CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Angelique Kerber won six of the last seven games to rally past Madison Keys and win the Family Circle Cup 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 on Sunday.

This was Kerber's fourth WTA title and first since Linz in 2013. She broke serve five times against an opponent who hadn't lost serve all week.

Kerber trailed 4-1 in the final set, with the 20-year-old American using a strong serve to build what looked like a solid lead. The German won 12 of the next 16 to tie the match. Keys moved in front once more at 5-4 before Kerber took control for good.

Kerber won the next game at love, then rallied from 40-0 down to break serve and pull ahead. Keys made four straight errors in the final game to give Kerber the match.
