Maddy Inglis is celebrating her fourth ITF singles title after taking out the Burnie International in a typically fighting performance on Sunday.
Inglis lost the first set in a hard-fought final against American Sachia Vickery before eventually prevailing 2-6 6-3 7-5 in a contest that lasted more than two and a half hours.
Inglis claimed her first three titles in a breakout 2019, but the Burnie victory is the West Australian’s first at $60,000 level.
The 22-year-old was delighted with the result as she chases a place inside the world’s top 100.
“I feel so happy and relieved that I got the win, it was so close in the end and she was playing some really good tennis,” Inglis told the Advocate.
“I came into this week not thinking about winning the tournament, maybe that was a bad thing, but I had my doubles partner in the first round and after that everything was a bonus.
“She got to everything, it was hard to finish a match off when you are nervous and trying to win your first 60k.
“That is why I should take a lot of confidence out of it.”
