No. 6 seed Dayana Yastremska outlasted No. 4 seed Caroline Garcia of France 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (3) to win the Internationaux de Strasbourg in France on Saturday.

Yastremska, 19, dropped a set for the first time in the tournament on the way to her third career singles title. The Ukrainian teen has yet to lose after reaching a final.

It was Yastremska's first meeting with Garcia, who was shooting for her seventh career singles title. Garcia won the title here in 2016 and is now 11-3 in the main draw at Strasbourg.

Top-seeded Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan rallied after losing the first set to beat Slovenia's Tamara Zidansek 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 to win the title in Germany.

It was the third WTA final for Putintseva and her first career title.

The victory also gives Putintseva a measure of revenge -- she lost her only previous meeting against Zidansek in three sets just three weeks ago in Morocco.
