Elina Svitolina will go to the US Open full of confidence after taking her 16th career WTA title by beating Alize Cornet at the Chicago Open.
The Ukrainian top seed fought in a shadow two hours to a 7-5 6-4 win.
French Cornet, who was placed ninth, needed a medical break after losing a tight first set and reappearing with a strap on her thigh.
Obviously handicapped by a groin injury, she fought happily and after the first three games managed to get the second set back 5-4 behind.
At the Tennis in the Land tournament in Cleveland, the second seeded defeated Anett Kontaveit Irina-Camelia Begu in the final 7: 6 (7: 5) 6: 4.
The last Grand Slam of the year, the US Open, begins on Monday in New York.
