The Estonian, 27, lost just two games in the opening set before securing a crucial break from 5-5 in the second to lift the title in Belgium.

Both Kanepi and her opponent Peng had prevailed in their semi-final encounters earlier in the day on the red clay.

Kanepi beat Jamie Hampton 7-6(6) 6-4, while the Chinese eighth seed beat Switzerland's Romina Oprandi 6-4 2-6 6-4 in a two hour and 24 minutes epic on centre court.
