British number seven Tara Moore claimed the fourth ITF singles title of her career after securing victory at the Aegon Pro-Series event in Glasgow.
The Potters Bar player upset top seed and promising 18-year-old Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium in the last four to set up a final against French third seed Myrtille Georges.
Playing with new-found confidence, she produced a good display to claim a 6-1, 6-4 straight sets victory.
Moore, who is now coached by Jeremy Bates, was pleased with her performance at the event.
She said: “It’s a nice way to start the year. I beat two very difficult opponents and felt very comfortable on court this week and that will only do me good to get matches here in Glasgow as well as in Preston next week before I go to California.
“I am working with Jeremy Bates now and the on court sessions have been intense but I like it and am seeing the benefits. 2013 is a big year for me and I have to make a step up and winning this week will only help.”
Not content with just one title, Moore went on to win the doubles competition alongside Melanie South to cap off a superb first week of competitive tennis for the year.
