World no. 127 Elise Mertens stuns everyone in Hobart following her maiden title after she didn’t drop a set coming straight from the qualifications.

The Belgian made a killing even if she played eight matches in 9 days. In the final, Elise was too much for the talented Monica Niculescu to leave just four games to the Romanian (6-3 6-1).

Now ranked world no. 127, Mertens will gain at least 40 places in the rankings to finally break in the top100. If she keeps on playing like this week, more glory is on the horizon for her.
