Mertens wins title in Lugano

Belgium's Elise Mertens, the world number 20, won the third WTA tour title of her career on Sunday by beating Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, in the Lugano final in Switzerland.

Mertens, the second seed, had enough energy after coming through two three-set matches on Saturday just to make it to the final.

It is her second title of the season after she won in Hobart in January in the build-up to the Australian Open.
