Anett Kontaveit claimed the Ricoh Open title in the ladies’ tournament. The world’s number 49 was clearly too strong for Natalia Vikhlyantseva (WTA-74)  and beat her in straight sets, to win 6-2 6-3 .

​T​he pupil of Dutch coach Glen Schaap dictated from the baseline on the very hot centre court​, concluding the match in one hour and 15 minutes​. With 12 winners and 19 ​unforced errors, the balance sheet of the 21-year-old Estonian was better than her one year younger Russian opponent. Vikhlyantseva produced no less than 33 ​unforced errors and had not ​nearly ​enough winners.
Kontaveit’s first WTA title ​is worth 34,000 euros and 280 important points for the world ranking.
