(September 22, 2013) Agnieszka Radwanska rallied to beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-4 to win the Korea Open on Sunday.
“Especially after a great match, almost three hours of great tennis at a really high level, of course I’m very happy,” said the Polish player. “It was a very close match – tight sets, all of them – but I was just a little bit better in the important moments today. And at the end of the third set I think I was playing a little bit more aggressively than she was, and I managed to win a couple more points than her in the end.”
“I’m actually proud of myself. I had a great week. I showed some good tennis and it was a great final. And I was pretty tired – not only after a few tough matches, but even coming into the tournament after being in the States and the jet lag. So I’m proud to be in the final and come so close to the title.”
Radwanska won the match in 2 hours, 45 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium in Seoul. It was her 13th tournament tile of her career, her first tournament win since January when she captured the event in Sydney in January.
