Kuznetsova wins Kremlin Cup

Svetlana Kuznetsova cruised to her 17th career title at the Kremlin Cup on Saturday.

The Russian superstar needed just 74 minutes to ease past Daria Gavrilova 6-2, 6-1 on the hard courts of Moscow.

However, it was the Australian who had the better start, breaking her at the first opportunity.

But Kuznetsova rallied from 0-2 down to win the final six games to close out the set.

The two-time grand slam winner then increased her game winning streak to ten after winning the first four games on the trot in the second set.

The second set blitz took only 27 minutes as Kuznetsova notched up her third title of 2016 to qualify for the WTA Finals in Singapore.
