Radwanska wins Seoul title

It took her three sets and two hours and 45 minutes, but top seed Agnieszka Radwanska won the Korea Open championship today when she defeated Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 in the final. Pavlyuchenkova beat Francesca Schiavone 7-6 (8), 7-6 (11) in her semifinal match, in which she had to come from behind in both sets.

This is Radwanska's 13th WTA title, and her third of 2013.

In doubles, the top seeds, Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears, were upset in the final by Chan Chin-Wei and Xu Yi-Fan, who defeated them 7-5, 6-3.

I thought it was an exciting match with many great rallies and points in it. Both players had patches of play where they were not at their best. For the most part there was great creative shotmaking at the net, lobs etc. and some great striking zingers from Pavlyuchenkova. Enjoyed it greatly.

When Pavlyuchenkova is switched on, she is so much fun to watch. She sees the ball with such accuracy. Oh, consistency........
