Stuttgart, Germany - Germany's Julia Goerges delighted the home crowd Sunday, upsetting top-ranked Dane Caroline Wozniacki in the final of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

The 22-year-old Goerges posted a 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 victory to become the first German to win this tournament since Anke Huber in 1994.

Goerges reached two finals last year, beating Timea Bacsinszky last July in Bad Gastein before losing to Roberta Vinci in October in Luxembourg. Her best previous finish this year was a semifinal loss to Greta Arn at the Australian Open tuneup in Auckland.

Wozniacki, meanwhile, was aiming for her fourth title of the year.

Goerges had lost both previous matches against the world's top-ranked player.
