Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur produced a dominant display to beat Diana Shnaider 6-2 6-1 in the Ningbo Open final.
Jabeur, who is seventh in the women’s rankings, secured victory in 78 minutes in China for her fifth WTA Tour title.
The 29-year-old, who took a late wildcard to enter the tournament, hit 18 winners in the victory over 85th-ranked Shnaider, 19.
“These are little steps to winning a Grand Slam final,” said Jabeur, who has yet to win a major.
