Carla Suarez Navarro won the first WTA title of her career as she defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4 3-6 6-4 in Oeiras.

Despite being the top seed and one of the most consistent players on the WTA Tour, Navarro had never previously won a WTA title – losing in her previous five finals – including at this venue last year.

Despite winning the first set 6-3 against experienced Russian Kuznetsova, Navarro looked set for more disappointment when she fell 6-3 in the second and then found herself 4-1 down in the third.

However, she then managed to rally and win five games in a row to take the victory.
