OEIRAS, Portugal – Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium won her first WTA Tour title by defeating Ekaterina Makarova 7-5, 6-2 Saturday in the final of the Estoril Open.

In the men’s semifinals, seventh-seeded Albert Montanes defeated unseeded Paul Capdeville 6-3, 6-4 in a match interrupted by rain.

The match between James Blake and second-seeded Nikolay Davydenko was suspended because of darkness. Davydenko won the first set 7-6 (3) but trailed 4-2 in the second.

The match will be resumed on Sunday, with the winner to face Montanes later in the day.

The 19-year-old Wickmayer, ranked 88th, missed three set points in the 10th game but broke Makarova’s serve two games later to win the first set. Wickmayer broke Makarova’s serve in the fourth game of the second set to take a 3-1 lead.

Makarova is still aiming for her first tour singles title. She was runner-up at the Grand Prix SAR in Morocco last month.
