MYSKINA CLAIMS QATAR CROWN
Russian Anastasia Myskina won her third career title on Sunday, defeating countrywoman Elena Likhovtseva in the final of the Qatar Women's Open.
Myskina, the second seed, needed just 58 minutes to register a 6-3 6-1 victory over the fifth-seeded Likhovtseva, in the first all-Russian final in WTA Tour history.
"I am very proud of being part of history," Myskina said.
"I played really well today and I am very happy. I did not have a game plan, I just tried to win the points.
"The first set was a bit tight, but after the break in the seventh game everything worked.
"The second set was not as easy as the score shows, I fought all the way."
Myskina, who is the 11th-ranked player in the world, took home £16,000 in her first victory since the Brazil Open in September.
Likhovtseva was seeking her third career title and first since 1997.
"Anastasia played really well," Likhovtseva said.
"She was in control throughout the whole match. She served real well, was aggressive and took many chances.
"She mixes up her game a lot which makes it really hard to control."
In 1972 when Russia was part of the Soviet Union, Olga Morozova defeated Marina Kroshina in the final of the Eastern Grass Court Championships in New Jersey.
