DALLAS: Wimbledon semi-finalist Sabine Lisicki of Germany captured the inaugural WTA Texas Open with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over French qualifier Aravane Rezai in the final. The hardcourt event was a tune-up for the US Open, which begins today in New York. Fifth-seed Lisicki, ranked 23rd in the world, rolled through the tournament without losing a set. Rezai could win only six points off the German’s serve in the 49-minute match, failing to force a single break point as Lisicki was crowned champion.
