  • Kerber has endured a difficult 2019

Bencic broke the American then served for it at 5-4 in the second when the American saved three match points, one of which came on a double fault, one of 13 served by the Swiss.

"I'm playing really well, fighting for every point and taking as much advantage as I can", Kenin added.

Anastasija Sevastova's bid to reach a fourth consecutive Mallorca Open final fell short as Sofia Kenin prevailed over three sets in the last four. Kenin is 1-1 in career final appearances and this will be her first ever final appearance on grass.

The German eased through the opener thanks to a pair of breaks and, after both women dropped serve in successive games towards the end of the second, Bencic surged clear in the tie-break, winning five straight points from 2-2.

Who was against the move? The resolution was supported by 118 members, 62 people voted against it, and 10 people abstained. A decision on members' objections is expected on Wednesday, the day the council chooses its next secretary general.

But Bencic took control of the breaker from there, and garnered four set points after a forehand victor which just brushed the netcord brought her to 6-2. The Swiss player converted the first with bruising backhands, and she had a chance to serve for the match.

The win was just the second title in the 20-year-old's career, a promising sign ahead of Wimbledon. Bencic has split her last six final appearances and is 1-1 in career final appearances on grass.

This is sure to be a fun final between two feisty players who are aggressive with the return and look to finish points on their terms.

"This is my special tournament and I'm going to keep coming back here for many more years to come", a delighted Kenin said afterwards. She was playing great tennis and the balls were keeping very low.
