BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) -- Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova won her sixth career title Sunday, beating Croatian teenager Donna Vekic 7-6 (5), 6-4 in the final of the Aegon Classic.

The 16-year-old Vekic stayed close against Hantuchova, who is 14 years older.

Down a break in the first set, Vekic broke back to force a tiebreaker. The 60th-ranked Hantuchova went ahead 5-2 in the tiebreaker and held off Vekic's comeback to clinch the first set.

A late break in a tight second set allowed Hantuchova to capture the title.
