Jelena Jankovic defeated Vera Zvonareva 6-2 6-4 in Moscow on Sunday to secure her third title in a row. Jelena also beat the Russian on her way to winning titles in Stuttgart and Beijing in the past two weeks.

"I've played her twice in the last two weeks so I really knew what to expect and was focussed right from the start," said Jankovic.

"I dominated in the first set but in the second my concentration slipped a little bit but I was able to get myself together in the end."

JJ has been playing almost non-stop in the last couple of months and must keep going for another week in Zurich before taking a well-deserved rest.

"I've worked really hard in the last three weeks, winning three titles in a row. It's not easy," she told reporters.

"But I still have my commitments to play next week in Zurich. Then I'll take a two-week rest before playing (next month's season-ending WTA Championships) in Doha.

"I've had a tough season, overcoming a number of injuries but I'm quite close to finishing the year ranked number one and I'm really proud of it," she added.

This was first Kremlin Cup final for Zvonareva on her eighth appearance in Moscow, and she said she could do little to stop Jankovic.

"It seems she had an answer for everything I tried," said Vera.

I think tennis may now have a new queen for the #1 position. I think she can hold onto this ranking for a while (as long as her back doesn't act up). Sorry I haven't got that graphic image to you yet for your website. In the mean time could you just add our website to your left nav under "Best Tennis Sites". We appreciate you Svetland and keep up the good work.

P.S. Check out our new Facebook pictures. We have one with Jankovic posing with some our employees from the Sony Ericsson Open from earlier this year.
