Heather Watson claimed her first senior title by winning the final of the AEGON Pro Series tournament in Frinton.

The 17-year-old, from Guernsey, beat fellow Brit Anna Fitzpatrick 4-6 6-4 6-2 in a three-set thriller.

Watson bounced back from losing the first set by racing into a 4-1 lead in the second.

But she then had to hold her nerve to level the match after being pegged back to 4-4, before running away with the deciding third set to claim the title.

Watson, who came through qualifying to make the main draw, beat second seed Anna Smith 6-2 6-1 in the semi-finals, after losing to her in the last four of the Felixstowe Pro Series tournament last week.
