's-Hertogenbosch F: Kontaveit d. Vikhlyantseva 62 63

Calm and concentrated Title #1

If they played in a non-final, it would have probably been a closer contest, Natasha was rather nervous

Vikhlyantseva was fortunate that the QF with Rodina and Konjuh was long and grueling.
Rodina has a good game on her day. But this was the weaker half

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Fully deserved. In her current form, Kontaveit is a threat to most players, especially on a fast surface.

Anett, it's her first WTA title Both girls were quite nervous in this final, but Anett was for sure superior player today.

Very well deserved. She has had very tough draws this year so it's great to see her finally get something in return. Easily playing top 20 tennis this year.

Re: 's-Hertogenbosch F: Kontaveit d. Vikhlyantseva 62 63

big congratulations for this 1st WTA title of (hopefully) many to come...

It's such a pleasure to see new faces using their chances. Hope they can disturb the established players furthermore in the near future. Little hint: stay away from Angie pls

Keep it up Anett !

Anett from 1-3 down in the second set just switched up the gears and there was nothing nervous Natalia could do.

Talent, come through!

Anett was calm and composed throughout the match. The first of many titles and for all of us Anett fans, it's great to see how far she has come and how much farther she can go still. What a fantastic moment

Re: 's-Hertogenbosch F: Kontaveit d. Vikhlyantseva 62 63

Enjoyed this final - so lovely to see the younger players step up. Congrats to both, and I'm sure we'll see them in more finals. Nice for Kontaveit and her dutch team to get her first WTA title in Netherlands!

Nervous but good speeches from both. Kontaveit was so overwhelmed she had to be prompted to thank her team, and Vikhlyatseva looked on the verge of tears so kept it short.
