Kirilenko Rallies to Capture Pattaya Open

 

Kirilenko

(February 3, 2013) No. 2 seed Maria Kirilenko of Russia captured the Pattaya Open on Sunday by rallying from a set down to beat Germany’s Sabine Lisicki 5-7, 6-1, 7-6 (1).

Lisicki was serving for the match at 6-5 in the third set when Kirilenko broke her serve at love and won 11 of the last 12 points to win the match.

 

“I feel great – to win a title is always special, but it’s even more pleasure when you win such a tough one,” Kirilenko said. “It was tough. Sabine played very well. I’m very happy to win this.”

 

“I hadn’t been in a final in a while, so even though it’s a tough one to lose, I still feel very good about my week,“ said Lisicki. “I played some good tennis here. I was working so hard in the off-season and it’s nice to see it’s already paying off, especially since we’re just at the start of the year.”

 

For the No. 15 ranked Kirilenko it’s her first WTA title since 2008, sixth title overall. Four of Kirilenko’s titles have come in Asia – Beijing (2005), Kolkata (2007), Seoul (2008) and Pattaya City (2013).

Kirilenko is projected to move up to No. 13 when the rankings are relaeased on Monday.

In the doubles final 42-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm paired with Casey Dellacqua to capture their first doubles title together. It was Dellacqua’s first-ever doubles title.
