For Jabeur it was the third tournament victory after the successes in Birmingham 2021 on grass and at the clay tournament in Madrid in May. In the world rankings, she climbs to third place on Monday – and thus higher than ever before.
Bencic, on the other hand, missed her second title of the year after Charleston. Last summer she celebrated Olympic gold in Tokyo and thus the greatest success of her career.
In the final in Berlin, Bencic showed the strains of the tournament, at the end of the first set she slipped and had to be treated. At first she kept playing, but when the score was 1:2 in the second round it was over.

From the first match against Jule Niemeier, Bencic needed three sets in each round. In the semi-finals on Saturday, she only won after 3:07 hours against the Greek Maria Sakkari 6: 7 (6: 8), 6: 4, 6: 4. Jabeur only had to go the full distance in the quarterfinals against Aljaksandra Sasnowitsch (Belarus), who had previously beaten Andrea Petkovic.
