Arantxa Rus Wins Maiden WTA Title

Dutch veteran Arantxa Rus captured her maiden WTA title at the age of 32 in Hamburg on Saturday, 29 July 2023.

Rus won through 6-0, 7-6 (7/3) in 1hr 45min to deny wild card Noma Akugue a dream victory in her first WTA main draw event.

“I’m very proud of myself that after so many years, I made my first title,” said Rus, who turned pro back in 2008.

“The day was very long because I was very nervous, but I’m happy that I could play good tennis and it was a great final from both of us.”
