Halep clinches title

Simona Halep claimed the biggest title of her career on Sunday, lifting the Indian Wells WTA trophy with a 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory over former champion Jelena Jankovic. The hard-fought triumph over the former world number one from Serbia made Romania’s 23-year-old Halep the first player to win three WTA titles this year. Halep, ranked third in the world, won four of the final five games in the third set to earn the marathon victory in two hours, 37 minutes.
