Kiki Bertens won her 2nd title of the year and the 6th of her career. Her victory in Cincinnati (Premier 5) was her biggest title of her career not just in points and money but because of who she defeated: Vandeweghe (2 titles), Wozniacki (29 titles), Kontaviet (1 title), Svitolina (12 titles), Kvitova (25 titles) and Halep (18 titles). Winning Cincinnati increased Kiki’s earnings to $2.3M this year and $5.6M for her career. Her match record this year is 33-16 and 358-218 for her career.


Here’s what Kiki said about her results this year during an interview with WTA Insider:

WTA Insider: Obviously the clay season was great. You made the biggest final of your career in Madrid, you won Charleston. Then on grass the Wimbledon quarterfinal, which was amazing. Now the last couple of weeks, with all the wins and then now culminating in this title the biggest one of your career, what has been the standout moment for you?

Bertens: “I think it's just a little bit of everything. That I can continue to play like this, that it's not like only one moment that I'm really peaking. Normally it's only the clay court season. Now there's also the grass and now the hardcourts. It's such a great feeling that you don't have to be peaking at only one moment a year. Now it's everywhere. I think that's the thing I'm most proud of, that all the work is paying off”.


NEXT WEEK ON THE WTA TOUR: New Haven, CT (470). The top 2 seeds are Simona Halep and Caroline Garcia.
