Day eight: Kasatkina makes it second time lucky after defeating Fernandez in final

Daria Kasatkina has made it second time lucky in Eastbourne after defeating Leylah Fernandez 6-3, 6-4 in the women's singles final.

Kasatkina put last year's defeat to Madison Keys in the final behind her as she rallied to a straight sets victory over world No.30 Fernandez at Devonshire Park, marking the seventh WTA title of her career and first on the grass.

Heading into the final, it was the world No.14 who had a 2-0 lead in the head-to-head but today signified their first meeting on the grass.

The 27-year-old made a fast start, breaking Fernandez on her opening service game before saving three break points at 4-2 in an 11-deuce game to consolidate the break. The Russian kept her foot on the gas pedal as she broke the former US Open runner-up to eventually seal a double break and take the opening set.

After taking a 3-0 lead in the second, Kasatkina looked to be sprinting to the finish line. However, the Canadian dug deep to pull the momentum back in her favour to claim a 4-3 lead before Kasatkina reeled off three games on the bounce to eventually close out her first grass court title.

Doubles

Meanwhile, the women's doubles final saw a thrilling battle unfold between Jelena Ostapenko and Lyudmyla Kichenok and Erin Routliffe and Gabriela Dabrowski, with the former prevailing 5-7, 7-6(2), 10-8 to earn their fourth doubles title  together.

The Latvian, Ukrainian duo overturned a one set deficit to force a second set tie-break where they broke their opponents twice to level the tie.

After nine breaks of serve in the match-deciding tiebreak it was Ostapenko and Kichenok who swallowed their nerves as the Latvian served out the win on at the first time of asking.

Men's draw: Fritz etches name into the history books by clinching third crown

Taylor Fritz has made history in Eastbourne after becoming the first three-time champion at the tournament following his 6-4, 6-3 win over Max Purcell.

The world No.14 needed just one hour and nine minutes to etch his name in the history books and seal the eighth ATP title of his career.

Fritz has been a stalwart behind his serve all week and today was no different. Landing 70% of first serves in and winning 89% of points behind, the American didn't face a single break point across the match in what was a grass court masterclass at Devonshire Park.

After breaking the Australian during the final service game of the opening set, Fritz carried the momentum on his back into the second as he sprinted to a 4-2 lead.

Facing little threat on his service games, the American raced ahead to a 40-0 lead when serving out the match, however, Purcell looked to make one last charge as he forced the scoreboard to deuce before finally getting over the line on his third match point.
