Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova earned her sixth career WTA title at the Aegon Classic in Birmingham after defeating promising teen Donna Vekic of Croatia in straight sets.
“I’m always so happy coming back here year after year, and it feels great to finally get the title,” Hantuchova said.
“The first week on grass is always really demanding on the body, so I’m proud of how I made it through so many long matches throughout the week. And when I really needed to, I was tough mentally. Like in the match with Schiavone a few days ago, which was one of the most exciting matches of my career – when I was down, I stayed calm. I felt like everything came together this week.
“I’ve been playing here since ’99, I think – it was about time I got the title!”
