Fourth-seeded Madison Keys delivered 22 winners while roaring past third-seeded Danielle Collins 6-1, 6-2 on Saturday to win the Internationaux de Strasbourg championship in an All-American final in France.

Keys controlled the match from the outset while notching her eighth career title. She won 67.9 percent of her first-serve points during the 72-minute match compared to just 48.7 percent for Collins.

It was just the third loss in the past 25 matches for Collins, who won titles at Miami and Charleston earlier this season. Despite the setback, Collins will enter the top 10 when the updated WTA rankings are released on Monday.

“I feel amazing,” Keys said afterward. “I went into today knowing that I was going to have to play some really good tennis in order to beat Danielle. She’s been playing absolutely incredible the last couple of months, and she’s always a really tough opponent.”

Keys improved to 2-1 all-time against Collins.

American Peyton Stearns recorded her first career title by cruising to a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Egypt’s Mayar Sherif in Rabat, Morocco.

Stearns saved all four of Sherif’s break-point opportunities and converted all four of her own in the 72-minute victory.

Sherif, who was looking for her second career title, won just 51.6 percent of her first-serve points.
