Giorgi was devastating on serve - she never faced a break point in 11 service games, and she only lost a total of 19 points in those 11 service games. And when she saw her chances she took them - she converted on both break points she got, one to take the first set and the other to go up 5-3 second set.

At the end of the day the No.5-seeded Giorgi was just too tough in the important moments, closing the No.4-seeded Bencic out in an hour and 24 minutes on Den Bosch's beautiful center court, 7-5, 6-3.

"It's been a great week for me and I'm so happy to bring this trophy home," Giorgi said.

"It was my first time here and it went so well. Every match was great for me this week, and I felt like I was playing more and more consistently every match. And the crowd and the weather were great!

"Next I'm going to Eastbourne and hopefully I can get even more preparation in for Wimbledon."

The always-classy Bencic, a former junior champion at Wimbledon, was gracious in defeat.

"Camila played very well today - she was very tough in the important moments," the Swiss said. "I played well, but it wasn't good enough. She deserved to win. But I'm still very happy with my week.

"Now I'm going to Birmingham and looking forward to playing more matches on grass."

Having saved three match points in her quarterfinal win over Yaroslava Shvedova, Giorgi is the fourth player this year to save match points en route to winning a WTA title, after Andrea Petkovic (eight in Antwerp), Sara Errani (three in Rio de Janeiro) and Daniela Hantuchova (two in Pattaya City).

Bencic also saved three match points en route to the final, against Kristina Mladenovic in the quarters.

The doubles final was played Saturday and saw the American-German pairing of Asia Muhammad and Laura Siegemund upset No.3 seeds Jelena Jankovic and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 6-3, 7-5.

For both Muhammad and Siegemund, it was the first WTA title of any kind in their careers.
