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.

Huawei seems to have taken a leaf from the Samsung design book and curved the edge of the glass around the side of the handset. Additionally, the P30 Pro is teased as bringing even better low-light performance than the predecessor.

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.
