Kazakhstani tennis player Anna Danilina won the second WTA title in her career. Paired with Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, our athlete became the winner of the prestigious Sydney Tennis Classic tournament, the Press Service of the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation reports.

In the deciding match, the Kazakh-Brazilian duet was stronger than Vivian Heisen (Germany) and Panna Udvardy (Hungary). The final duel lasted almost two hours and was decided in a super tie-break. Luck in the final game was on the side of Anna and Beatriz – 4:6, 7:5, 10:8.
