American teenager Anisimova wins maiden WTA title
American teenager Amanda Anisimova won the first WTA title of her young career on Sunday with a comeback victory over Australian Astra Sharma in Bogota.
The 17-year-old, playing in only her second final, fought back from a set down to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.
The sixth seed was also a break down midway through the second set, but lost only two more games in the match to race to the finish line.
The 76th-ranked Anisimova will continue her rapid rise up the world rankings, having also impressed with a run to the Australian Open last 16 earlier this year.
