Lucie Safarova defeated Victoria Azarenka on Saturday in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the Qatar Open.

President of the Qatar Tennis Federation handed the golden falcon trophy to the winner after the match. Safarova broke Azarenka in the very first game and continued to dominate the match from then on. Even Safrova's serve was broken in the sixth game, the eventual winner remained strong and broke Azarenka's serve in the ninth game and went on to win the first set.

The second set was no different and Safarova won the game easily. The win also meant Safrova prevented Azarenka from completing a hattrick of Doha Open titles.
