Lisicki wins Birmingham title

Unseeded Sabine Lisicki defeated 4th seed Daniela Hantuchova 6-3, 6-2 today to win the 2011 AEGON Classic championship. The match was played this morning and not yesterday, as scheduled, because of constant rain. This is Lisicki's second WTA title. She won Charleston in 2009, but then was hampered by various illnesses and injuruies. The German player has only recently begun to look like the play she was in 2009, when she made a run to the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

The doubles title was won by 2nds seeds Olga Govortsova and Alla Kudryavtseva, who defeated 3rd seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci 1-6, 6-1, 10-5.
