MOSCOW - World number one Jelena Jankovic of Serbia beat Russian Vera Zvonareva in the final to win the women's draw of the 2.4 million dollar Kremlin Cup on Sunday.
Jankovic won 6-2, 6-4 in one hour 21 minutes to record a fourth victory in five head-to-heads with Zvonareva this season and clinch her fourth crown this year.
"I feel really emotional winning my third event in a row here," Jankovic said. "I feel great as the world's number one and really enjoy it.
"It was very tough to win the final as Vera never gives up. She forced me to play my best tennis to win today. I had a lot of fun this week and probably will come back here next year to defend my title."
The 23-year-old Serbian, who was playing her sixth final of the season, started the match with an immediate break for a comfortable 2-0 lead. Jankovic then broke again to take the opening set in 33 minutes.
