Maria Kirilenko rallied from a set down to beat Samantha Stosur 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 for the title at the Korea Open.

"I was very happy to make it to the final a second time," said Kirilenko, who lost a three-set match to Williams last year.

"I feel good. I feel tired," Kirilenko said.

Stosur, who has won 22 WTA Tour doubles titles, is still trying for her first in singles play. She dropped to 0-4 lifetime in singles finals.

"I think I got a little bit passive with the way I was playing, and she stepped it up a little bit and became more aggressive," Stosur said.

This is Maria's third title of 2008 and the fifth of her career. She also won earlier this year in Estoril and Barcelona.
