Tamira Paszek defeated
on 23rd June Angelique Kerber
 to
clinch Championship of the
AEGON
International (Women’s)
in London.

Earlier, unseeded Tamira
Paszek of Austria rallied to beat
defending champion Marion Bartoli 4-6,
7-5, 6-4 and reach the final at Eastbourne on Friday. Paszek was a
quarterfinalist at Wimbledon last
year but had won just two matches this season, losing 11 times in the first
round. She played fifth-seeded Angelique Kerber
 in Saturday’s
final.

 

Tamira Paszek won her first
title since 2006, defeating 
Bethanie
Mattek-Sands
 7-6, 2-6, 7-5
in Quebec City to win the event after coming through qualifying. “It’s
overwhelming. I can’t express what I’m feeling,” said Paszek, who has
suffered injuries and turbulent times over the past couple of years. “I
want to thank my family and friends for supporting me during some tough times
last year.” Mattek was up a break and held two set points in the first
set, and also led by a break in the third set.

 

Right-handed Tamira
Paszek
 was born in Durbin, Austria on December
6, 1990 (21 years
old)
. She is a
professional tennis player from
Austria. As of 8 June 2012, she is the no.1 ranked tennis player from Austria
in the 
WTA ranking, at No. 52.

Her career is impressive. Briefly, she attended Gymnasium
Dornbirn-Schoren
 and Bundesoberstufenrealgymnasium
Schoren. As a junior, Paszek was a finalist in
the 2005 Girls’ Singles
Championship at Wimbledon and at the US Open – Girls’ Singles in 2006. In September 2005 she won her
first title at an ITF tournament in Sofia.
In October of the same year she received a wild card to appear at her first WTA
tournament in Linz; she defeated Elena Vesnina in the first round and lost to Ana Ivanović after a tough first set. In 2006 she
passed qualifications in Istanbul,
where she lost in the second round to Catalina Castaño; and in Portorož in the Banka Koper Slovenia Open, where she
won her first WTA title by defeating number 6 seed Maria Elena Camerin from Italy 7–5 6–1. This was a
career-first Tour singles title in only her third Tour main draw. That title
made her the youngest Tour singles titlist in 2006 and the seventh-youngest
all-time. She also participated at the 
Fed Cup for Austria in 2007. She won her first two matches in the group stage
against Australia. She debuted on the 2007 US Open, reaching the fourth
round, beating on the way #24 and #11 seed, 
Francesca
Schiavone and Patty
Schnyder. Paszek decided against defending her
title in the Banka
Koper Slovenia Open in Portorož, Slovenia, in favor of the larger China Open tournament in Beijing.
At Paszek’s first grass tournament of her career, she reached the third round
in Birmingham.  At
the 
2007 Wimbledon Championships she reached the fourth round after beating two seeded
players, No.17 seed
Tatiana Golovin and No.12 seed Elena
Dementieva.

 

Paszek was introduced to tennis by her mother, Françoise
Paszek, at age four-and-a-half.
 Her
mother is Chilean born, and her
father is Ariff Mohamed, who is 
Tanzanian-born, Kenya-raised and lived in Canada. Both her paternal grandparents are
from India.
