:bounce: :worship:

From her website:

ITF Lagos: T takes first singles title!
In the $25,000 of Lagos, Tammy won her first professional title against Bhambri!

Seeded 7, Tammy had a difficult week in which 3 of her 4 matches were only decided after playing a third set. But she was determined to give everything she could in her first final on the professional circuit.

Playing against Ankita Bhambri (WTA-507), T had the ranking advantage but the Indian women of 21 years old, good for already 8 ITF titles, had the experience on her side. Tammy handled the pressure of this final very well and won, just like in her previous matches, the first set. Her opponent gave much resistance but finally after 3 sets the Belgian Babe could raise her first trophy! Final score: 6-3 2-6 6-3.

This first professional title ever assures Tammy to enter the WTA top 400. The 25 points she earned this week will only be added in a week. Next week Tammy will play an other tournament in Lagos. Again she will be seeded and she will play her first round Monday or Tuesday.

But before that, Tammy still has to play the doubles final, the result will be known a little later today…
