March 31, (THEWILL) – American tennis star Danielle Collins etched her name in the history books by capturing the prestigious Miami Open title on Saturday. In a gripping final encounter, Collins rallied past fourth seed Elena Rybakina 7-5 6-3, marking her maiden WTA 1000 triumph on home soil.

Collins’ relentless determination and pinpoint serving proved instrumental in her victory. She won a staggering 75% of her first-serve points and converted three of seven break-point opportunities. The final set witnessed a scintillating display that left the capacity crowd, including former Miami champion Andre Agassi, spellbound.

In her post-match interview with Sky Sports, the elated 30-year-old Collins said: “This is my first WTA 1000, and I’ve worked incredibly hard for it. It has taken me a bit longer than many other players, but today has been surreal, playing in front of so many people and having the whole stadium’s support. It’s truly special.”

Collins’ triumph at the Miami Open is particularly poignant, as she announced her impending retirement from professional tennis in January. Her runner-up finish at the 2022 Australian Open hinted at her potential, and she has now taken the ultimate step by clinching a prestigious title on American soil.
