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