BAKU, Azerbaijan -- Elina Svitolina won the Baku Cup title by beating Shahar Peer of Israel 6-4, 6-4 in the final on Sunday.

The 18-year-old Ukrainian, the 2010 French Open junior champion, landed four aces and broke Peer decisively in each set to claim her second career title. She won her first last November in Pune, India.

The 149-ranked Peer, whose ranking has fallen from a career-best No. 11, was bidding for a sixth career title in her first final appearance since losing in Washington in July 2011.
