Li is first name on Tenerife trophy

American Ann Li won her first WTA title with a straight-sets victory over Colombia’s Camila Osorio in the inaugural Tenerife Ladies Open.

Li won 6-1, 6-4 in an hour and 10 minutes to deny her 19-year-old opponent a second title of the year.

The 21-year-old lost her serve in the opening game of the match before reeling off the next six games and secured what proved to be the decisive break at 2-2 in the second.

Li had 15 winners to Osorio’s 12 in the encounter, taking charge with powerful groundstrokes whenever she could hit through the speed and deft dropshots of Osorio.

Osorio, who won her first career title on home soil in Bogota this spring, came undone with unforced errors, firing 15 more miscues than Li’s total. Li took control after drawing those errors, converting five of her ten break points to collect the breezy victory.
