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,"
"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,"
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,"
