Updated: 

Teenager CiCi Bellis broke through for her maiden WTA Tour title after defeating top seed Zhang Shuai in the Hawaii Open final.

In the first meeting between the pair, fourth-seeded American and 17-year-old Bellis came out on top in straight sets on Sunday.

Bellis - contesting her first WTA decider - accounted for China's Zhang 6-4 6-2 at the 125K series event in Honolulu.

Bellis broke four times and fended off as many break points to reign supreme after a little over an hour on court.
