Oudin beats Jankovic in AEGON Classic final
Oudin swept past her more illustrious Serbian opponent 6-4, 6-2 to win the tournament, which has a prize fund of $220,000 and is a major warm-up event for Wimbledon.
The title was the first WTA singles win for Oudin, who has never been ranked higher than 31st in the world.
It was her second victory against Jankovic in two matches, both on grass, after Oudin beat the Serb 6-7(8), 7-5, 6-2 on her way to reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon in 2009.
Oudin`s best results have so far come on the hard courts of the U.S. Open, where she reached the quarterfinals in 2009 and took last year`s mixed doubles title with Jack Sock.
Jankovic, ranked 22nd in the world, has not won a WTA singles event since Indian Wells in March 2010.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
