wtatennis.com: June 14 2015 ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands - Camila Giorgi pounced at just the right times to beat fellow WTA Rising Star Belinda Bencic and win the first WTA title of her career at the Topshelf Open.

 

Giorgi was devastating on serve - she never faced a break point in 11 service games, and she only lost a total of 19 points in those 11 service games. And when she saw her chances she took them - she converted on both break points she got, one to take the first set and the other to go up 5-3 second set.

 

At the end of the day the No.5-seeded Giorgi was just too tough in the important moments, closing the No.4-seeded Bencic out in an hour and 24 minutes on Den Bosch's beautiful center court, 7-5, 6-3.

 

The always-classy Bencic, a former junior champion at Wimbledon, was gracious in defeat. "Camila played very well today - she was very tough in the important moments," the Swiss said. "I played well, but it wasn't good enough. She deserved to win. But I'm still very happy with my week. Now I'm going to Birmingham and looking forward to playing more matches on grass."

 

Having saved three match points in her quarterfinal win over Yaroslava Shvedova, Giorgi is the fourth player this year to save match points en route to winning a WTA title, after Andrea Petkovic (eight in Antwerp), Sara Errani (three in Rio de Janeiro) and Daniela Hantuchova (two in Pattaya City). Bencic also saved three match points en route to the final, against Kristina Mladenovic in the quarters.
