Teenager Dodin wins maiden title in Quebec


Teenager Oceane Dodin claimed her maiden WTA title by beating Lauren Davis in her first final at the Coupe Banque Nationale on Sunday.

Dodin had never won a WTA match before this week and the 19-year-old rounded off a dream tournament in Quebec City by seeing off American qualifier Davis 6-4 6-3.

Davis, playing only her second WTA final, was broken six times by the youngster from France to miss out on a first singles title after also losing a Citi Open showdown in July.

It had all started so well for Davis, who raced into a 2-0 lead but lost four games in a row in a first set that swung one way and then the other before the world number 132 broke for a third time to go a set up.

Dodin was in control at 3-0 in the second, but made hard work of sealing a victory, which came when she won her third match point to put the icing on the cake at the end of a week in which she has exceeded expectations.
