A USTA South Carolina congrats to Alison Riske, who loves Hilton Head Island almost as much as she loves her native Pittsburgh, for winning her first career title last weekend. Riske beat Belinda Bencic to win the inaugural Tianjin Open in China.

From the WTA:

“It’s a huge accomplishment for me to win my first WTA title,” Riske said after the match, “and I was here by myself, which made it even more special, just to know that I was able to do it by myself.

“I hope I can keep up the momentum and try to compete every week as best as I can.”
