Den Bosch, Netherlands (Sports Network) - Romanian Simona Halep won her second title in as many weeks with a victory over Belgian Kirsten Flipkens in Saturday's final at the Topshelf Open.

Halep beat Flipkens, the No. 4 seed, by a 6-4, 6-2 margin at Autotron Rosmalen. The match featured a 75-minute rain delay in the first set.

The 21-year-old Halep, who captured her first-ever WTA title in Germany last week, improved to 2-3 in title matches.

The 27-year-old Flipkens appeared in her second career WTA final. Her lone tour championship came in Quebec City last season.

Halep, who is now 3-0 lifetime against Flipkens, took home $43,000 for the victory.

Wimbledon starts on Monday. Halep will face Olga Govortsova in the first round, while Flipkens will take on Yulia Putintseva.
