China's Wang Yafan defeats Sofia Kenin to capture WTA Acapulco title

China's Wang Yafan rallied to capture her first WTA title on Saturday, defeating American Sofia Kenin 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 Saturday to win the Mexico Open women's crown.

Nonetheless, Wang would not be denied her breakthrough moment, as she held to love before breaking Kenin a final time, and after two hours and 11 minutes, it was the her 17th victor of the match - again off the forehand - that sealed her first title. Canadian 18-year-old Andreescu led 3-0 to start the first set but she lost five successive games as Kenin hit the front.

China's Yafan Wang holds her trophy and wears a Mexican sombrero after winning her Mexican Tennis Open final match against Sofia Kenin of the US, in Acapulco, Mexico, Saturday, March 2, 2019.

'I agree 100%' to keep U.S. troops in Syria
A copy of the letter obtained by NBC News showed that Trump highlighted a paragraph about the objectives of continued US presence in Syria.

Kenin had registered her own breakthrough Tour victory at the Hobart International in January, but she will have to wait to add to her collection of titles after failing to consolidate a dominant performance in the first set.

In the men's final, second-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany faced Australia's Nick Kyrgios.

The 23-year-old Kyrgios, ranked 72nd in the world, beat second-ranked Rafael Nadal in the second round, then knocked off Stan Wawrinka and John Isner to reach the final.
