In the all-unseeded final Sewing defeated Great Britain’s Emilie Lindh 6-1, 1-6, 6-1.
It was a breakthrough win in a number of ways for the teen who last year played as a freshman at the University of Miami. She was injured much of her freshman year in 2017-18, going 1-3 in singles and 0-2 in doubles. She came into college play after reaching a career-high No. 9 in the ITF world junior rankings, and was the No. 3 prospect in the nation according to the Tennis Recruiting Network.
The American improved to 1-1 in career pro finals.
Lindh did not face a seeded player en route to the final, in the semifinals posting a comeback win against American qualifier Zoe Gwen Scandalis 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-3. The 19-year-old Brit was appearing in her first pro final after finishing last year ranked No. 1,030 on the WTA rankings.
