The Aegon Classic is Madison Keys' first title this year

American Madison Keys beat Barbora Strycova in straight sets to win the Aegon Classic in Birmingham.

Keys' semi-final win over Carla Suarez Navarro on Saturday saw her move into the world's top 10 for the first time.

And she followed it up with a routine 6-3 6-4 victory over Czech Strycova, who finished runner-up for the second time in three years.

It was 21-year-old Keys' first title of the year and comes a week before the start of Wimbledon.
