women's Open.
One day after toppling top seed Tatiana Panova of Russia, the 18-year-old Widjaja triumphed in her second career final.
In September 2001, she triumphed at Bali, becoming the sixth player to win her WTA debut event and the lowest-ranked player ever to win a tour stop at No. 579.
Earlier this season, Widjaja reached the semifinals at Shanghai and advanced to the second round in her debuts at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. She was a top junior player a year ago, capturing the Girls' crown to become the first Indonesian to win a Wimbledon title.
While she lost in her first WTA Tour final, Cho capped her best season as a professional. In July, she won her second career ITF Circuit title. A month later, the 23-year-old was victorious in her first Grand Slam main draw matches as she advanced to the third round of the U.S. Open.
