Dayana Yastremska won the third WTA Tour title of her career as she outlasted Caroline Garcia in a Strasbourg battle that lasted nearly three hours.
The 19-year-old, who won the Thailand Open at the end of January and the Hong Kong Open at the backend of 2018, tasted success with a 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) win in two hours and 56 minutes.

Both players struggled on their serve with seven breaks in the first set, with Yastremska edging it four to three, but Garcia hit back in the second set as she saved two match points in game nine and then claimed consecutive breaks to take it to a third set.
After trading some early breaks, it went to the tie-breaker and the Ukrainian made no mistake this time as she secured a second title in 2019.
