Teenager Olga Danilovic wins in Moscow to make Open Era history
17-year-old Olga Danilovic has won the Moscow River cup, overcoming fellow-teenager Anastasia Potapova in the final.
The Serbian claimed a 7-5 6-7 6-4 win to collect her maiden WTA Tour title, and also become the first ‘lucky loser’ in the Open Era to win a tournament they were actually eliminated from in qualifying.
“Yesterday, I said, ‘This is the final, and this is my life, this is the moment that I live for,’” Danilovic said afterwards.
“Being able to win, it’s even a better feeling, and I’m so happy for it.”
Congratulations to @danilovic_olga! 🎉

“[She is] an amazing player,” Danilovic said of Potapova.
“We had such an amazing final, and I think it was such big quality of the match, through all the match.
“We didn’t go up and down so much, we both had so many winners, we both had so many amazing points.
“She’s just a complete, great player.”
