Agnieszka Radwanska overcame top seed Vera Zvonareva to claim her first title in over three years with victory at the Mercury Insurance open in Carlsbad.

Radwanska, the third seed, was battling a shoulder problem but never dropped a serve in a 6-3 6-4 victory.  It is the Pole’s first title since Eastbourne in 2008, and her fifth career title. The defeat ended a career-high nine-game winning streak for the Russian Zvonareva. Radwanska pocketed the first set in 30 minutes on the back of a service break in the fourth game. She took control of the second set with a break for 2-1 and carried the margin to the win.

The champion said: “Everything was working. Even though I had two really tough matches in the quarters and semi-finals, I played very well today. “I really wanted to win this tournament so I was really focused from the beginning. Winning a tournament with a lot of great matches against top players is very special.”
