Eastbourne - Belinda Bencic defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 on Saturday to win the first title of her career with success at the Eastbourne International.
The trophy breakthrough for the 18-year-old Swiss denied the ninth-seeded Pole and 2012 Wimbledon finalist a second title at Devonshire Park on the English south coast in a contest which lasted over two hours.
Bencic was playing in the third final of her career. She was beaten this month in a grass-court final in the Netherlands by Italian Camila Giorgi.
Bencic got away to an untouchable treble break in the third set for 5-0 as she finished the job against the 2008 Eastbourne champion with a forehand winner to the corner.
