Simona Halep hits outrageous tweener in Cincinnati final

Cincinnati Masters: Kiki Bertens upsets Simona Halep to win title

Kiki Bertens served a 109 miles per hour ace, flipped her racket away, fell to her knees and raised both arms.

She won just two points en route to seeing the score tied at 4-4 and, as her lead ebbed away, so too did her stamina.

Kiki Bertens held off a championship point to upset world number one Simona Halep and win the Cincinnati Masters. It left her as stunned as everyone else.

"I can not find words for this moment".

"Unbelievable moment, winning my first hard court title against the world number 1" Bertens said on Instagram after the match.

The depleted Halep is still entered as top seed in the upcoming WTA tournament in New Haven, which ends just two days prior to the start of the US Open in NY.

During the week in Cincinnati, Halep had one match suspended overnight by rain and wound up playing twice in one day to reach the semifinals.

"I've lost three finals here, but maybe I will able to win one at this tournament because I love to play here", said Halep, who fell to Serena Williams in the 2015 final of the hardcourt US Open tuneup and to Garbine Muguruza in the title match past year. "I didn't take my chance". Halep is seeking her first Cincinnati championship after losing in the finals a year ago and 2015.

Halep will be ranked No. 1 through the U.S. Open. She is the the first Dutch victor at a singles WTA/ATP hard court tournament since 2006. "I have lost three finals here but maybe I'll be able to win one in the future".

"But also I take the positive from these two weeks", she added. "It's a great confidence [boost]".
