Sabalenka of Belarus wins WTA Mumbai Open

Mumbai – Number one seed Aryna Sabalenka cruised to a straight-sets victory in the final of the $125,000 WTA Mumbai Open on Sunday.

The 19-year-old Belarusian brushed aside Dalila Jakupovic 6-2, 6-3 in India's commercial capital to claim her first WTA singles title.

Sabalenka, ranked 96th in the world, took just over an hour to defeat the unseeded Slovenian, placed 252 in the rankings, on Mumbai's hard court surface.

It marked the biggest win of the teenager's career and comes a month after she lost to Maria Sharapova at the Tianjin Open in China in her first WTA final.
