In 2019, Madison Keys overcame Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki in the final to win the title in straight sets, winning 7–6(7–5), 6–3. This was after the defending champion Kiki Bertens lasted till only the third round before going down to Maria Sakkari.

Bertens had won the title in 2018 by beating Julia Goerges in a one-sided final winning 6-2, 6-1 to clinch the trophy. This was after she had been a match-point down in the final set in her semi-final against Madison Keys. She went on to win that match in a tie-breaker.
In the other semi-final, the fifth seeded Goerges overcame Anastasija Sevastova in a tough, straight-set win after having sent out the defending champion, third seeded Daria Kasatkina in the previous round. 12th seeded Bertens had sent Alize Cornet out in the quarter-finals.
