Venus Finishes Kirilenko In Korean Open

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Top-seeded Venus Williams beat Maria Kirilenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 in the championship of the Korean Open on Sunday.

"Sometimes in the match I was a little disappointed with the errors I was making, and it made it a lot tougher for me," said Williams, who won her third title of the season. "But at the end, I guess in the last few games, I started to play much better."

Williams hadn't lost a set in the tournament heading into the final, but she had to work to improve to 3-0 in her career against Kirilenko, who had a nine-match winning streak.

Williams had five double-faults and was broken three times in the second set. She finished with 11 double-faults for the match. But Williams broke Kirilenko twice in the third to secure the win.
