Martinez Sanchez wins Korea Open

SEOUL - Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez won the Hansol Korea Open yesterday, defeating Galina Voskoboeva in the final in straight sets, 7-6 (0), 7-6 (2).

The Spaniard, who was the six seed for the tournament on Seoul’s Olympic Park hard courts, showed her experience in both tie-breaks, allowing her opponent from Kazakhstan just two points. The first set saw just one break of serve each, but Martinez Sanchez took control of the tie-break.

Martinez Sanchez, ranked 36th in the world, took control of the second tie-break against an increasingly frustrated Voskoboeva, ranked 82nd, to win her fifth title and her second of 2011.
