Latvia's number 2 woman's tennis star, Anastasija Sevastova, recorded the third tournament win of her career July 22 with a straight-sets 7-6, 6-2 victory over Petra Martic of Croatia at WTA ranking tournament the Bucharest Open.

 "I need some time to enjoy it. It’s always like this. It comes pretty fast and you leave to the next tournament. But I am very happy and excited," Sevastova said after the match.

The win takes her back into the world top 20 ranked players and puts right a disappointing loss in the 2016 final of the same tournament.

Speaking to the crowd after her victory, Sevastova thanked her opponent and the crowd and said how much she enjoyed playing in the tournament.
