"I have been waiting for this one patiently and I'm very happy to come away with my 10th title. It's a good achievement," said Petrova, who has defeated Peer in their last six matchups.
"I knew Shahar was not able to hurt me with her serve. I knew if I was serving solid I would be very difficult to break. It was an important match. I'm sure it's going to give me a lot of confidence for other tournaments."
