Anett Kontaveit Wins The 2017 Ricoh Open Defeating Natalia Vikhlyantseva

18/6/2017 


In the women's singles final, unseeded Estonian Anett Kontaveit overpowered Natalia Vikhlyantseva 6-2, 6-3.

Kontaveit built momentum after saving two break points in the third game of the match and eased through the first set.

She fell 3-1 down in the second but turned the tide by winning 10 successive points and did not look back. Anett Kontaveit has been one of the WTA Tour’s breakout performers this year, and that improved level of play has guided the young Estonian to her first career singles title.

She’s a title winner on the grass, a perfect start with Wimbledon on the horizon. And having started the year at 121 in the world, she’ll be at a career-high 36 in Monday’s rankings.
