Agnieszka Radwanska won the pan pacific open!

Tokyo, Japan (Sports Network) - Agnieszka Radwanska defeated fourth-seeded Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2, to win the $2.05 million Pan Pacific Open tennis event. The 22-year-old, ninth-seeded Radwanska earned her second title of the year in as many finals appearances. Both victories came over Zvonareva, as she also defeated the 2010 Wimbledon and U.S. Open runner-up in Carlsbad back in August. The Pole notched her sixth career title in her eighth career final.

Radwanska won her first singles title in three years when she beat Zvonareva in Carlsbad, Calif., in August. The Polish star also beat the...
Russian player in the third round at the Rogers Cup in Toronto the week after Carlsbad. With the tournament victory, Radwanska still has a chance to reach the WTA Championships in Turkey. “Before here, I didn’t have really big chances because I was around 14th,” Radwanska said. “I just knew that I had to play really well here and in Beijing just to have a chance. Now, for sure my chances are much bigger to go so I will fight to the end.” The top eight singles players qualify for the WTA Championships. Radwanska is projected to move up to 12th in the rankings after her victory.
