Kuznetsova edges Vekic for second Citi Open title
WASHINGTON -- Svetlana Kuznetsova won her second title at the Citi Open, and first at any WTA tournament in two years, by erasing four match points to beat Donna Vekic 4-6, 7-6 (7), 6-2 on Sunday.
The No. 7 seed Vekic was one point from victory four times in the second set but was not able to close it out.
Kuznetsova is a two-time Grand Slam champion, but she is currently ranked only 128th, the lowest spot for a women’s champion at the hard-court tournament.
She also won the Citi Open in 2014.
