New Delhi: Joshna Chinappa tamed giant-killer Gaby Schmohl of Switzerland in straight sets to win the $9,200 German Ladies Open and earn her fourth WISPA Tour title at Saarbrucken-Gudingen.

Second seed Chinappa outplayed Schmohl 11-6, 11-7, 11-6 in a 22-minute final on May 23.

Chinappa survived some anxious moments during the summit clash against her Swiss opponent, who ousted top seed Line Hansen of Denmark in the semifinal.

In the quarterfinal, Chinappa had routed eighth seed Carrie Ramsey of England 11-3, 11-8, 11-3 and then got the better of French qualifier Melissa Alves 11-5, 11-5, 11-6 in the final-four stage.
