Flipkens beats Hradecka for Quebec title

Belgian Kirsten Flipkens topped eighth- seeded Czech Lucie Hradecka in straight sets on Sunday to win the Bell Challenge tennis event.

Flipkens, who defeated both the top seed and the third seed en route to the final, finished off an impressive week with a 6-1, 7-5 triumph to capture her first career title.

Hradecka fell to 0-5 lifetime in WTA finals. She last reached a title match last year in Barcelona.

The 26-year-old Flipkens earned a first prize of $37,000.
