Kiki Bertens on the run during Sunday’s Cincy final.
Halep in full flight in what was her 10th match in 11 days.
A nice moment between Bertens and her coach, Raemon Sluiter.
Halep was superb in the first set, landing a high percentage of first serves and dictating with her forehand.
Love this shot!
Flying tennis racquets! There were frustrating moments for both players.
After failing to convert on a Championship point in the second set tiebreak, Halep clearly tired in the third set. It was a tough day for Simona but there were still some smiles 🙂. An exceptional effort over these past two weeks.
The winning moment! Bertens win her biggest title in Cincy with a 2-6 7-6(6) 6-2 victory.
A nice moment between Bertens and Halep at the net.
Happy tears for Kiki!
Bertens receives her trophy 🏆.
A closing shot from the Cincy trophy ceremony. That’s a wrap on Cincy 2018! Thanks so much to Omar for sharing all his photos! 🙂
