STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Qualifier Aleksandra Wozniak became the first Canadian to win a WTA Tour singles title in 20 years, taking an advantage of an injury to Marion Bartoli to win the Bank of the West Classic 7-5, 6-3 on Sunday.

Wozniak, 20, needed to win eight matches — including three qualifiers — in nine days to become the first Canadian since Jill Hetherington at Wellington in February 1988 to win a women's singles title. Wozniak was only 5 months old at the time.

Only three other Canadian women have won tour titles: Patricia Hy-Boulais, Taipei, 1986; Helen Kelesi, Tokyo, 1986; and Carling Bassett-Seguso, Strasbourg, 1987.
