Daria Kasatkina wins first ever WTA Granby trophy

This year marked the first time a WTA event was held in Granby, Canada and Daria Kasatkina won the trophy today by beating Daria Saville 6-4 6-4.

Kasatkina was the favourite before this match and she was the top seed at the event so this victory hardly comes as a surprise. It's the 2nd hard court title for the Russian this year after San Jose and it once again showed her tennis being worthy of the top 10.

The match itself was somewhat similar to how many of her matches go. There was a lot of back and forth because Saville never backs down, even when things go south. She didn't in this one either even when Kasatkina was able to take an early 2-0 lead.

Saville pulled it back to 2-1 but lost her serve to go down 2-5. She battled back to 5-4 but lost her serve once again to drop the opening set 4-6. Her serve gave her issues as she was broken a couple of times and that was simply too much. The 2nd set was quite similar as Kasatkina jumped out to another early lead.

She was up 4-2 but lost her serve to make it 4-3 but broke Saville again to make it 5-3. She served for the match but despite being up 30-15 lost the game to make it 5-4. Saville found herself in an identical situation to the first set and the same thing happened. Kasatkina finished off the match 6-4.
