PARIS, France - She faced a lot of resistance but Angelique Kerber finally overcame Marion Bartoli in a two-hour, 39-minute final at the Open GDF SUEZ on Sunday, emerging with her first WTA title and becoming Germany's first champion there since a certain 22-time Grand Slam champion won it in 1995.

Kerber, who was elevated to the No.9 seed following fellow German Sabine Lisicki's late withdrawal from the tournament due to illness, toughed out some tricky early rounds over Lucie Safarova and Monica Niculescu then had a career breakthrough in the quarterfinals, upsetting No.1 seed Maria Sharapova in straight sets, 64 64 - it was the first Top 10 win of her career.

"I knew before the match I had nothing to lose. It's amazing," a jubilant Kerber said afterwards. "I played my first match against Maria in Australia and I think I was a little bit shocked to play her, because she's such a great player."

Sharapova was equally complimentary. "Angelique is someone who has been playing really good tennis the last six months, and had a great result at the US Open. She's really starting to break through. And being a lefty gives her a bit of an edge - she has a great game for it, but she's also someone who's very aggressive, stays low, is very strong and runs well. She has many pluses."
