Baku final: Svitolina repeats

Baku final:

Elina Svitolina def. Bojana Jovanovski 6-1 7-6(2)

Elina Svitolina successfully defends her title to become the first teenager to have multiple titles after Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in 2011. With Jovanovski starting out nervously, Elina stamped her authority by playing her own game well. The first set was over in a flash. Bojana settled down in the 2nd and gave a good fight, but Elina was too steady in the end. It is difficult for a young player to win a title these days, and to repeat it's even more difficult. Hopefully this will give Elina the confidence and become a steady top 20 player that she's capable of.
