Linz, Austria (Sports Network) - Belarusian Victoria Azarenka and Germany's

Kirsten Flipkens, 1-6, 6-2, 6-3.
Goerges, who reached the final in Dubai in February, is aiming for her third
career title after posting wins in Stuttgart last year and Bad Gastein in
Azarenka is 3-1 lifetime against Goerges.
The newest Linz champion will earn $37,000.
