Kippax, the world number 25 had reached the final with considerably less drama and time on court than top-seeded Teran, the world number 14 from Mexico, but having survived a five-game thriller in the semi-finals Teran’s luck ran out in a final featuring five close games.
Teran led twice, Kippax levelled twice, and the Mexican had match ball at 10-9 in the decider but Kippax took three points in a row to take the game and the title after 80 pulsating minutes.
“Very tight! Very happy!” tweeted an ecstatic winner.
Final:  Sarah Kippax (Eng) bt  Samantha Teran (Mex)11/8, 6/11, 11/9, 8/11, 12/10 (80m)
