Katie Boulter beats Jodie Burrage to win Progress Tour title in Roehampton

Britain's Katie Boulter

Katie Boulter rallied to beat Jodie Burrage and claim the Progress Tour title in Roehampton on Saturday.

Burrage dominated the opening set after jumping out to a 3-0 lead, but Boulter finished the stronger as she took a 3-6 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 victory.

Boulter had looked unsteady in the early going, struggling in blustery conditions, as she made a number of errors which were punished by Burrage.

And when Boulter was broken at the end of the second set, Burrage had a chance to serve for the title.

Errors then crept into her own game, and Boulter was able to force a tie-break before taking it into a third set that she dominated.
