“It feels amazing, I must say,” Goerges said after winning her fifth WTA title.”It’s not just about winning here, but the consistency I’ve had for the last few weeks and months. That makes me prouder, and I’m just enjoying every moment of it.”

Tentatively up to a career-high ranking of No.12, the German had been due to play as No.7 seed at the Apia International Sydney but has withdrawn due to a right knee injury. She will be replaced in the main draw by her compatriot and lucky loser Carina Witthoeft.
