Elena Vesnina has won the Aegon International women's singles title beating Jamie Hampton 6-2, 6-1 in the final at Devonshire Park on Saturday.

The Russian world No.36 was a comfortable straight sets winner, taking the title in an hour and 15 minutes on a windy Centre Court.

The champion said afterwards: "I'm pretty happy about my game today with these tough conditions. At the beginning of the match, I just needed to stay in it, just try to play every single point.

"It was not about good forehand or good backhand. It was just about fighting spirit. If you're able to handle this, if you're able to play under the pressure with this kind of wind, you will do well. I kept believing in myself. I knew that I'm going to win this title. I knew that it was going to happen.

"It's a pleasure to play here [in Eastbourne]. People really understand tennis, and they understand the rules. They help players to feel comfortable on the court."
