Radwanska beats Konta to take China Open title

BEIJING: Agnieszka Radwanska beat Johanna Konta in straight sets to take the title at the China Open on Sunday, her third crown of the season.

The third-ranked Pole — who cruised through the tournament without dropping a set — sealed her second title in Beijing with an ace for a 6-4, 6-2 win.

After dropping her serve twice in each set, Britain’s Konta tried to even the scoreline in the second, pushing Radwanska to two break points in the sixth game.

But the Pole — nicknamed the Magician for her ability to conjure up shots — shot a forehand down the line to save her service game.

Konta held the next with a forehand dropshot that Radwanska redirected wide.

But the Pole then served for the title, firing her only ace of the match straight down the line for her third Premier Mandatory title, one rung down from a Grand Slam.
