Vandeweghe regains title in Rosmalen


Coco Vandeweghe regained her Rosmalen Grass Court Championships title by beating Kristina Mladenovic in straight sets on Sunday.

Vandeweghe claimed her maiden WTA title on the grass in the Netherlands two years ago and the American was crowned champion once again courtesy of a 7-5 7-5 victory.

The sixth seed hammered down seven aces and won an impressive 81 per cent of points on first serve to secure only her second WTA singles title at the same tournament where she won her first.

World number 43 Vandeweghe broke three times and failed to hold just the once to deny third seed Mladenovic a first singles title.

Vandeweghe saved two break points in the second game of the match and took the first break to lead 6-5 before serving out the set.

She was up against it in the second set when Mladenovic went a break up at 5-3, but came storming back to win four games in a row and take the title once again.
