BEIJING (AP) - Serena Williams erased a match point in the second set and came all the way back to beat U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 Sunday at the China Open for her first title in six months.
"I just never gave up. I really didn't want to lose today," the top-seeded Williams said. "I haven't won a title since March, which really isn't like me."
Williams ended Kuznetsova's 14-match winning streak. The second-seeded Russian won her previous two events: the U.S. Open and a tournament in Bali last week.
"I think next time I'm going to be more fit playing against Serena," Kuznetsova said. "In the third set, I couldn't serve well because I couldn't push myself, I couldn't push with my legs on my serve."
