In tennis, Belgium's Elise Mertens has claimed the biggest title of her career by beating top seed Simona Halep 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 to win the Qatar Open. 

Mertens, 23, recovered from a set and a break down - losing 18 points in a row at one stage in the second set - to beat the world number three Simona. Romania's Halep outclassed her opponent in the opening set, but Mertens powered back into the match to force a decider. 

This is world number 21 Mertens' first-ever WTA Premier-level crown, and the fifth title of her career overall.
