Day nine: Putintseva lifts first grass-court title in Birmingham 

Yulia Putintseva banked her first grass-court title after defeating former two-time Wimbledon quarter-finalist Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1, 7-6(8).

An early double fault from the Australian gifted Putintseva an immediate break before tripling her lead to blitz the opening set in 27 minutes.

The world No.41 showcased no immediate signs of buckling under pressure, capturing six successive games to quickly reinstate her lead upon entering the second set.

However, the shackles were yet to come off for Tomljanovic who marched back from an early 2-0 deficit to bring the set back to parity. 

After winning her second break point of the match, Tomljanovic appeared to be on the home run to a herculean comeback, but three successive double faults allowed the Kazakhstani to level as a deciding tie-break loomed.

Tomjanovic battled back from a 4-1 deficit in the tie-break to earn set point, but the two-time Tour-level champion evaded any immediate threats of a decider, eventually winning three Championship points of her own to seal the victory in one hour and 29 minutes.

Doubles 

The world No.1 and No.3 in doubles, Elise Mertens and Su-Wei Hsieh, were crowned doubles champions after their convincing 6-1, 6-3 win over in-form duo Miyu Kato and Shuai Zhang.

The Belgium, Taiwanese partnership galloped through the opening set, showing strength behind their first and second serve to immediately find the double break.

Although Kato and Zhang did well to get a game on the board early doors in the second, Mertens and Hsieh remained critical to earn their second double break of the match as they sprinted towards the finish line. 

After four Championships points were won and lost by the reigning Australian Open champions, resulting from a return of break at the hand of their opponents, Mertens and Hsieh eventually sealed the fifth to lift the title after just short of an hour of play.
