Olga Danilovic first player born in 2000s to win a WTA title

The 17 year old Serb is the youngest winner of a WTA title since 2015.

She is also the first ‘lucky loser’ to win a WTA title, after being granted a place in the main draw despite losing the final round of qualifying.

Having squandered an opportunity to close out the match in the second set, Danilovic was forced to recover from a break down in the decider as she became the first lucky loser to win a WTA title on Sunday.

World No.187 Danilovic is also the youngest title winner at tour level since Ana Konjuh’s triumph at Nottingham in 2015.

The left-handed Danilovic, who was granted a place in the main draw despite losing the final round of qualifying, demonstrated an impressive commitment to all-out aggression in her first career final, with 49 winners and 46 unforced errors.
