Taylor Townsend doubles up on WTA titles again

351

Last week Taylor Townsend won her first two Pro Circuit titles at the $50,000 tournament in Charlottesville. This week, the 18-year-old left-hander again swept the singles and doubles in a $50,000 tournament, this one in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida, and added an even great prize–the USTA’s French Open wild card.

Townsend, who was an unseeded special exempt entry, beat No 7 seed Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan 6-1, 6-1.  Taylor and Asia Muhammad, who also took the doubles title in Charlottesville last week, won again this week, beating Jan Abaza and Sanaz Marand in the final 6-2, 6-1.
