Shaughnessy Wins Bell Challenge

September 23, 2001

QUEBEC (AP) _ Meghann Shaughnessy won her first title of the year, defeating Iva Majoli of Croatia 6-1, 6-3 Sunday to capture the Bell Challenge.

The top-seeded American had 15 aces and overpowered an opponent who had trouble with her serve. Shaughnessy won in 55 minutes.

``Everything seemed to click today _ serving, returning, attacking,″ she said.

Majoli, seeded fourth, committed nine double faults. She lost to Shaughnessy for the second time this year following a defeat at Wimbledon.

``I was missing a lot of first serves,″ Majoli said. ``I was tired, my legs were not moving as they should have. I was expecting myself to play better.″
