Liudmila Samsonova wins title in the Netherlands

Liudmila Samsonova

Liudmila Samsonova of Russia won her first title of 2024 on a long Sunday that required her to win two three-set matches to lift the trophy at the Libema Open in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.

In the final, the second-seeded Samsonova came from behind to beat Canada’s Bianca Andreescu 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. It was the fifth WTA Tour title for Samsonova — her second on grass courts and first since Berlin in 2021.

While Andreescu was able to complete her semifinal win over Dalma Galfi of Hungary on Saturday, Samsonova’s match against third-seeded Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova was suspended due to rain, tied at a set each.

Samsonova needed just 32 minutes Sunday to win the final set and take the 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-1 win before facing Andreescu in the final.

While Andreescu jumped out to the early lead in the first set, Samsonova roared back in the second by taking a 3-0 lead. In the deciding set, Andreescu required a medical timeout to have tape applied to her upper left leg.

Samsonova had 36 winners in the match compared to 18 for Andreescu.
