Majoli has more title joy
Monday 16 October 1995
Iva Majoli, the Croatian teenager, won her second tour title in eight days when she beat Argentina's Gabriela Sabatini in the final of the Filderstadt women's indoor tournament in Germany yesterday.
The 18-year-old, who upset the Australian Open champion, Mary Pierce, to win the European indoor tournament in Zurich last week, defeated third seed Sabatini 6-4, 7-6, taking the tie-break 7-4. Unfortunately Majoli has pulled out of the Brighton tournament, which begins tomorrow.
Clare Wood, the 27-year-old British player and the only home player in the 28-strong field, has been drawn to play Karina Habsudova of Slovakia in the first round.
Wood is currently ranked 224 in the world and only made the main draw by virtue of a wild card. Steffi Graf, six-times winner of the tournament, and Jana Novotna, winner for the past two years, are the top seeds and both have first-round byes.
