Italy's Schiavone eases to Kremlin Cup title

Nov 30, -0001
MOSCOW: Italy's Francesca Schiavone eased to her second career title with a 6-3 6-0 thrashing of Belarussian Olga Govortsova in the Kremlin Cup final on Sunday.

After a nervous first set, where both players had trouble holding their serve, the eighth seed ran away with the second as 67th-ranked Govortsova was hampered by a painful rib injury.

The 29-year-old Italian, whose only other title was in Bad Gastein in 2007, screamed in delight after putting away the last point.

Third seed and home favourite Mikhail Youzhny takes on sixth-seeded Serb Janko Tipsarevic in the men's final later on Sunday. AGENCIES
